Italo was opened in 2008 by Charlie Boxer, Frank Boxer and Luigi diLieto.

As a community based shop in the heart of Bonnington Square, one of the longest running and most successful experiments in alternative social living in Europe.

Very much aiming to reflect the values of the community; despite its growing reputation for the food which comes out of the kitchen, and the quality of it’s stock, it has remained what it always intended to be, a corner shop for all the folk in the neighbourhood.
