JOB SUMMARY

Our Italian concept, Anda!, was created during a food-lovers trip around Italy, with David drafting its core menu on a napkin onboard a train between Rome and Florence. Fusing the best from a Roman trattoria, Neapolitan pizzeria and Florentine steakhouse, Anda! serves up thin and crispy pizzas, artisan pasta and the juiciest bistecca Fiorentina cooked over a wood fired grill. An open plan kitchen showcases the theatre of Italian cooking inside a stylish space full of industrial-modern design. A laid back atmosphere is punctuated by relaxed and friendly service, rich aromas and communal dining areas. Part of the success of Anda! is its approachable Italy-focussed wine list and Aperitivo-style cocktail menu, making it a popular lunch, after-work and midweek dinner spot.
