Ciro Orsini, founder of Ciros Pomodoro, opened his first legendary restaurant in the Rock n Roll years of 1978 located at the Prime location of Beauchamp Place Knightsbridge London.
Which is situated just round the corner from the World famous Harrods.
Ciros Pomodoro is a perfect combination of Great Italian food, Image, High Energy, and of course the man himself, forming the nucleus of the very successful formula.
Backbone of the operation are the Coppola brothers (Ciro's nephews), Ciro jnr, and Antonio Coppola.
Ciro jnr c.e.o. has the unenviable task of handling all correspondence at the London head office, which comes from all branches of the Ciro pomodoro
Licensing , world wide, at the same time he is responsible for maintaining and running the Uk operations which consists of the Mother ship at Beauchamp Place.
Antonio Coppola, (President-in-chief) like Ciro is an Executive Chef, which is why he also oversees the development of all locations worldwide.
Antonio , like Ciro, travels the Planet, ensuring the Ciro Pomodoro brand is Vibrant and up to date ,in all aspects of the Ciro Pomodoro name.
Ciro's Pomodoro is expanding world wide and beyond, so if you hear that a Ciro's Pomodoro is opening on the moon, please remember our Motto (Expect the Unexpected)
Before we discuss the man, just a little information concerning the Name... Orsini.
If we tell you that Twelve Orsini men married twelve daughters of kings and Emperors, you might slightly begin to understand the man.
The Orsini were one of the most influential Italian noble families in medieval Italy. Members of the Orsini Family include 5 Popes...18 Saints...40 Cardinals
and numerous significant political and religious figures. The family can be traced back to the Middle Ages, and goes as far back as the Roman Period,
so the blood line is very long, and very strong.
So what of the Man himself Ciro Orsini its been said, they broke the mould once he was made....his drive and hunger for perfection as not been diminished by the passing years.
Nowhere is that more prominent than in his popular World wide restaurants, which span the Globe inviting not just Great food, but a particular brand of Neapolitan hospitality
that comes straight from the heart.
Ciro Orsini with his Neapolitan sense of humor and laughter, his healing and outgoing ways, has won the loyalty of some of the most talented and high profile clientele in the World.
Energy and Drive
The Atmosphere and Energy of a Ciro's Pomodoro restaurant and bar has been spoken of as unsurpassed
Part of that energy and drive that is Ciros Pomodoro, is also the best live music nightly, a steady stream of live music, musicians and singers from all over the world
regularly perform on stage keeping the atmosphere Live and Electric, and not only can you listen to live music, but if you feel so inclined, even perform yourself,
and if you're sitting and having a quiet meal and hear the dulcet tones of Ebony over Ivory, and think that actually sounds like Stevie Wonder playing live, don't be
surprised to find that it actually is the case, remember the Motto (Expect the unexpected)
