Il Cantuccio

A Michelin-starred kitchen in the heart of Alta Brianza

A Michelin star shines since 2007 in the heart of Alta Brianza and it is the star of the restaurant Il Cantuccio, where tradition meets creativity and innovation o make you dream with the great class and pure simplicity of every dish. A star, reconfirmed for this 2018 too, which still gratifies year after year thanks to the hard work and the great passion of the executive chef Mauro Elli. A “cantuccio” (“corner” in Italian, TN) in the true sense of the word: a small, intimate and almost secluded space that took root in Albavilla, a typical village of Brianza surrounded by mountains near Lake Como, in a narrow street in the town centre where it maintains its original structure with stones and exposed timber.

Il Cantuccio

A rural corner of unexpected richness hidden in the scenery of Brianza, with fine furnishings, works of art on the walls and impeccable mise-en-place. All details that reveal the propensity of the chef Mauro Elli towards the unmistakable high-class Swiss-French style. Seau à glaces, glacettes and gueridon to present high quality meals and bottles, with a wardrobe and purse holders. Even the greetings don’t go unnoticed: timely and precise, but with a homely touch. It will make your stay perfect in the two splendid rooms of the restaurant, without ever forgetting the bon ton.

Il Cantuccio

Il Cantuccio is a place to fall in love again with each visit. A small gourmet retreat for those who love good food and local flavors with creatively revisited recipes that do not stray too far from tradition. Fresh hand-made pasta, risottos, traditional poultry, sea fish in delicate combinations that don’t denature the flavors. The chef himself will take your order and will guide you through the menu, even if  there’s always space for those with already clear ideas.

Il Cantuccio

You will dream their desserts at night. First of all and absolute must-try, the almond soup with small red fruits and pistachio ice cream: it is the timeless dessert of the restaurant Il Cantuccio, always present on the menu. To accompany your meal, a well-stocked cellar of the best labels in circulation. And if you want to be on the safe side, choose one from the special selection of chef Mauro Elli. His availability, like his talent, is infinite.
