A new high-end Italian restaurant is heading to Mayfair. This time, it’s the turn of Il Gattopardo, a restaurant that they say is inspired by 1960s Italy.

It’s got something of a pedigree, however, coming from the same restaurant group that brought us Bar De Pres, Zuma, Roka and Amazonico, so we’re going to assume this will be a no-expense-spared launch.

It’s early days on the news front, so all we know right now is that we can expect Italian classics and modern interpretations of dishes from across Italy, with a focus on Sicily, Amalfi and the Southern Isles. The Executive Chef is Massimo Pasquarelli, who’s worked with Alain Ducasse in the past and comes via the Ritz Carlton Singapore. We’ll have more news on his menu closer to the opening date.

Also worth noting is that there will be a hidden courtyard terrace with a fully retractable roof which sounds like it’ll be where you’ll want to grab your table.
