Classic Italian and wonderful dinner with razor sharp display of cooking skills
For decades a family run upscale hotel with a 3 Michelin star restaurant. We were fortunate enough to be able to have lunch here. The scenery of the garden the interior of the foyer area and the restaurant all are remakable beautiful. Attention to all detailes from the flower decoration to the mirrors and antiquities are breathtaking.
The menu is the essence of the great Italian culinary traditions. Some of the dishes had been on the menu for 50 years. Our choice was a`la carte and we had sampled some of the iconic food creations. Foie gras variations, seefood risotto, pasta paccheri and the largest (elephant ear) veal Milanese. All tasted havenly, presented beautifully. Words can`t describ the depth flavors and the complexity of the whole experience.
Never ever happened before that we couldn`t make it to the dessert or cheese selection in a Michelin starred restaurant. This time we were so full that only one of us could enjoy coffee and petit four.
It costs a fortune but worth every cent. Next time we make sure to stay few days in the hotel, so we can work our way through the menu
