Brighton-centric restaurateur Raz Helalat has recruited ex-Café Murano and Padella chef Mirella Pau to help him launch an Italian restaurant close to the seaside resort's North Laine area.

Expected to open in June, Tutto will be set in a ‘beautifully-restored’ 1930s former bank on Marlborough Place and will be inspired by ‘traditional Italian dining culture’ aiming to ‘bring together all of its best elements, focusing on simple quality and the Italian experience in equal measure’.

Born in Sardinia, Pau was head chef at Café Murano for four years before becoming head chef of Padella’s recently opened Shoreditch site. 

Menu details have yet to be released but there will be a focus on sharing and ‘simple, seasonal ingredients’. 

Open all-day, the restaurant will have 80-covers inside plus an additional 34 covers outside. 

The opening will take Helalat’s Black Rock Restaurants Group’s Brighton restaurant portfolio up to four. 

Helalat is among Brighton's most established and successful restaurateurs having launched the The Coal Shed in 2011 followed by The Salt Room in 2015. In 2017, he opened a London The Coal Shed at London’s One Tower Bridge development. 

His most recent project is bar restaurant Burnt Orange,​ which attracted two positive reviews in the national press as well as a Michelin Bib Gourmand.
