First opened in 1867, during the historical period of the Belle Époque and located in the world-famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Savini has been at the epicenter of the Milanese dining and cultural scene standing proudly for over 150 years in between the Duomo Cathedral and la Scala Theatre in the very heart of Milan.
Today, the Executive Chef of Savini is Matteo Gelmini, born near Brescia in 1983. He joined the restaurant in 2013 after many experiences in some of the most prestigious Italian and international establishments (such as Villa Fiordaliso in Gardone Riviera, Gualtiero Marchesi, Ristorante a La Palme D’Or in Cannes, Trattoria Toscana by Alain Ducasse.
For Matteo Savini is not only a brand, but more important a project that he continues to create and improve together with his team. The Chef pays particular attention to history and to the modern guests’ needs and integrates traditional flavours with innovative techniques. Each dish is an emotion of creative combinations, based upon simple flavours, with a total respect of the original ingredients.
“The passion for perfection always comes too late, sometimes a hundred years are not enough for certain enterprises, but it always manifests itself as a passion for poetry. In this place I met the one for the kitchen”.
E. Montale, poet
