Open Monday 12noon-2.45pm / Tuesday to Saturday 12noon-2.30pm and 7pm-10pm
Valentino Vintage Restaurant is located between the San Babila district and the Quadrilatero della Moda and pays homage to Rodolfo Valentino by also taking the name of the historic Milanese restaurant. The restaurant with its menu curated by chef Emanuele Menna is a journey halfway between the authentic flavors of Tuscan and Milanese cuisine.
The name “Valentino” is simultaneously a tribute to the Italian actor, Rodolfo Valentino, and a re-enactment of the restaurant of the same name that already occupied the same rooms in the early 2000s; the adjective “vintage” that goes with the name, expresses the taste of the furnishings with which the restaurant is adorned, a mix of neoclassical architecture and belle époque style, which come together to give guests a refined and elegant setting. Indeed, the Valentino’s cuisine represents the typical flavors of the national food and wine tradition, with a clear Tuscan tendency. Even the wine list, entrusted to the care of sommelier and maître Raffaello Rizzi, is largely made up of bottles from Tuscany.
