The Chefs

Marcello Garetti took his first steps in a number of historic Milanese restaurants. After 5 years, moved by a great passion for cooking, he decided to gain experience in the world of fine dining and moved first to Forte dei Marmi, to the Lux Lucis restaurant (with 1 Michelin star), and then to Davide Oldani’s D’O restaurant (with 2 Michelin stars) where he stayed for 4 years. Marcello loves straightforward cuisine with few frills, dictated by a ‘balance of taste contrasts’.
