New manager of Lawns Restaurant aims for Michelin Star

Cosimo - new Restaurant Manager
Cosimo, manager of The Lawns Restaurant Wirral

Cosimo joins The Lawns – Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa’s 3 AA Rosette restaurant – after two years as a restaurant manager at the popular San Carlo in Liverpool city centre.

With more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality sector, 44-year-old Cosimo has worked in a range of leading hotels, restaurants and cruise lines across Europe. He is aiming to help bring a Michelin Star to The Lawns, which is regarded as one of the top fine dining restaurants in the region.

Cosimo, from Higher Bebington, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity as The Lawns has built a reputation as an excellent restaurant. I am used to working in high-end venues but feel that this is another step up. I hope that as restaurant manager I can use my experience and expertise to further improve The Lawns and strengthen its standing as one of the best restaurants in Wirral, Merseyside and the North West.”

Originally from the Italian town of Pavia, south of Milan, Cosimo moved to the UK in his early twenties to forge a career in hospitality.

He said: “It has been a fantastic journey that has brought me to The Lawns, starting when I moved to London to take a job at the Selsdon Park Hotel. From there I moved into cruise lines, working for Princess Cruises on their famous ‘Love Boat’ and then spending six years on the QE2 where I worked my way up to the role of Head Wine Steward.

“It was on the QE2 that I actually met my wife Helen, who is from the Wirral. Since moving back to the North West I have worked in the Chester Grosvenor, was general manager of Kuki’s in West Kirby and then moved to San Carlo.

“San Carlo was a different type of restaurant – very busy with lots of covers, always looking to get large numbers of people in and out. The Lawns is much more focused on quality and the fine dining experience of our customers. We aim to give the best customer service, be attentive to our guests and provide expert knowledge of our food and drinks menus.

“This is a great team – from the kitchens to front of house – and everyone has been very welcoming.”

Geoff Dale, Thornton Hall Hotel & Spa General Manager, said: “We were delighted when Cosimo agreed to join us as he has such a depth of experience and knowledge of the restaurant industry – particularly in Wirral and the North West.

“The Lawns will continue to go from strength to strength with Cosimo on board and we share the same vision of creating a restaurant which is known far and wide for its food and fine dining experience.”
