Spent a most pleasant evening at this restaurant. Sommelier/waitress very competent with a good sense of humour. Food was excellent. Am tempted to return to try a particular dessert.

The Savino Angioletti’s “Orologio”, star of the Ticino restaurants since 1907, is a must for all the true lovers of food and drink. Always frequented by loyal traditionalists and experimenters of new tastes, is now a must even for some of the most famous contemporary artists and international musicians.

Pasta, risotto, meat and fish: the common denominator is the focus on the prime quality raw materials and the firings. Also the vegetarian and the vegan dishes, with an extensive menu reserved for those who love healthy cooking without meat or gluten free. The enveloping and soft colors of wood come together with a fresh, friendly, suitable place for quick lunches, business lunches and romantic dinners.
