Da Vittorio – St. Moritz
2 Michelin Stars | 18 GaultMillau
Points Enrico and Roberto Cerea are world-renowned for their high-class yet hearty, extremely Italian gourmet cuisine. The outstanding performance in the kitchen by the two Italian chefs also impressed Guide Michelin testers who awarded the restaurant a Michelin star after the very first winter season. In February 2020 the restaurant has been awarded with the second star. The French GaultMillau restaurant guide awarded the fine-dining restaurant 18 points and described it as Switzerland’s best Italian restaurant. The main establishment of the Cerea brothers is their enchanting Relais & Châteaux-Hotel Da Vittorio in Brusaporto just outside Bergamo. The restaurant was established in 1966 and received its first Michelin star as early as 1970. In the spirit of their parents, all five children today still run the restaurant as a family business. The restaurant in Brusaporto, which today numbers among the world’s most exclusive gourmet restaurants, received the coveted three Michelin stars in 2010. Since May 2019, gourmets in Shanghai and Macao have been able to enjoy the expansion of the Italian culinary institution, too.
“Intuition is our best ingredient!”
