The elegance of the fashion house Trussardi, an impeccable cuisine made of excellent ingredients, a superb location: these and other factors make the restaurant Trussardi alla Scala one of the cult of haute cuisine in Milan. The fashion house was able to combine design, style and haute cuisine in a place that is a reference point for aficionados and celebrities, thanks to a perfect blend of flavors, aromas and refined environment where every meal becomes a multi sensory experience.

Overlooking Piazza della Scala, the restaurant has been designed as a place where the modern and cosmopolitan elegance is declared in every room. A style where refinement is in every detail, creating an atmosphere full of charm with large spaces, windows overlooking the square, the warm tones of wood, gold and leather that welcome guests.
The design of the restaurant is combined with a kitchen that enhances flavors combining Italian and French traditions, with a constant search for fresh and high quality ingredients. The credit for this success belongs to the chef Luigi Taglienti, who was able to bring a pure and direct cuisine, with a perfect balance of taste and flavors and obtained the first Michelin star in 2013.

Together with chef Carlo Cracco, external consultant of the restaurant, chef Taglienti found a place where he can express his view of the cuisine: experimentation, discipline, research on raw materials, technique and expertise: everything is aimed to excite the customer.

Environments immersed in the Trussardi elegance, a refined and informal style, where it is possible to relax and enjoy the dishes of the chef, rediscovering flavors and local products, in a perfect mix of tradition and innovation: for haute cuisine lovers, a stop at Trussardi alla Scala is a must.
