Published on : Monday, December 28, 2015

ORO RestaurantOro Restaurant at the iconic Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice has been awarded its first Michelin star less than two years after opening.


The 40-seat Venetian restaurant is listed in the 61st edition of the Michelin Guide Italy. Michelin commends Oro’s “fine ingredients, pure flavours and exquisite presentation” and a “particularly interesting” wine list which features over 1,000 esteemed labels.


Launched in April 2014, Oro is headed-up by Executive Chef Davide Bisetto, who earlier in his career became the first Italian chef to gain two Michelin stars in France. Using the finest Italian ingredients to reinterpret the historic Venetian hotel’s gastronomic tradition, Bisetto expertly blends local flavours with influences from his culinary travels in dishes such as bigoli pasta with wedge clam and mullet roe, seaweed and preserved urchin.


Oro is designed by renowned interior designer Adam D Tihany. Reflecting the restaurant’s name, which means ‘gold’ in Italian, the main dining room sits under a domed gold leaf ceiling embellished with a stunning handmade Murano glass chandelier.


Located on the tip of Giudecca Island with unrivalled lagoon views, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is renowned for its exquisite interiors, acclaimed cuisine and the most fabulous swimming pool in the city. It is the third hotel in Belmond’s collection to be awarded a coveted Michelin star – MEE at Belmond Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil became one of the first restaurants in South America to receive the accolade in April 2015, while Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire retains its two stars for the 32nd year in 2016.


General Manager Giampaolo Ottazzi says of the accolade: “We are delighted to be awarded a Michelin star less than two years after Oro’s opening, strengthening Belmond Hotel Cipriani’s reputation as Venice’s most desirable hotel”. Davide Bisetto comments: “I am thrilled to have led Oro to its first Michelin star, which brings to fruition the team’s incredible passion, creativity and expertise. We look forward to further evolving our exciting menu of innovative Venetian cuisine”.
