About us

Padella is all about making exceptional pasta available at an affordable price.

Our first restaurant opened in Borough Market, the historic food market in London Bridge, to critical acclaim in March 2016.  We hand-roll over 700 portions of pasta everyday, serving fresh pasta dishes with traditionally made sauces using only the best seasonal British and European ingredients we can get our hands on.  We cut no corners - whether it’s baking our own bread and tarts, churning our own ice cream or hand-filling our ravioli.  We’re a fast-paced, fun restaurant and if that’s something that excites you keep reading…

Role description

Our Shoreditch Mission 

This February we’re opening our new Padella site in Shoreditch and we’re looking for talented people of all levels to join our front and back of house teams.  We’re holding open days on Monday the 13th and Tuesday the 14th of January - so if you’re looking for a new opportunity to start 2020 with a bang, please get in touch. 


How will our open days work?

This is a chance for you to see what Padella is all about, meet the team and see if you like our vibe. 

  • Monday 13th (Front of House) - This day is dedicated to all levels of front of house, everything from being a runner to a deputy manager.  


  • Tuesday 14th (Back of House) - This day is dedicated to the back of house team, everything from being a KP to all chef levels in the kitchen. 

FOH/BOH positions will be a mixture hourly/salary. Hourly will range from £10 - £14 and Salary of £23k-£35k - this depends on role and candidate.
