Alba restaurant aims to bring a taste of Amalfi to Knightsbridge

Alba restaurant aims to bring Amalfi to Knightsbridge

Updated 21/6/24 with new opening date

Just in case you were thinking that London may have just reached Italian restaurant saturation, a new restaurant is banking on the fact that the city's desire for lovely Italian food is always a thing. Alba is a new Italian restaurant in Knightsbridge, opening right opposite Harrods, that's on a mission to bring a little bit of the Amalfi Coast to London.

In charge of getting that across with the look of the restaurant is architecture and design studio, Yodezeen, who will be filling the space with real citrus trees. We also like the idea that the furniture is coming from a company that specialises in yacht design - that's so Knightsbridge.

As for the menu, the focus will be on the south coast of Italy, but they'll take in the whole country when it comes to produce. So you can expect mozzarella zizzona from Campania (Google it if, like us, you'd never heard of it - it looks crazy!) and Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosso from Reggio Emilia.

Promised for that menu are risotto con gamberi & lemon alongside Sicilian gamberi rossi di Mazara. And, of course, given the name they have to include some white Alba truffle which they'll be adding to their paccheri. Given that we're in Knightsbridge high-end territory here, they also say to expect plenty of caviar, truffle, wagyu and yellowfin tuna on the menu.

As for dessert, there will be pannetone tiramisu, and they'll be serving their gelato tableside, so we're hoping for a roaming gelato trolley. Wine will also be a big focus - they'll have their own bespoke cellar - and yes, they will have a negroni or two on the cocktail menu.
