"The Fenice" restaurant offers an elegant and comfortable setting thanks to a skilled restoration work of an ancient 1800 manor farm. Throughout the wide glass walls you can look at the green garden park of Villa Carlotta Hotel. Wood and steel give a blend of warmth and modernity in a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere. From the restaurant we reach a wine cellar obtained by a natural cave that contains roughly 900 labels of national and international wines. Claudio Ruta's creative cooking and the impeccable service create an excellent union of inspiration and expertise, so that each meal meeting turn to an unforgettable moment, all under the watchful eye and leadership of Mauro Malandrino
