Etrusca Past…Comm. Lino Quaradeghini established the group’s first restaurant, La Spezia, back in 1951, introducing Londoners to the traditional values of Italian cooking, using fresh and simple ingredients in a creative way.
Several years later in 1967, Lino bought Taberna Etrusca, demonstrating the confidence and knowledge that he now had in the London restaurant industry and securing his place among the finest restaurateurs in the city.
Etrusca Restaurants are now run by two of his grandchildren, Rocco and Tara Quaradeghini, and remains one of the few privately owned groups in the U.K. They inherited their love of the business working alongside their parents.
They have seen many changes in dining trends over the years and feel that their success is down to the uncomplicated and traditional values and policies they have inherited from their parents, and continue to apply.
