Chef Vania Ghedini says; “My cuisine is the continuity of culinary practices transmitted by great masters, who taught me the value of this art and the importance of culture and knowledge. We will start from these foundations, from the territories where I have lived in recent years, from Venice and the heritage of the lagoon to create authentic and distinctive dishes. These are the values on which we will build a golden experience. ORO…ora!”

Hotel Cipriani is a perfect movie set that has rightly retained a reputation as the embodiment of enduring Italian luxury and elegance since it first opened over 66 years ago. It’s been a journey of constant evolution melding in part the graceful art of service with exceptional food and drinks over the decades. Restaurant Oro, with its stunning views out over the lagoon, is the present-day epitome of this journey and Vania and I are excited to be part of this latest chapter.” Commented Chef Massimo Bottura.

Massimo Bottura’s creative vision combined with Vania Ghedini’s passion for cooking will establish Oro as a gastronomic destination in Venice and the world. I thank them both for accepting this challenge and wish them all the best“. Commented Christian Boyens, Vice President & Divisional Leader Southern Europe, Belmond.
