San Carlo Group is celebrating this month as it marks 23 years since the opening of its first restaurant – a humble 20-table San Carlo in Birmingham city centre.
Our family-run Italian business was founded with the launch of San Carlo in Temple Street on 23rd November 1992 and we are proud to now be a £50million empire, employing more than 1,000 people and boasting a portfolio of 16 restaurants across the UK. We also have international interests in Kuwait, Bangkok and, as of next month, Doha, Qatar.
Since opening its doors, our award-winning San Carlo Birmingham has served almost two million diners, including a host of celebrities and showbiz stars, and Chairman Carlo Distefano, admits he still can’t quite believe what a great success the business is.
San Carlo Birmingham is now a 132-cover restaurant and bar split over two floors. In 2012, the Group opened its second operation in Birmingham Fumo restaurant, cocktail bar and late lounge in Waterloo Street.
