Renowned city chef Stuart Ralston opened tipo in March 2023, aiming to carry on the success of his other city ventures Aizle, Noto and Lyla. It quickly became a foodie favourite with its house-made pasta and soft serve proving popular.

It becomes the fourth restaurant by Ralston to feature in the Michelin Guide, with all three of his other venues in the capital already having earned spots.

Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guide, said: “It is a joy to see 20 restaurants newly awarded the Bib Gourmand in the 2024 edition of The Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland.
