Sunday Roast

The Sunday Roast menu is offered every Sunday for lunch from 12:30 to 14:30.

Sunday roast  is a hallmark of traditional British fare, which our talented chef Nicola Campanella has reworked to perfection using the finest ingredients and incorporating the modern twists that are the cornerstore of the Grill restaurant.

The menu consists of a welcome appetizer and a three-course meal, for which guests can choose from a selection of starters, main courses and desserts. Visually striking highlights include the steak tartare made to order at the table, the Roast Beef trolley carved in front of diners on the terrace and, to the delight of little ones, the gelato cart, where guests can choose their favourite gelato served by our very own ice-cream man.

Selected by our wine manager Alex Bartoli, pairings accompany the Saturday & Sunday Roast dining experience, with wines changing throughout the season, alongside an eclectic selection of bottles and quintessential cocktails. Maitre Michele Luccarini accompanies diners during this engaging and spectacular dining experience held in a perfect setting to while away a weekend afternoon.

Cocktail Classes

An unforgettable experience at the Grill Restaurant where our talented mixologists will guide guests in a hands-on cocktail demonstration. The mixologist entertains guests by showing you how to make our Signature Cocktails, explaining the importance of quality produce, provenance and sustainability. Our “Villa d’Este” Gin will be the star of the show, crafted from Lake Como botanicals and distilled locally. The cocktails are paired to perfection with selected entrées prepared by our talented chefs.
