This February, one of the world’s finest Italian restaurants, Giannino Dal 1899 is openings its doors for the first time in London’s Mayfair. The restaurant first opened its doors in Milan 120 years ago and since then has become a globally renowned establishment serving the very best Italian dishes inspired by traditional Italian 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 Mayfair on 10 Blenheim Street the Giannino Dal 1899 London restaurant has been designed by Italian architectural studio Spagnulo & Partners and features a soft, refined aesthetic that perfectly embodies the welcoming atmosphere that Gianinno Dal 1899 is renowned for in Milan.
General Manager of Giannino Dal 1899 Milan, Giuseppe Varrella comments, “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 Na- poletano; a 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 are carefully crafted by Executive Chef Salvatore Suzzi. The new London Giannino 1899 is truly an impressive continuation of the incredible food that has become the talk of the town in Milan.
“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, ” concludes the restaurant’s Executive Chef.
With a reputation that precedes it, the new London establishment is certainly going to be one of the must visit restaurants of 2020.
