Authentic Italian restaurant Il Baretto is set to open its premier international location in Riyadh this month on the 19th of November 2021.
The London-born restaurant’s new venue will be the first restaurant and dining experience in the King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD), marking the launch of an exciting new chapter within the heart of the Kingdom’s financial center.
Spanning across 1.6 million square meters, KAFD is an award-winning smart city that serves as a local, regional and financial regional hub. Home to some of the Middle East’s most exclusive office and residential addresses, KAFD is an internationally recognized authority for sustainability and a dynamic destination for business and entertainment.
Co-founded by restaurateurs Arjun Waney of Zuma, Roka, Coya, LPM, and The Arts Club, and Giuliano Lotto of Zafferano, Memory of China and Aubergine, Il Baretto is renowned for its simple and authentic Italian menu which draws influence from the specialty dishes and regional Italian produce. Launched in partnership with prominent Saudi restaurateur Mohammed Jawa, who holds over 18 years of experience within the local market, Il Baretto Riyadh, together with his forthcoming launches within the district, which are set to include Zuma, Amazonico, Mr. Chow, Aok, and Black Tap, plays a pivotal role in the development of KAFD.
The brand’s Riyadh location will showcase Il Baretto’s complete gastronomical offering. The menu includes a curation of Italian favorites as well as modern classics such as Veal Milanese, Whole Seabass, Lobster Linguine, Salmon Carpaccio, and wood-fired northern Italian pizza.
Il Baretto Riyadh merges signature design elements from its Marylebone location with contemporary influences inspired by KAFD; presenting a charming new interior concept that pays homage to its inaugural role as the district’s first restaurant. Il Baretto Riyadh will accommodate guests within the restaurant’s main dining area as well as on an elegant outdoor terrace; offering a relaxed Italian gastronomical experience that reinterprets the warmth and charm of its London flagship venue.
Il Baretto Riyadh will open its doors on November 19th, 2021, and reservations for the restaurant are now open via 920012508
