Located inside the Bulgari Hotel in Milan, this beautifully designed ‘Il Ristorante’ offers a superb menu in wonderful surroundings which continues the elegance of the hotel throughout. The restaurant is quite intimate, it overlooks the bar area, and the atmosphere is sophisticated with an air of Italian charm. The service is of course exceptional, continuing the high standard of perfection that is found throughout the Bulgari Hotel.

We started our evening with an aperitif, I ordered a Bramble, this was a delightful cocktail with a fresh fruit hit, mixed with gin, lemon juice, sugar, and blackberry liqueur. My partner ordered a glass of Perrier Jouet Blason Rose, an elegant champagne with aromas of raspberries and strawberries.

To begin, I ordered the Red Prawns, with Stracciatella cheese, served on a bed of quinoa. The Stracciatella was delicate and flavoursome, and the red prawns had a brilliant deep red colour with a deep flavour. My partner ordered the Spaghetti with Piennolo tomatoes, a simple dish but nothing that leaves the kitchen at Il Ristorante is less than superbly presented and executed with huge flavour.

For my main course, I ordered the Pan Fried Turbot, served with the most delicious porcini mushrooms and yogurt. Turbot has a mild taste and this was brought to the forefront with the seasoning and preparation, a very satisfying dish. My partner ordered the Risotto, served with shavings of fresh truffle. Another impressive dish, packed with amazing flavours.

Moving on to dessert we shared a selection of pear, lemon and raspberry sorbet, along with two americano coffees. The sorbets were striking in flavour, the colours were vibrant, and were an excellent end to an evening of superb cuisine.

To drink, we enjoyed a bottle of 2012, Panzanello Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, Tuscany, Italy. An intense, ruby-red wine, with notes of cherries, plums, and violets. An interesting wine that pairs well with fish wonderfully.

The bar is set high at Il Ristorante, they deliver exceptional service, and each and every dish was executed with a level of care and attention which is a joy to experience.
