The last 12 months for Cin Cin have been like no other. We’ve all faced challenges we had never imagined but thankfully we’ve also found a depth of strength and cohesion we did not know we had within us. Throughout it all, you have supported and sustained us here at Cin Cin in a way that we will always be thankful for. Because of that support, we have come back stronger than ever, and we have been reminded on a weekly basis why we love working in hospitality. So, as we prepare to welcome you back to Western Road in a few weeks’ time, we are very excited to finally announce that Cin Cin is coming to London!
Jamie and I will be opening the first Cin Cin London this Spring, a small and intimate neighbourhood Italian restaurant in Fitzrovia. With 20 seats inside and 20 plus outside on a south facing corner with lots of afternoon sun, it’s perfect for alfresco dining this Summer. Jamie has already written an amazing opening menu that will build on the Cin Cin classics you have come to know and love, as well as some new dishes we’ve been testing out between running our At Home delivery service week to week.
It’s a big step for Team Cin Cin and it seems we won’t be getting much sleep this year! But all your love and support over the last year has made us feel positive about the year to come so thank you again from the bottom of our pasta beating hearts! We’ll release more details when we can so stay tuned here, tell your friends and follow our journey!

Join us for an online wine tasting event on Friday 26th March at 7pm, featuring four wines from Planeta, a producer with five wineries placed in all the corners of Sicily.
Penny Murray (Planeta), David Toscano (Cin Cin) and Toby (Enotria) will take your wine palate on a journey around the regions of Sicily and the vineyards of Planeta.
For five centuries and through seventeen generations, the Planeta family have been involved with the course of agricultural evolution in the complex land of Sicily.
“Sicily is like a baby continent, and there is such an array of different terroirs, climates and altitudes. This means we can make wines that are fresh, light and fruity like Frappato, beautiful aromatics like Terebinto, wines full of volcanic minerality like Etna Bianco, rich wines like Santa Cecilia and also wines from historical areas, like Capo Milazzo where the Mamertino DOC comes from, wines with documented evidence that goes back to the period of Julius Caesar” – Penny from Planeta
The evening will feature four stunning wines, two red and two white.
The session will start at 7pm with an introduction from David, Toby and Penny. They’ll introduce some basics of wine tasting, talk you through four wines, and answer any questions at the end of the session.
An insight into Planeta’s chosen white wines will kick off the tasting session.
At 8pm you will enjoy a break to prepare some food, hopefully your pre ordered CIN CIN At Home meal!
Whilst enjoying your meal you will be guided through the selection of red wines.
There will be a live Q&A at the end of the tasting session.
An informative, relaxed, fun session perfect for any level of wine knowledge.
