The “home” of chef Giancarlo Perbellini, two Michelin stars, is a temple of show-cooking where, besides the incredible charisma and savoir-faire of its host, a huge red, open kitchen takes center stage in the small restaurant.
Upon entering, the first feeling it’s like being at the chef’s home, where you can breathe a pleasant casual atmosphere, although nothing is left to chance. Like on a theatre stage, it’s such fun to enjoy the chef’s brigade preparing its most famous signature dishes such as sesame wafer, sea bass tartare, chive goat cheese, and a hint of licorice or tempura prawn and cabbage in sarde in saor style.
Book in advance and ask for one of the sought-after tables right in front of the kitchen. The Perbellini’s world includes also the street hotel Cinque Rooms that offers five design rooms with a sexy, unconventional touch and top modern comforts.
The brigade prepares the dishes, moving with great elegance without barriers with the guests, dressed up in a white shirt, gray vest, and flat cap. The “uniform” is an original tribute to Perbellini’s grandfather Ernesto, from whom Giancarlo learned his love for the art of cooking. Ernesto, in fact, used to be dressed in exactly that way when he cooked for his family.
