L’Osteria Ready for UK Expansion

Lewis Craig are delighted to be representing L’Osteria with their UK expansion plans. L’Osteria is a reasonably priced casual dining experience serving exceptional pizza and pasta.

The plan is to establish the first restaurant in Central London offering 5,500/7,500 sq ft, ideally providing for 150/200 covers along with a bar area. Future expansion will be in major cities and university towns across the UK.

L’Osteria is a well established brand in mainland Europe, opening their first restaurant in 1999 and currently operating 45 restaurants across Germany and Austria.

L’Osteria will be owned and operated by L’Osteria UK (a joint venture between Prashant ‘Pru’ Naik and L’Osteria Austria). Managing Director and owner, Pru Naik, brings to L’Osteria’s management team over 30 years of experience in the hospitality and restaurant industry.

Pru has successfully led businesses ranging from logistics to multi-unit restaurants. Until recently, Mr. Naik owned and operated 25 McDonald’s restaurants in Central and West London, making him the largest McDonalds UK franchisee.
