A second Manicomio Italian restaurant has opened in London. Manicomio Gutter Lane, which is located behind Gresham Street and close to St Paul’s Cathedral, opened earlier this month. Owners Ninai and Andrew Zarach, already run one Manicomio in Chelsea's Duke of York Square, King's Road. The couple, who also run Machiavelli the top-end Italian food and drink importing company, were provided with funding for their latest venture by the Royal Bank of Scotland. Ninai Zarach, co-founder of the Manicomio restaurants, said: “We are really excited about the new Manicomio and being in the heart of the city is a perfect location for us as we cater for breakfast, lunch and dinner so there is a good flow of business throughout the day.” Her husband Andrew Zarach added: “The launch has been very successful and in particular, the transformation at night of the café into the bar has been really effective. We also turnaround the Roundhouse, which caters for lunch during the day, into a lounge bar at night which is also available for private functions.” Jonathan Coates, relationship manager, commercial Banking at RBS, said: “It is clear to see that Ninai and Andrew are very passionate about Italian food and this comes across in their new restaurant. Its stylish interior is matched by the exquisite food and is synonymous to what we expect from the Manicomio name. We wish them every success for the future.” Manicomio Gutter Lane is housed in a minimalist three-storey building which has a ground floor café with takeaway facilities, a first floor restaurant, and the second floor Roundhouse Bar (named after the original Roman Roundhouse site on which the building sits).
