The creative inspiration of Marc Lanteri originates in his intuition and instinct of the moment: everything is reinvented and reinterpreted by Marc using only local ingredients while respecting the rhythm of the seasons. The results are his amazing dishes, which give us a taste of emotion tied to the memory of the past and present made ​​by a great chef . In the dining room Amy Bellotti, sommelier by profession and vocation, is dedicated to the perfect combination of seasonal flavors and the fine wines of Piedmont.
