My mother, Danielle Furci is a New Yorker. My Father, an Italian Jazz musician. My mother bought her first pasta making machine, started to make fresh pasta and launched Spaghetti Junction in Lewes, East Sussex in 1981. We joined forces in 1998, moving the business to Brighton, and Spaghetti Junction Mk 2 was born, which we ran together for 5 wonderful years.
In the intervening years I’ve managed restaurants and worked in the evolving London Restaurant scene, with a special interest in Street Food.
Caccia & Tails is a product of this heritage and a desire to bring a modern casual dining experience to my home town. On a trip to visit family in Genova, we realised that Focaccia Genovese was too good to leave behind. This regional style of Focaccia, which is eaten upside down to allow the salt to hit your tongue, is probably something you haven’t experienced yet… You will!
