Tracey Pollard


San Carlo Restaurant Group is to launch a new Italian restaurant concept in St Christopher’s Place, in Spring 2021. The 6,000 sq.ft. 200 cover Italian restaurant with two outdoor dining terraces, takes the unit previously traded by Carluccios and will provide a new all day concept catering for shoppers and dinners alike.

One of the UK’s most successful independent restaurant groups, San Carlo is owned by the Distefano family whose estate numbers 21 restaurants across the UK and five globally in Qatar, Bangkok, Riyadh and Bahrain. The new restaurant will add to their current portfolio of restaurants across London which includes Alto by San Carlo, The Rooftop, Selfridges, Signor Sassi on Knightsbridge Green, Cicchetti Piccadilly and Covent Garden, San Carlo Regent Street St James’s and Fumo St Martin’s Lane.

Managing Director Marcello Distefano said: “We are very excited to have been able to acquire this site as it has been on our radar for a long time. St Christopher’s Place and the area surrounding it has been going through an amazing transformation over the past couple of years. We’re looking forward to bringing something new and exciting and will be revealing our plans in the coming weeks. Although London is very difficult at the moment, we believe it will come back stronger than ever.”

Tracey Pollard, Managing Director at Bruce Gillingham Pollard said “St Christopher’s Place has evolved in recent years to become a real food destination, with the likes of Hoppers, Homeslice, Flat Iron, Patty and Bun and Harry’s. This letting has further cemented the food credentials, as San Carlo create a bespoke concept  appealing to those coming to dine, as well as customers exploring the unique range of independent shops”
