Award-winning chef Aldo Zilli has designed a signature menu of family-favourite Italian dishes for the new Lucarelli Restaurant. With room for 60 diners, the renowned Italian restaurant Lucarelli’s (one of four that have opened in the last 12 months) will open to the public on 7th November 2022 on the iconic Fifth Floor at Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge. The new restaurant will be home to Italian celebrity chef Aldo Zilli who has designed new signature dishes with seasonal ingredients for the London launch.
Offering guests an authentic Italian terrace dining experience, Lucarelli Restaurant is founded by The SaSh Group, and in keeping with their heritage, all dishes on the menu use ingredients sourced directly from Italy. It is the perfect setting for families, ladies that lunch, business dining, and couples that want some intimate ‘amore’ time and casual dining. A flexible setting for every person and occasion.
The sophisticated interior is designed to bring Mediterranean alfresco dining to West London complete with an open kitchen. This allows diners to witness cookery theatre while mouth-watering aromas fill the authentic restaurant.
Dishes are inspired by different regions of Italy including bruschetta, signature seafood dishes, freshly made pasta, and risottos as well as pizzas topped with the finest delicacies.
Having previously designed menus for Lucarelli Restaurant’s Birmingham, West Bromwich, and Solihull locations, Aldo said: “In true Italian style, the SaSh Group have welcomed me to their family, so I am thrilled to see the fourth Lucarelli Restaurant opening is such an iconic London venue.”
From Nonna to Bambino, all generations are welcome to experience Lucarelli’s Italian cuisine. Seasonal menus are suited for the whole family, including vegan dishes, bottomless brunches, an ice cream counter, and a dedicated baby menu for those weaning.
Speaking of designing the menu, Aldo said: “I’ve been inspired by my loved ones to create a menu with some of my favourite dishes to serve when hosting family. Some of the recipes and methods have been passed on through generations of the Zilli family, so I’m thrilled to bring them from my family to our guests.”
Opening its first doors in 2021, Lucarelli Restaurant was a family-created dream born during the pandemic, after longing to share precious memories with loved ones over delicious meals. Head of the Sacco Family, Carmine Sacco said: “At Lucarelli Restaurants, we invite people to arrive as guests and leave as family. I believe food is a centerpiece of family time and we hope the time spent in our new London location becomes as important and special to our diners as it is in my family home.”
Iain Mackenzie, Store Director at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge, said “We are thrilled to be launching Lucarelli’s at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge, further reinvigorating our famous Fifth Floor. The new restaurant will offer the perfect lunch and dinner spot for customers whilst shopping in the store, to enjoy traditional Italian cuisine in a beautiful setting.”
