GPE announces San Carlo Group signs lease for Cicchetti at 172-173 Piccadilly, SW1

GPE announces that San Carlo, the award-winning restaurant group specialising in contemporary Italian dining, has signed a lease for a new Cicchetti at 172-173 Piccadilly. The restaurant will anchor GPE’s Piccadilly estate, providing the brand’s signature Italian food offering to local office customers, tourists, and Londoners alike.

This new site will replace San Carlo’s existing Cicchetti restaurant at 215 Piccadilly and will double in size, occupying 7,000 sq ft over ground and basement floors – across two units at 172 and 173 Piccadilly. Located in the heart of St. James’s within London’s West End district, the new restaurant will form part of the Grade II listed Piccadilly Arcade, which is within a short walking distance to Green Park and Piccadilly tube stations. 

San Carlo was founded in 1992 in Birmingham and is owned by Parent Company Harnbury Holdings Ltd. The restaurant group currently trades from 24 sites across the UK, seven of which are within London including Alto by San Carlo at the rooftop, Selfridges, Isola by San Carlo in St Christopher’s Place, Fumo on St Martin’s Lane, Signor Sassi and San Carlo Cicchetti restaurants in Covent Garden and Knightsbridge; international sites are located in Qatar, Riyadh, Jeddah, Bahrain and Bangkok with Miami and Dubai opening soon.

We are delighted to announce that San Carlo has chosen to open a larger Cicchetti restaurant within our GPE portfolio. We are confident it will complement our wider retail offering, in one of London’s most dynamic districts. The new restaurant will add to our standout office and retail offering, providing an ideal all-day dining destination for all our customers.

We’re excited to confirm that we will launch our new flagship site in London Piccadilly later this year. This is an important milestone for the San Carlo Group, as we look to expand our restaurant sites across the capital. Over the years, we’ve scaled up our restaurant group both in the UK and internationally, and this new larger site will mean we can continue to cater to increased demand from Londoners and tourists alike.
