Frescobaldi, London

B3 Designers introduced a refreshed look to the popular Ristorante Frescobaldi, London


B3 Designers recently refurbished Ristorante Frescobaldi in Mayfair, London. In partnership with the Good Food Society and the famed Frescobaldi family, B3 sought inspiration from the family’s centuries-old history and patronage of fine wine. The design team worked to bring a refreshed look to the ground floor, basement, and al-fresco dining areas of the restaurant.

Main Restaurant Floor


On the ground floor, we shifted focus to the ceiling, exaggerating it with abundant hanging foliage interspersed with hanging pendants.


To evoke an Italian reminiscence, new rattan furniture was introduced, and the banquette seating was reupholstered.


The overall lighting was redone to be ambient, complemented by calming table lamps. 

Al fresco dining

New furniture, planting, and parasols were picked for the restaurant’s expanded outdoor area to enable an increased seating capacity. 

Stained Glass Feature


The most significant new feature introduced was the floor-to-ceiling stained glass window representing the Frescobaldi family tree. 


Designed in-house by B3, the tree dominates the staircase wall, every leaf telling a story of the brand’s rich legacy.

Basement Redesign

The basement of the restaurant needed to serve as an overflow space, as well as an exclusive private dining room. B3 reworked the layout for more efficient use of space, dark-stained the existing timber, added wine displays to create a separate private dining sphere, and enclosed existing shelves with glass. New ambient lighting, low-level lighting on tables, and brass details were introduced to elevate the mood. The furniture was refreshed to allow flexibility for tables to fit together into a long communal table for parties.
