Canto Corvino, a 140-cover modern Italian restaurant and bar is now open in the heart of Spitalfields at 21 Artillery Lane. Canto Corvino, meaning song of the raven (a reference to the road’s former name, Raven’s Row), will be open seven days a week, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
Canto Corvino is the third restaurant from Andrew and Ninai Zarach, owners of the successful Manicomio restaurants in Chelsea and the City. Head chef Tom Salt is in charge of this exceptional new kitchen with Head of Operations, Michael Mayhew overseeing the front of house.
Award winning B3 Designers (Roka, Lima, Gymkhana and Bubbledogs) have created a sleek industrial interior, drawing on the warehouse aesthetic and trading heritage of the Spitalfields area.
The main restaurant dining area features a show kitchen with cut stone tiles in a bold triangular pattern to the front, allowing diners to view the chefs at work. The seating in the dining area includes stained oak top tables with brushed brass trims and a banquette with a cross-stitch pattern to the rear of the space.
