Our History

Over 150 years ago Giovanni Massarella, our Great grandfather, and his brothers set off from Setterfrati in Italy in search of a better life. No one really knows why or how they ended up in England and we can only presume that like lots of Italians they were intending to go to America, but for some reason they abandoned their journey and ended up settling in the North of England. Being pretty clannish the Italians like being with their own and it is feasible to think that they knew someone from their region who had already settled here in England.
