Alto by San Carlo


Alto by San Carlo is one of London’s most iconic dining destinations; an exclusive Italian restaurant and rooftop sanctuary with a stunning al fresco terrace and bar, perched atop one of the world’s most prestigious department stores – Selfridges, London.


One of the finest late-night restaurants in London, Alto opens until late seven days a week, ensuring the good times continue long after the store has closed


The escape to Alto by San Carlo begins at our exclusive lift within Selfridges. Guests exit to discover an enchanting floral and foliage-laden little Italy, high in the sky.


But Alto isn’t just one of the best spots for al fresco dining in London. With a fully retractable roof, our main restaurant and bar is open all year round, so you can dine under the sun or stars come rain or shine, seven days a week. Guests can enjoy food, cocktails and fizz surrounded by and beneath a canopy of beautiful florals.


Outside, our beautifully landscaped terrace and bar offers full table service with uninterrupted views of the London skyline.


Whether you’re looking for a spectacular setting for your next weekend celebration in London; planning an upscale lunch and Italian coffee on the go; or dinner, cocktails and fizz with loved ones, this is the perfect setting. The Alto menu offers up delicious Italian food that’s designed to be shared, and we use only the finest ingredients, treating them with respect and allowing them to shine.
