Big Mamma heads to Kensington for first West London restaurant`

Jacuzzi will be the group’s fourth London site and have 170 covers spread over four floors.

Housed in a former bank, the 4,000sq ft space will include a botanical mezzanine with retractable glass ceiling; alabaster walls; and stucco ceilings. 

The basement level will feature the group’s first ‘disco toilet’, complete with glitter ball and a ‘cove of mirrors’.

Jacuzzi’s menu will feature a typically indulgent selection of Italian dishes and include starters of cured ham from Onesto Ghiradi served with gnocchi fritti; burrata with fresh seasonal; and pizzette topped with truffle, caviar and bottarga.

Mains, meanwhile, will feature lobster risotto with half lobster, clams, red gurnard and cuttlefish; and a sharing plate of truffle pasta with fresh black truffle, truffle cream and parmigiano foam, which is prepared tableside in a 4kg wheel of pecorino.

Desserts will include a ‘decadent’ chocolate fondue for two made with half a kilo of Valrhona chocolate.

Big Mamma, which is run by Tigrane Seydoux and Victor Lugger, launched in the capital in early 2019 with the opening of the 172-cover Gloria in Shoreditch. This was followed up with the opening of 300-cover Circolo Popolare in Fitzrovia’s Rathbone Place, which also opened in 2019; and Ave Mario, which opened in Covent Garden last summer. 

The group also runs pizza delivery concept Napoli Gang, which has a single site in Ladbroke Grove.
