Meet our new Head Chef at il Pampero Carmine Giannino

We are excited to announce that Carmine Giannino is our new Head Chef at il Pampero.

Carmine started his career at 14, working in some of the most popular restaurants along the Ostia seafront in Rome including Shilling, Grif Restaurant and La Vecchia Pineta. Now aged 26, he leads the team as Head Chef at The Hari’s authentic Italian restaurant, il Pampero.

Having grown up in his parents’ restaurant, it was only natural that Carmine would find his feet in the kitchen following school. After working in Rome for 5 years, Carmine made what he describes as “the most important decision of his life” and picked up his bags to move to the UK in 2013, aged 19. He started his London career working at Novikov, under the direction of Head Chef, Marco Torri, and in 2016, Carmine joined il Pampero’s opening team as Sous Chef; he has never looked back.

Making His Mark

Synonymous with giving guests classic Italian cuisine at il Pampero, under Carmine’s leadership guests can look forward to the same traditional flavour combinations from a seasonal changing menu with a new twist of modern techniques. See some of Carmine’s new and exciting creations in our new a la carte menu.

Carmine’s Desert Island Meal

We asked Chef Carmine what his desert island menu would be…

Starter: Tough, perhaps a fish soup. I grew up by the sea and a love of fish never really leaves you.

Main: Penne Arrabiata, specifically my mum’s recipe. I could eat this all day, every day…

Dessert: Tiramisù, of course!

il Pampero is open for dinner every Friday and Saturday evening. To include us in your dinner plans this weekend, please contact us at or call 020 3189 4850. For more about il Pampero please click here.

If you can’t wait till Friday, you can enjoy a selection of il Pampero dishes on our bar and terrace menu. Receive 50% off all food and non-alcoholic beverages* every Monday to Wednesday until the end of September as part of The Eat Out To Help Out scheme.
