History of Cecconi’s

Enzo Cecconi, the youngest-ever general manager of the famous Cipriani in Venice, opened Cecconi’s in London in 1978.

For the first time, Londoners were able to order fresh pasta, beef carpaccio, tiramisu, rocket, and Bellini cocktails. Enzo Cecconi believed in spectacular food and spectacular service, bringing theatre into the restaurant by finishing dishes in front of his guests’ eyes.

Cecconi’s was an overnight success and became a magnet for celebrities and royalty. But in 1999, after 21 years under the ownership of Enzo Cecconi, Cecconi’s closed. A year later, Hani Farsi took over the restaurant and refurbished it completely.

In February 2004, it reopened under joint management with Nick Jones of Soho House as a partner. In January 2005, Soho House took full ownership of Cecconi’s and now there are restaurants around the world – from Miami to Mumbai.
