A culinary journey through Italian classics

Caffe Ginori’s enticing menu is a creative reinterpretation of Italian classics with a modern twist. The lunch table setting features a mix and match of colors from the Oriente Italiano collection.

Once mixed at the table, a cream-colored beetroot risotto transforms into a vivid pink hue and is set against a complementary rose-colored print plate. Modern takes on classics such as Eggplant Parmigiana, Beef Carpaccio, Veal Ragù Tagliatelle, as well as entrée salads like the Insalata Lobster with frisée, endive, capers, and a lemon parsley emulsion are also available.
