Laura (front of house) is from Manchester and fell in love with Italy’s language, scenery and great food during a 2-week holiday on Lake Garda at the age of 17. She decided to become fluent in Italian so she would have an excuse to go back there, and so far she’s pretty convinced she will never finish her Italian journey.
Giordano (head chef) is from northern Italy and has a real passion for food and travel. He grew up in a family with their own history in the restaurant business, so he’s been learning about Italian cuisine from a very early age. His father has been a chef for more than 40 years in some of Italy’s best restaurants, and he’s decided to follow in his footsteps.
Based in Manchester, Tigellae offer bespoke mobile catering with a difference. With the help of our Vanstaurant (our Italian kitchen on the road) we want to bring you every aspect of the Italian dining experience, from beautiful artisan pasta to the lightest, fluffiest tiramisu you can imagine.

We specialise in a wide variety of artisan pasta dishes and our menus offer plenty of regional specialities too, such as rustic focaccia, risotto and polenta with beef brasato in Barolo wine. For dessert, we make tiramisu pots in a variety of flavours including classic coffee, strawberry and limoncello and chocolate and salted caramel, plus many more such as profiteroles, cakes, tartufi and Sicilian cannoli.

"Tigellae catered for a special party we hosted for family and friends. Their communication from the outset was superb. They offered very appropriate menu suggestions for both adults and children. They arrived promptly; were exceptionally generous with their time and their food, which was delicious! Their optional buffet table was a great success with all guests. Overall, their service was faultless. All my guests were incredibly impressed. Would definitely highly recommend and use again."

"Tigellae catered a 40th birthday party for my husband and the service and food were both exceptional! A great buffet, well thought out and expertly put together. When we had to change plans mid-buffet due to an injured nephew the team were incredibly flexible and understanding which was hugely appreciated. Would definitely recommend."
