Tucked away at Woo Cheong Pawn Shop on Johnston Road, the iconic heritage building, CRUST Italian is the definitive new destination for those seeking flavors and aromas of Naples and the Amalfi Coast’s acclaimed food culture.
Combining an all-day Pasticceria (pastry and coffee shop) and a restaurant including an all-day takeaway counter known as ‘CRUST Scuscia’ (pronounced shoo-sha), which means street food in Neapolitan dialect.
The day at CRUST Italian starts early as the team of bakers prepares delicious and freshly-made pastries and authentic bread. From a morning coffee with mouth-watering flaky pastries through to lunch, afternoon tea, aperitivo hour and on to dinner, the typical Italian tradition. The elegant yet relaxed space already feels Italian, thanks to the heritage building with high ceilings, while the colors and aromas inside bring the warmth of Naples and the surrounding areas.
CRUST Italian will also offer elevated Napoli cuisine in its main dining room, named Sala Capri, after the stunning island offshore of Naples. At lunch and dinner, a la carte and set menus feature dishes celebrating the incredible bounty of produce for which southern Italy and Campania, in particular, is so renowned.
Authentic Italian street food available all day from coffees to pastries.
Anyone who likes a bite of their tasty, crusty, crisply, Italian pastries!
The Executive Chef of CRUST Italian is Sergio Landi, formerly chef at COVA.
