Camillo Benso

OPENED 132 DAYS AGO

Milan’s fine dining destination Camillo Benso arrives in Mayfair.

Camillo Benso is the first overseas venture by F & C Group, who are behind Milan’s most sought-after celebrity spot Giannino, and the rapidly-expanding restaurant Camillo Benso. It doesn’t usually happen in this order, but New York is next on the list.

The Spot:

Camillo Benso is more than just a destination for dinner. A sleek cocktail bar welcomes you for aperitivo with drinks and small snacks, or another great Italian tradition: a glass of Amaro after dinner. There’s enjoyment in other forms too, including live music sessions that will transport you straight out of Mayfair to Milan.

The Food:

Helmed by chef Luigi Esposito – who perfected his skills under Michelin-starred master Antonino Cannavacciuolo – Camillo Benso focuses on traditional Italian cuisine. That means you’ll find plenty of pastas on the menu, made with nothing but top-quality ingredients from Italy, including spaghetti with fried courgettes, ravioli caprese and paccheri with ragù, alongside secondi dishes such as yellowfin tuna tartare with peach and avocado.

And if none of that tickles your fancy, there will always be pizza and bread, made with a special recipe by Niko Romito (of three Michelin-starred restaurant Reale). With so many Michelin stars involved in the execution of Camillo Benso, the bar is set very high…

The Drinks:

Talking of the “bar”, Camillo Benso serves Italian wines and cocktails.

The Damage:

Camillo Benso promises an upscale Italian meal without the hefty price-tag, a breath of fresh air in this area dotted with expensive dinner destinations.

In a Nutshell:

Next time you’re in need of Italian charm and sophistication, just head to Camillo Benso, where the food is just as upscale as the setting – and less expensive than a flight to Milan.
