Meet the restaurant

Enoteca Turi - London SW1W 8PH

Enoteca Turi is an independent family-run Italian restaurant with an award winning wine list, offering regionally inspired cuisine, using traditional and seasonal ingredients.

Giuseppe Turi grew up on a farm in Puglia, a region famed for its abundance of fresh seasonal produce. He moved to London in 1982 and after training as a sommelier at the Connaught hotel, opened Enoteca Turi with his wife Pamela in 1990. Since then the restaurant has grown organically, developing its own style of food, a notable Italian wine cellar and, thanks to the dedicated and talented team, its convivial ambience.

Their customers, many of whom have been with us since the start, have been their best critics, telling them what they really think about the changes they make along the way.

With warmth, they invite you to come and be part of our journey!

Head Chef - Stefano Tortelli

Stefano is from Rome, and since moving to London in 2017, he worked for Soho House and Gordon Ramsay; he is now discovering the cuisine of his roots and reinterpreting regional dishes with a modern twist. “Cooking is my passion, and it is great to work with Giuseppe whose knowledge of the Italian food heritage and love for Italy are inspiring.” Stefano has added a touch of sophistication to our classic favourites.

"The cornerstone of our operation is the raw ingredients. Over the years, we have built up relationships with a number of artisan producers whose integrity we trust. It is the only way to ensure that the quality of the dishes remains consistently high and we can deliver authentic Italian flavours.”
