From the undulating Lecco hills of Brianza, a relentless stream of marvellous flavours flow from the kitchen of the Pierino Penati restaurant that talks about strong, robust culinary traditions. For more than seventy years, the location has seen the turnover of three generations personified today by chef Theo and papa Piergiuseppe, in charge of the dining room. A story about gastronomy and hospitality, lived like a theatrical play, with dialogues between the past and present, reinterpreting dishes with an eye on enhanced healthiness without having to forego the flavour. The menu of the day and the permanent menu describe sublime culinary journeys which gourmets are unlikely to forget, immersed in a charming setting: the cosy, familiar atmosphere, framed by the windowed perimeter providing stunning views over the borders of the Po Valley as far as the Ligurian Apennines, the garden with its aromatic plants and herbs and the appealing, mirrored dining room on the first floor. This dimension of Italian savoir faire opens its doors to the world with the Cape Town project: the South African restaurant where Theo Penati’s recipes and the noblest of Italian ingredients are graciously served at table.
