Gino D'Acampo to open Pasta Bar concept in London

TV chef Gino D'Acampo is planning to launch a new restaurant concept called the Pasta Bar.

The Italian chef and co-owner of Bontà Italia, a supplier of Italian ingredients, hopes to roll out the brand in central London. The idea is for customers to choose their own pasta and sauce and add toppings.

D'Acampo has instructed Davis Coffer Lyons to find A1 sites within the West End and the City of London for the grab and go format restaurant.

He has hosted a variety of TV shows, most recently the ITV programme Let's Do Lunch With Gino and Mel. He is also a former winner of ITV's I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! during which he famously killed and ate a rat.
