High-end restaurant group Good Food Society is to open an Italian caffè, bar and restaurant on London’s Baker Street next week.

Caffè Cinquanta, which launches on 8 May, will offer ‘timeless and classic Italian cooking’ with a fully Italian staff on hand to help diners with their choices.

Breakfast options will consist of pastries and fresh coffee, while the main menu will feature freshly made pasta dishes and a daily specials board.

Signature dishes are set to include rigatoni alla carbonara; spaghetti pomodoro con la n’duja; zucchini trombetta (Italian courgettes); and carciofi e fava (artichoke with fava beans).

A drinks menu will offer a range of Italian cocktails such as negroni; Aperol spritz; and espresso Martini.

The restaurant will seat 84 covers within its 1950’s-themed dining room, with space for an additional 10 diners at the bar and a terrace seating area.

Good Food Society was created by former Lehman Brothers vice-president Sanjay Nandi and Turkish restaurateur Levent Büyükugur in 2013.

It currently operates Ristorante Frescobaldi in Mayfair and Aegean-inspired bar and restaurant Hovarda in Soho.

Its new concept Playa Bar is set to launch on the site formerly occupied by its Turkish grill Yosma, which it plans to open in a new location following its closure in January.
