Milanese restaurant Giannino Dal 1899 will open a site in London's Mayfair in February.
The Milan restaurant serves food inspired by traditional Italian home cooking. The Mayfair site located at 10 Blenheim Street is the first new expansion of the brand.
General manager of the Milan site, Giuseppe Varrella, said: “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.”
Executive chef Salvatori Suzzi will bring his a la carte menu of traditional Italian dishes with a modern twist.
Italian architectural studio Spagnulo & Partners have designed the interiors with a soft aesthetic that revisits the design and atmosphere of the Milan restaurant.
Giovanni Bindi opened the original in 1899. It was inherited by his son Caesar and has attracted guests including Grace Kelly, Ava Gardner and Gregory Peck.
It offers historical dishes from the Milanese tradition, such as ossobuco, risotto and veal cutlet and a wine list made up from 150 bins.
