The Mercato Metropolitano of Elephant & Castle is the transposition in London of what had already been a huge success in Milan and Turin, before they closed their doors. In London for the first period it represented the best of Italian gastronomy, before conforming to other markets and drastically reducing the choice of Italian foods in favour of a more multi-ethnic option.
