Fodor's Review

If you are willing to shell out around €600 for a dinner for two and are gastronomically adventurous but not very hungry, then consider this quietly elegant restaurant that critics often rave about. Traditional Veneto recipes are given a highly sophisticated and creative treatment—traditional squid in its ink comes as a "cappuccino," in a glass with a crust of potato foam—while dishes such as sole with a grapefruit and curry sauce leave the Veneto far behind. Owner-chef Massimiliano Alajmo's creative impulses, together with seasonal changes, augment the signature dishes, but Alajmo considers food to be an art form rather than nourishment, so be prepared for minuscule portions. Reserve well in advance.
