The latest venture to announce plans to move into the Brentford Project is Rottura.

This will be an all-day dining restaurant and café set up by MasterChef: The Professionals 2021 quarter finalist Elena Frattura and her twin sister Emily.

They hail from the Ealing area and Elena has worked at the Michelin-starred La Trompette restaurant in Chiswick while Emily runs a cake-making business.

Emily said, “The Brentford Project is such an appealing new neighbourhood with a fantastic atmosphere. To be able to open here is the perfect launch pad for Rottura, which reflects our passion for Italy and desire to bring a little of its food, coffee and culture to West London, creating the perfect place in which to enjoy la dolce vita.”

The venue will be in one of the High Street facing units of the development and take up 1,220 sq ft to provide 46 covers plus some external seating.

The food served will be Italian in emphasis using seasonal and authentic ingredients. There will be tray baked pizza as well as coffee and pastries.

The opening is planned for later this year and will add to a food and beverage offering in the development which already includes Sam’s Waterside and Sam’s Larder, as well as Pret A Manger and Gail’s.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
