Voglia at Montague Markets Makes Your Italian Food Wishes Come True

Wishing for more Italian food options? Voglia, a new restaurant specialising in southern comfort food and hand-stretched pizza, is set to open at the Montague Markets and it promises to fill your desire for delicious, authentic Italian dishes. 

Voglia, which is Italian for desire or wish, is a concept from Vito and Bradie Mandarano. The partners also run Vito’s Cucina & Bar in Ascot. 

Inspired by their relaxing weekends at beautiful restaurants in the Amalfi Coast, the pair is hoping to recreate and deliver that same flavour and feel at their new West End eatery. 

Aiming for a full dining experience in a laidback atmosphere, Voglia plans to back old-fashioned hospitality. Once opened, the new Italian foodie spot will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner indoors or via its grab-and-go window. 

The husband and wife team thought of incorporating heaps of food choices to suit all tastes — from counter takeaways to gourmet meals enjoyed at the table, to a full-a-la-carte fare for a memorable evening feast.

Vito will be serving his favourite Spaghetti ala Nerano on the menu, which perfectly defines life in the Sorrentine peninsula. The spaghetti is simple yet sophisticated and tasteful. It’s flavoured with onions, chilli, garlic, zucchini, tomatoes, pancetta pangrattato, calamiri fritti and white wine.

But gourmet pizza will be the biggest pull as Voglia has a pizzaiolo from Naples working the magic in the kitchen. 

The Mandaranos plan to launch by the end of the month. Follow their Facebook page for updates and trading hours.
