The Cuisine

Guided by Alessio Limonta, assisted by Kevin Taddeo, with the contributions of established chefs who enrich the cuisine with new experiences and flavors from time to time. The cuisine of Ristorante da Giovannino is developing a path starting from tradition through a careful and continuous research and culminating in innovative dishes, without substantially changing, but highly enriching the taste.

There are three important points on which we build our work:

• respect for nature
• respect for the product
• food culture

We are looking forward to have you trying our cuisine.
