Like the famous Riva boats, this restaurant shows the perfect balance between luxury, comfort and timeless elegance. A former shoe shop in downtown was transformed into an italian restaurant serving classic italian cuisine freshly prepared.
The architect Caroline Dippold and her team designed this restaurant with a new opulence using classical and true materials such as metro tiles, terrazzo flooring and brass, combined with original furniture pieces of the 60ies and 70ies. Italo Design at it’s best.
Warm leather seatings in the centre, marble surfaces, brass table tops and the special wooden wall covering are accented by various light fixtures which create an environment of softly shimmering light. The original ceiling of this location, made of concrete, is acting as a perfect contrast to the concept.
The dynamic energy of the open kitchen – la “Cucina” – provides an unique dining experience for everybody on top. With slim wall mirrors all over the place and at the back-bar, reflecting the location and the guests, it seems to become also a perfect spot for aperitivo and people watching.
