The Signor Sassi Story
Signor Sassi opened in 1984 and has since become one of the most famous Italian restaurants in London. Over the years it became famous for it’s original Italian food and atmosphere that is talked about around the world. Our guests come to Signor Sassi from all over the world, from Royalty, politicians and business leaders to sports stars, actors and music legends. It is the jewel in the crown of Italian restaurants.
Signor Sassi was acquired by Carlo Distefano in 2007. His decision to buy the restaurant was not purely a business decision but from a love for a restaurant he had been dining at for over 20 years. It now joins the successful group of San Carlo restaurants placed throughout the UK.
In 2008 a gentleman from Kuwait ate in the restaurant and fell in love with the food and ambience. He asked Carlo if he would be interested in franchising Signor Sassi in the Middle East. After that lunch the wheels were set in motion and on 9th September 200 Sassi opened in Kuwait City.
