Fodor's Review

Year after year this restaurant defends its position as one of Italy's most refined dining destinations, and heads of state, celebrities, and those with bottomless pocketbooks venture here to savor the fare. The majestic appointments complement chef Valentino Marcattili's wondrous creations, like his memorable uovo in raviolo San Domenico, in which a large raviolo is stuffed with a raw egg yolk—which miraculously cooks only a little, then spills out and mixes with Parmesan cheese, burro di malga (butter from an Alpine dairy farm), and sensational white truffles. The wine list impresses with more than 3,000 choices. In summer the restaurant open for lunch on weekends and Monday.
