About IT London
This Ibiza hotspot has made its way over to London, unsurprisingly settling in Mayfair (in a former art gallery) for its debut UK location. IT is a multi-faceted venue, offering a bar, restaurant and private-dining options, as well as doubling up as a gallery space for young emerging artists.
The kitchen at IT London is headed up by chef Gennaro Esposito, who oversees the two Michelin-starred La Torre del Saracino restaurant on the Neapolitan coast. He’s known for combining southern Italian flavours with fine-dining techniques, which means you can expect to tuck into dishes such as nocellara olive soup with almond fennel purée and scabbardfish, alongside spaghetti pomodoro which is made with IT’s own Vesuvio tomato sauce.
The dish that’s most likely to catch your attention though (and probably end up on your Instagram feed) is the assemblage of seafood which is served inside a giant glass ball, and features red prawns, raw seabass and tuna. Other than that, you can also tuck into thin-crust pizzas (a speciality of the IT Ibiza brand), while sweet treats on the pudding menu include a traditional Neapolitan rum baba.
Unsurprisingly for a restaurant that made its name on the party island of Ibiza, IT London also serves an Italian-inspired weekend brunch on Sundays. Served all day, the brunch features plenty of pasta and carbs to help revitalise you from the night before, while a thumping soundtrack provided by a roster of live DJs will keep the party going for those who aren’t quite ready for the weekend to end.
Live music isn’t only found at weekend brunch though, as IT London is home to a number of live music events and parties which take place throughout the year. For Mayfair hotshots looking for something a little more exclusive though, there’s always the private-dining room (complete with a dramatic glass ceiling) where you can host your own soirée.
