Trussardi alla Scala
Italian fashion label Trussardi is known for its refined elegance and its eponymous restaurant reflects this by displaying an inherent sense of style. Warm shades of gold combined with rich wood and leather detailing characterise the space while chef Luigi Taglienti’s cooking is focused on distinctive, instantly recognisable flavours. His careful selection of ingredients gives a fresh taste to traditional recipes while the integration of more unusual flavours bolster the cuisine further. Expect to find raw sea bream, sweet and sour cabbage and ginger and saffron jelly on the varied menu.
