Oro Restaurant at Belmond Cipriani Awarded First Michelin Star. Launched in April 2014, Oro is headed-up by Executive Chef Davide Bisetto, who earlier in his career became the first Italian chef to gain two Michelin stars in France. Using the finest Italian ingredients to reinterpret the historic Venetian hotel’s gastronomic tradition, Bisetto expertly blends local flavours with influences from his culinary travels in dishes such as bigoli pasta with wedge clam and mullet roe, seaweed and preserved urchin.
Oro is designed by renowned interior designer Adam D Tihany. Reflecting the restaurant’s name, which means ‘gold’ in Italian, the main dining room sits under a domed gold leaf ceiling embellished with a stunning handmade Murano glass chandelier.
Located on the tip of Giudecca Island with unrivalled lagoon views, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is renowned for its exquisite interiors, acclaimed cuisine and the most fabulous swimming pool in the city. It is the third hotel in Belmond’s collection to be awarded a coveted Michelin star – MEE at Belmond Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil became one of the first restaurants in South America to receive the accolade in April 2015, while Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire retains its two stars for the 32nd year in 2016.
Belmond Hotel Cipriani reopens for the summer season on 17 March 2016. Prices start from £500 per night in a Double Garden View Room, including taxes and breakfast.
