The new fine dining offer at L’Assaggio presents a menu designed by Ugo Alciati, a “traditionally modern” take on Italian and Piedmontese cuisine for Parisians and international diners.

From June 2017, the menu at L’Assaggio Restaurant, located in The Castille hotel along the elegant rue Cambon, bears the signature of Ugo Alciati, Michelin-starred chef at the helm of the historic “Guido Ristorante” in Piedmont’s Serralunga d’Alba and the face of Eataly, representing the excellence of Italian cuisine throughout the world. This collaboration brings added value to the Castille, offering a new, pure interpretation of Italy’s famous cuisine, which recalls the distinctive Italianness that is part of Starhotels.

1 Michelin star, 2 Gambero Rosso forks and 2 L’Espresso hats, Ugo Alciati comes from a celebrated family of Italian culinary history. He started working at age 15 and has never looked back.

Simple seasonal menus, top-quality ingredients and promoting local excellence have always been motifs of Alciati’s success.

Chef-Patron of Guido Ristorante with his siblings, Ugo is also the inventor of Lait, a chain of fine ice-cream parlors – Lait is a milk-based gelato churned on the spot – which have won over Italian and international connoisseurs with stores in Italy and overseas.

The chef’s philosophy: understanding your ingredients, respecting the hard work of producers, learning from the land, better to remove than to add. Only a few crystal-clear rules.

#futurewithoutwaste is Ugo Alciati’s motto, who maintains, “What’s my recipe for a future without waste? It lies in the past. With the wisdom of old methods but also with the intelligence of today’s technologies.”
