This February, one of the world’s finest Italian restaurants, Giannino Dal 1899 is opening its doors for the very first time in London’s upmarket Mayfair district.
The restaurant first launched in Milan around 120 years ago and has since become a globally renowned establishment serving the very best Italian dishes inspired by the country’s traditional home-cooking.
The opening of the Mayfair restaurant signifies the expansion of the Giannino brand as its first step outside of Italy.
Located in the heart of the affluent area, on 10 Blenheim Street, the Giannino Dal 1899 London restaurant has been designed by Italian architectural studio Spagnulo and Partners and features a soft, refined aesthetic that perfectly embodies the welcoming atmosphere that restaurant is renowned for in Milan.
Giuseppe Varrella, the general manager of Giannino Dal 1899 Milan, told Luxury Lifestyle Magazine: “Since we first had the idea, we always wanted to make sure that if we ever expanded internationally our venues would maintain the same level of class and refinement, while still effectively melting into the fine dining London scene.”
Giannino Dal 1899 will bring the traditional Italian kitchen to the tables of Mayfair with an à la carte menu featuring traditional dishes with a modern twist.
The menu will host much loved favourites such as Babà di Lasagne al Ragù Napoletano, which offers the perfect fusion between the culture of southern and northern Italy, or the revisited classic Spaghetti Aglio with Olio e Peperoncino and Mazara Del Vallo Red Prawns crudo.
All are carefully crafted by executive chef Salvatore Suzzi, who added: “Of course there will be homemade desserts, including orange cannoncini with Namelaka cream and raspberry sauce, a reinterpretation of the traditional Sicilian dessert, to which is added a soft cream typical of the Japanese tradition.”
The new London Giannino 1899 is an impressive continuation of the incredible food that has become the talk of the town in Milan and, with this level of reputation preceding it, the new London establishment is certainly going to be one of the must visit restaurants of 2020.
