Big Mamma defines maximalism with Jacuzzi, Kensington

Big Mamma’s fourth Italian restaurant, Jacuzzi, welcomes diners to an interior heavily influenced by the renaissance and Venetian villas.

Jacuzzi is Big Mamma Group’s first West London opening with a 170-seat ‘pleasure palace’ on Kensington high street. Designed by the restauranteurs in-house team, Studio Kiki, the Italian restaurant features a palazzo, and three floors crammed full of Italian relics including Roman statues and Murano glass ornaments. 

The experience begins in an alabaster-walled dining room fitted with backlit shelves carrying the weight of 1,000 bottles. In the centre of the room an impressive lemon tree and canopy spreads across a stucco double-height ceiling, embellished with a Murano glass chandelier hanging above a spiraling marble radial floor. Twisted ivy, red banquettes, exposed brick arches and marbled windows further add to the restaurant‘s grandeur. 

A grand, illuminated staircase leads to Italy’s largest island, Sicily. Situated on a mezzanine level, the space has been designed to transport guests to a ‘sunshine terrazza by the sea’. A marble bar sits below a retractable glass ceiling, fitted to flood the room with light. The resemblance to an Italian courtyard is heightened with the scattering of Sicilian pots and verdant greenery, surrounding tables tucked away in balcony-style alcoves.

On Jacuzzi’s third and final floor guests are welcomed to a plush seating area bedecked with a trellised boudoir, green velvet material, marble flooring and plinths. Murals of Italy’s great fashion icons adorn the walls, and a blossoming tree acts as a centrepiece.
