The Al Abraaj Restaurants Group introduces the popular UK-based Italian sharing concept, San Carlo Cicchetti, to Bahrain. The restaurant is part of the award-winning San Carlo Group, which has brought London favourites, like Signor Sassi, to food aficionados.
San Carlo Cicchetti (pronounced chi-KET-tee) reinterprets the delightful Venetian culinary custom of cicchetti – delicious small plate dishes to share with friends and family. Known to be somewhat of a celebrity haunt throughout the UK, the eatery has become a staple for authentic, Italian food that tastes great.
Located at Al Aali Complex in the Seef district, the restaurant has a sophisticated yet relaxing interior, with an emphasis on light colours alongside large expanses of white Italian marble clad with brass accents and lush greenery. The restaurant is set over two floors and can seat approximately 170 guests at a time.
The menu philosophy at San Carlo Cicchetti is to use only the finest and freshest seasonal ingredients, many of which are flown in from produce markets across Italy to ensure authenticity. The concept of cicchetti, a first to the Kingdom, encourages guests to sample and share multiple dishes between groups in order to experience a little bit of everything – from antipasti and salads to fresh pasta, pizza and grills.
With three decades of serving traditional Middle Eastern and international flavours to Bahrain’s dynamic food and beverage market, Al Abraaj remains one of the most popular restaurants offering traditional flavours and unique experiences to diners. Al Abraaj Restaurants Group is diversifying its portfolio with exciting new culinary concepts across the Kingdom. The group currently serves Bahrain through its 37 outlets.
These include branches of Al Abraaj, Al Bindaira Cafes, Mashawi Al Abraaj, Nu Asia, Lumee Street Cafes, TCBY Frozen Yogurt and Otto. Additionally, the group operates a dedicated catering division, which includes buffet and outdoor catering facilities for private events, and employs over 1,000 people across its restaurant and catering divisions. Al Abraaj prides itself on successfully combining heritage with modern innovations in taste and concepts.
