About Spelzini

Spelzini is an all-day restaurant and bar in the heart of Shoreditch, that celebrates the best of British produce and the culinary traditions of London’s Mediterranean community.

Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and Aperitivo, Spelzini serves simple, quick and affordable dishes, from gastronomic Sandwiches to gluten-free Chickpea Flour Flat Bread Pizzas and Cicchetti-style sharing plates, alongside an eclectic drinks menu of wine, aperitifs and vermouth cocktails.

Founded by Jim Fisher, Spelzini takes its names from Jim’s great grandfather, Luigi Spelzini, a fishmonger and grocer who moved to London in the 1890s from Liguria in Italy. Spelzini pays homage to the European culture that Luigi and others brought to London and which introduced Britain to the Mediterranean’s best gastronomic traditions, transforming the capital in the 20th Century with Italian delis, Cypriot milk bars and Southern French patisseries.

The drinks list has been curated by renowned London barman Fin Spiteri and includes aperitifs and vermouth cocktails, such as The Reduction Spritz (Campari, Vermouth & Prosecco), Milano Mule (Vodka, White Vermouth & Ginger Beer) and The White Port One (White Port, Vermouth, Fernet Branca). These are available alongside a selection of organic and natural red, white and rose wines sourced from Ellis Wines, Sherry, Champagne and beer brewed from Forest Road Brewing Company.

Spelzini will also regularly showcase special bottles of rare Vermouth, such as 1960s bottles of Cinzano, which will on occasion be served by the glass to guests.
