Time Out says

An authentic Italian restaurant with a zero-waste policy

Inspired by local markets in Italy, Mille Nonne (which literally translates to 1,000 grandmothers) pays homage to tradition while taking a modern and sustainable approach. That means food is freshly cooked in small batches and ingredients are used to their full extent. For example, leftover bread becomes croutons, which can be ground down to make Palermitana chicken. Or the basil bought for seasoning dishes can also be integrated into making basil lemonade – that sort of thing.

Of course, all of these fresh ideas accumulate into delicious signature dishes that are simple and healthy, for both you and the planet. There's signature lasagna made with homemade turkey bolognese and a lactose-free bechamel, alongside a vegetarian option. You should also try the turkey, spinach, and quinoa meatballs, which can be served in a sub or with a side of arugula. And you've got to make sure to nab a jar of their sauces when heading off. Located in Essex Market, it's not a sit-down sort of joint, but you can find a seat on the mezzanine or order as a takeout.

Mille Nonne says
Mille Nonne wants to pay homage to tradition without, actually, getting “stuck” in tradition. Our grandmothers were explorers, brave cooks able to turn disadvantages in advantages. They were capable of reinventing their world nourishing their communities. Mille Nonne wants to be in their path and push forth the movement.

“For me, it all started at the age of 5," says Mille Nonne Chef and Co-Founder Pilar Rigon, “walking through the local markets of Italy, picking fresh ingredients and learning how to be creative in the kitchen.”

Mille Nonne is Vegan/Vegetarian friendly, but it also serves irresistible omnivores classics revisited in our style. The zero-waste approach is part of the way ingredients are used - at their full extent - and the way recipes are created. We’ve no leftover. This is a very traditional topic in Italian cuisine.

Our motto? Italian Food with Commitment. But also: Bringing Comfort Food Out of its Comfort Zone, and Shared Happiness is Key.
