Italian restaurant group San Carlo has partnered with Sunset Hospitality Group (SHG) to open Signor Sassi in Dubai in spring 2023.

Located in the five-star St. Regis Dubai Hotel on The Palm, the 312-cover site will be the third international outpost for the brand, alongside Qatar and Riyadh.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Sunset Hospitality Group – we’ve been looking for a partner in Dubai that shares our passion for delivering the best contemporary hospitality concepts for several years," says Marcello Distefano, managing director at San Carlo Restaurants. "SHG are leaders in their category, and we’re excited to be working together to create a truly exceptional dining experience for Dubai.”

Sunset Hospitality runs hotels, day clubs, nightclubs and restaurants across the Middle East and also operates the SushiSamba and Black Tap burger restaurant groups.

“We are delighted to partner with San Carlo Restaurants, who share a passion for great food, style, and service. Signor Sassi has been an icon of the London culinary scene, renowned for its famous clientele, superb Italian menu, and signature dishes," says Antonio Gonzalez, CEO at Sunset Hospitality Group. "Bringing this authentic concept to Dubai’s culinary scene is another milestone for Sunset Hospitality Group and a great addition to our award-winning dining venues.”

San Carlo Restaurants is owned by the Distefano family, with 26 restaurants across the UK, mostly in London and Manchester, and seven international venues.

The portfolio includes the brands San Carlo, Cicchetti, Fumo, Isola and Gran Café as well as flagship site Alto by San Carlo on the rooftop of Selfridges London.

The group has further openings planned for 2023.
