Restaurant Signor Sassi

This project hails from London where the restaurant has been in business since 1984, and is often visited by Rhianna, Lionel Richie, and Tom Jones. The interiors of the branch at St. Regis Gardens pay homage to the villas of Lake Como: lots of greenery, mirrors, handblown vases, and even a fountain. The menu is full of classical dishes from different regions of Italy (although the southern part dominates), lots of seafood, and desserts, including a homemade tiramisu. The service is pointedly strait-laced, but by the end of your lunch or dinner, the waiters will practically become your friends. In the evenings, there are DJs and live music.
