Trattoria Magnetti is owned and run by brothers Sean and Marco Magnetti. Originally setup by their parents Sergio and Mary Magnetti on Cross street in 1989, the business then moved to Quay street in 1994. It was then called “Pasta Mista”- Mixed Pasta as they made all their own fresh pasta, a tradition which is still in place today. It was a humble beginning with a simple menu that Mary had learned from Sergio’s Italian Aunts on various holiday trips to Italy.
Some recipies from the very first menu board in 1989 are still on our menu today!
