La Tagliata has secured a site in Fitzrovia for its second UK restaurant.

The Italianchain will take two adjacent units on the corner of Whitfield Street and Grafton Way, formerly leased to Sardo Cucina and Sardo respectively.

The new restaurant, which is due to open at the beginning of November, will comprise 1,550 sq ft on the ground floor level and 1,800 sq ft in the basement, with space for 60 covers in the restaurant and 23 at a wine bar serving an alternative menu.

Designed by Italian owners Lorenzo and Carlo, the intimate interior will reflect that of a classic Italian villa, featuring a series of separate rooms and original contemporary artwork to make guests feel at home and to replicate the ambience of first La Tagliata restaurant in the City.

Translated as ‘the cut’, La Tagliata’s name is a nod to the brand’s signature dish of sliced sirloin steak on a bed of rocket, tomatoes and parmesan shavings with a balsamic glaze.  This will be the brands second location, following their debut site in Spitafields.

Shelley Sandzer acted for La Tagliata. Etai Page at the leisure advisory firm said: “We are thrilled to have acquired this superb corner location in one of London’s most vibrant dining scenes for our client. Shelley Sandzer has a track record of helping independent brands develop their portfolio in London and we are pleased to act in this capacity once again. The popular area of Fitzrovia boats an impressive tenant mix, and we are confident that La Tagliata will feel right at home.”

The directors at La Tagliata, Carlo and Lorenzo, added: “Shelley Sandzer fully understood our needs and utilised their expert knowledge of the area and the industry to secure this sought-after spot for our second restaurant. At La Tagliata we have a desire to offer the true taste of Italy in an intimate, homely setting, and we are thrilled to expand and continue this in such a fantastic location.”
