La Terrazza is the only restaurant in the world offering Marchesi’s most famous dishes—among them his ‘dripping’ di pesce, a tribute to Jackson Pollock; the delectable riso, oro e zafferano; 'open' ravioli, a deconstructed delight of scallops, ginger and butter; and 'the red and the black', a cool-but-spicy sauce contrasting with the warmth of monkfish in squid ink. Plus, you're sitting on what's probably the most beautiful terrace on Lake Como—awash in colour, its tables impeccably laid and lit by candles.
Where artistry has pride of place.
A cornerstone of the Marchesi tradition has always been stunning presentation—dishes that are as beautiful as the cucina itself is world-class. The master often said that ultimate quality was everything: not just the quality of natural, seasonal flavours, but the aesthetic quality of the dining experience... the joy of the art he created on every plate.
A legacy found nowhere else
Rare is the star of modern Italian cuisine who doesn’t claim inspiration from the great Gualtiero Marchesi. The first chef in Italy to ever gain three Michelin stars, his made an art of alta cucina. Our Executive Chef, Osvaldo Presazzi, worked shoulder to shoulder with Marchesi; today, he keeps that heritage and spirit alive with his team.
Dinner from 7.30pm to 10.30pm
