Ritorno celebrates the elegant lifestyle of Milan where gathering to enjoy great food, complemented by fine wines and cocktails in chic yet informal surroundings, is central to the city’s way of life.

On the perennially fashionable King’s Road in Chelsea, Ritorno takes guests on a journey around Italy with its menu of authentic small plates and exceptional cocktails, all made with exacting attention-to-detail using the finest, freshest Italian produce.

With its jewel-box interior inspired by mid-century modern Italian design and wrap-around terrace simply made for al fresco drinking and dining, Ritorno brings the Milanese baretto tradition to the heart of London.

People Behind Ritorno

“At Ritorno we offer something unique to London. With our Milan-meets-Chelsea experience, every guest who walks through the door experiences a little piece of Italy” Giulio Giannini.

Every bartender has their own way of doing things and you improve over time. Bartenders call it ‘sprezzatura’ – a certain lightness of touch, a nonchalance that makes what you’re doing look and feel natural. It’s in everything you do, how you pour, how you stir…and you learn from your mistakes what works and what doesn’t.
