C’Alice, an Italian restaurant and wine bar from a husband-and-wife team from contrasting parts of Italy, is to launch in London’s Fulham in May.

London-based Alice Ravelli and Giovanni Di Stefano have roots in the north and south of Italy respectively, and are to launch the 40-cover restaurant – pronounced ‘kah-lee-che’ after the Italian word for ‘chalice’ and Ravelli’s first name ‒ alongside wine expert and Alice’s younger brother, Michele.

The site on Munster Road will serve a range of dishes and wine choices from across both north and south Italy, served by the glass and the bottle, plus Prosecco-based cocktails and sweet aperitif wines.

The menu, created by chef Carla Murgioni, will include specialities such as Capesante al Pompelo (pan-fried scallops in grapefruit juice); Risotto de Giorno (Risotto of the day); Salmone special dello chef in crosta di papavero (Chef ‘s special poppy seed roasted salmon served in a sweet beetroot puree); and desserts such as homemade tiramisu and mixed gelati.

The site will also offer a selection of wine tasting evenings, as part of the overall restaurant strapline of ‘wine, food, talk’.

Ravelli, who has a background in fashion design, has also helped with the interior décor, working with architect Maurizio Balistreri to create a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere.
