This restaurant in the Italian Versailles, on the top floor of the Belvedere Tower in the Palace of Veneria near Turin, could have dined Kings and Princes of Italy without fear of embarrassment. The high-flown verses in the poems of Dolce Stil Novo which made many ladies sigh during their careful reading, have the same effect on the innovative dishes of chef Alfredo Russo. His restaurant is named after this poetic movement and is housed in an important UNESCO world-heritage site, perfect for those who love Romanticism and are passionate about history. Alfredo Russo takes his cue from the past (what else could he do in such a location?) but modernises, rebuilds and innovates, while making sure his dishes are always recognisable and his raw materials are always Italian, often local. A royal cuisine both in appearance and taste. A masterpiece in both architectural and culinary terms, just one step below the heavens, the restaurant enjoys stunning views over the gardens, the Corte d’Onore and the Fontana del Cervo (Deer Fountain) so that guests can appreciate culinary pleasures and the emotions of history.
