Introducing La Connessa

Acclaimed Bacchus Management Group has opened a new Italian restaurant, La Connessa, in San Francisco.

“Connessa” means “connected” in Italian, and the restaurant aims to be a modern version of a classic trattoria — a neighborhood spot to gather for special occasions or just drop in to connect over a drink and bite to eat.

Office was asked to create a visual identity system for La Connessa that would reflect this modern take on tradition. Using a slate blue and metallic gold palette, the logotype is inspired by Italian Art Deco typography, and a hand-drawn pattern resembles veining of Italian natural stone. We also created menus, coasters, matchboxes and to-go packaging that complement the beautiful, elevated vibe of the space that was designed by Stephen Brady of S.B. Brady Design and Left Coast Design.

La Connessa is one of three restaurants that Bacchus is opening in the Mason on Mariposa, a new luxury development at the base of San Francisco’s Potrero Hill. Office also developed the branding for the other two locations, Louie’s Original and Magic Donuts & Coffee.
