Fresh, light summer-inspired dishes joining the menu include the spectacular Crudi Assortiti sharing platter, taking inspiration from the cities of coastal Italy, where raw bars are very much on trend. With Yellowfin tuna tartare, salmon crudo, salmon carpaccio and two freshly shucked oysters, it’s ideal for enjoying on a summer day, alongside a specially selected glass of wine.

The pizzas too have been inspired by seasonal trends with new pizzas on the menu, such as the classic Prosciutto Crudo Al Tartufo, and the vegan Pizza Ortolana.

A welcome addition to the dessert menu will be Semifreddo, once described by the New York Times** as the ‘Ice Cream Family’s chic Italian cousin’. The classic dessert is popular amongst Italians and with searches for ‘Semifreddo’ increasing by 23 per cent in the UK this year, it is set to be the dessert of the summer.

Mark Window, group executive chef at Individual Restaurants, adds: “We’re excited to welcome guests this week to sample the mouthwatering dishes on our new summer menu.
