Discovering LARTE, the fusion of fine Italian dining, art, fashion, design and culture.

LARTE is a new and original restaurant concept situated in the heart of Milan in via Manzoni 5, offering not just a top-quality restaurant but a complete Italian hospitality experience in which fine dining is served alongside the arts, fashion and design. A model example of Italian hospitality, this innovative meeting point expresses the absolute best of Italian lifestyle through a unique blend of fine cuisine and wines together with art, design, culture and fashion. The excellent food and drink are interpreted and delivered with effortless style, elegance and attention to detail.

Inspired by The Altagamma Foundation, which gathers together high-end Italian businesses with an international reputation for Italian enterprise, quality and prestige, LARTE was created through an entrepreneurial initiative by a group of well respected, leading businesses and partners from a variety of sectors: Alessi, Allegrini, Artemide, Bellavista, Baratti & Milano, Ca’ Del Bosco, Caffarel, Cantine Ferrari, Capri Palace Hotel, Feudi di San Gregorio, Illycaffè, Nonino, Federico Regalia, Sanpellegrino and Santo Versace. The collaboration represents an innovative alliance of Italian companies, combining forces to compete on the international stage. The project is spearheaded from Milan, in the building which was historically the home of the writer and poet Carlo Emilio Gadda; however, it is also being developed outside of Italy in order to share this unique model with the world, offering the authentic Italian cuisine and warm hospitality which the nation is famed for.

The format was designed and developed with the intention of bringing to life a unique, exclusive and multisensory experience for clients, capable of surprising, captivating and enthralling. LARTE simultaneously combines an original mix of Cafeteria, Cioccolateria, Hosteria, Restaurant, Art Gallery and Exclusive Boutique Shop all under the same banner, providing a truly distinctive location which captures the core theme of the project, ‘l’arte ne Larte’. Not just an expression of artistic beauty but also a demonstration of know-how, for which prestigious Italian companies are renowned, and of quality of lifestyle which is shared with guests through carefully selected, refined products.

LARTE is also a boutique shop “casa-bottega” offering artistic Italian products, a temporary exhibition space and theatre, boasting the most prodigious Made in Italy brands. Everything is presented with an artistic flair of “opera d’arte” which guests can admire, enjoy, share and remember. The exquisite fixtures and furnishings displayed at LARTE are all one-off pieces, created by the biggest names from the world of fashion and design; also available to purchase as an integral part of the exclusive shopping experience offered to clients.

Everything is to be admired and everything can be purchased: refined restaurant and exclusive shopping all wrapped into one.

LARTE’s high quality cuisine is entrusted to the professionals of Director Simone Pellegrini and Chef Daniele Scanziani.
