Gran Sasso From Coffee Bar to Caffè and Wine Bar to Restaurant!

Locationopened For those of us who are regulars at this long time local caffè (Gran Sasso Caffè, 44-46 Caledonian Road, N1 9DT), it's 
been the coffee and atmosphere that has made it the place to hang-out, use the internet and have meetings, but now there's more!

For some months now the owner's, Mario and Val, have been upgrading the caffè.  This has included completely redecorating the inside of the place, hiring an Italian chef to expand the menu and buying a major-league gas pizza oven (under some pressure from moi, I must add), to transform our coffee bar hang-out into a real Italian Restaurant.

IMG_1383 Last night, they launched dinner service which included a lovely selection of starters, home-made pastas, real Italian Pizza, several main entrees, and Italian desserts. (They also have a full license to serve beer, wine and spirits.)  Dinner service begins at 7:00 PM and runs until 10:00 PM.  You can take a look at the menu here: Download.

Gran Sasso has been in our neighbourhood for almost ten years now, and Val and Mario have been there for seven – starting as staff, but eventually buying the place from the former owner Enzo, who moved up North.  There is a strong local following and they boy's hope that their neighbours will come in to sample the new menu and enjoy the ecletic atmosphere.

For those of you who do drop in and mention the King's Cross Community Bulletin Board, there will be a glass of wine on the house for every diner. 

We hope you drop in and support this long-time local establishment.  By the way, my favorite – The Gran Sasso Special Pizza with Parma Ham and Rocket…  enjoy!

  2. great news – the lunchtime pizzas were always fantastic

    wonderful to see a local business actually thrive and grow due to ‘regeneration’ rather than just have more starbucks and nandos move in
