Plant Club founders Antonio Alderuccio and Daniele Inn Rivolta want to make classic Italian dishes accessible to all diners


London’s first gluten-free, plant-based Italian restaurant Plant Club has opened in Newington Green.

The eatery, which is owned by Antonio Alderuccio and Daniele Inn Rivolta, aims to make classic Italian dishes accessible to all diners.

Its current location, which seats 45 diners, is temporary, with the founders planning to move to a permanent location soon.

Dishes on the menu at the pop-up often change, but always include antipasti, primi, and a selection of vegan pizzas.

Boasting organic ingredients, options on offer include Pasta Cacio e Pepe and its Regina pizza featuring oyster mushrooms and truffle oil.

The eatery also boasts a substantial vegan wine list, including Sete Tropicale and Putes Feministes.

Non drinkers can choose from alcohol-free options including an Italian alcohol-free Spumante called ODD Bird, or locally-brewed Kombucha.

Co-founder and chef Antonio Alderuccio told Forbes: “We’re extremely excited to be opened again to the public, serving our delicious gluten-free and plant-based dishes to locals and visitors. 

“The feedback has been amazing so far and really shows us how unique our offer is – we’ve big plans for the future and we can’t wait to expand in London and abroad.”

Plant Club is located at 49 Green Lanes, N16 9BU. It is open on Thursday and Friday from 5-11pm. It is open on Saturday from 1-11pm, and on Sunday from 1-8pm.
