Like every good Italian dish, Mr Francatelli has its own special recipe: authentic Italian ingredients, a passion for wholesome, tasty food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere where everyone is family. We come from southern Italy, where food is everything and sharing it with friends and family makes it even more delicious. We came to the UK in 2014, and once we’d settled down and noted the British people’s growing interest in simple, tasty food, we decided to open Mr Francatelli in 2018, bringing a taste of our beloved Italy to West Norwood. We got the idea for the name ‘Mr Francatelli’ when watching the TV series “Victoria”. In fact, Charles Francatelli was a British cook from an Italian family who worked as Queen Victoria’s head chef. Our long experience in the food business has taught us that if our customers are happy, we are happy. And this is what we aim to achieve every single day by offering a warm welcome, mouth-watering, nutritious food and a place that feels like home. All our dishes are made from scratch with authentic Italian ingredients, lots of love and -most importantly of all- patience. Just like our grandmothers taught us.
