Italian family run by Mauro Sannio and his team, La Banca is a fully licensed
restaurant serving authentic Italian cuisine with a refined twist of elegance,
to suit all types of occasions in a relaxing and family-friendly atmosphere.
La Banca is situated in a neo-classical Victorian stone clad building, formerly a bank dating back to the 1910's and is
located in Cotteridge Village, a stone throw away from Cadbury's Bournville. The building boasts large windows on the
frontage that produces natural light into the dining area and high ceilings giving the restaurant a spacious feel.
The décor has a calming theme, with subtle light effects that makes a dining experience an intimate occasion.
“My aim is to serve good homemade Italian food like my mother's,
but add my own personality to reinvent the dish”.
Opened in July 2009, La Banca has thrived to demonstrate its traditional values of serving authentic
Italian cuisine in a modernstyle, with creative skills introduced from executive chef Mauro Sannio.
Born in a remote village outside Naples, Italy, Mauro has developed his expertise over the past 37 years,
and in turn taught them to others over the last 12 years. Mauro has always insisted that his passion
and creativity for Italian cuisine originates from his mother.
