Sereno Hotels is proud to announce a new partnership with decorated Milan restaurateur and Michelin star chef, Andrea Berton, to lead the hotel’s signature restaurant, Ristorante Berton Al Lago. Urquiola has seamlessly used the same local stones seen in the facade of the hotel to create the impressive restaurant tables. Creative uses of the traditional Venetian Terrazzo and Travertine stone are found throughout- establishing a rich tradition of authenticity. The restaurant has a large outdoor terrace right on the lake, in addition to a section that is built over the water. At the center, is a dramatic and intricate stairwell, solidifying the restaurant as a visual experience as well as a culinary one.
The lake with its fish and aromatic herbs, the mountains of Valtellina known for its incredible wines, cheeses and meats, and the nearby Pianura Padana, known for its risotto and other fantastic ingredients, are all incorporated in a tribute to the rich and diverse area. At the helm of Ristorante Al Lago, Chef Berton presents modern Italian cuisine in a relaxed yet refined atmosphere for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
With more than 27 years of industry experience, Chef Berton is a celebrated and respected restaurateur who has won four Michelin stars across three restaurants in Milan. Berton is currently chef and patron of his newest namesake Ristorante Berton in the futuristic area of Milan, Porta Nuova Varesine, in addition to being owner and consultant of Milan Restaurants: Pisacco Ristorante e Bar and DRY Cocktail & Pizza. Berton promises to deliver “Italian dishes that are enhanced with a modern twist”.
