Oro Restaurant

A Golden Touch in the Kitchen

The iconic Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice, Italy reopened for the 2014 season with a stylish new restaurant overlooking the lagoon.

Named Oro, which means 'gold' in Italian and loosely translates as 'perfect' in colloquial Venetian dialect, the 40-seat eatery was designed by Adam D Tihany, the renowned interior designer behind famous restaurants such as 'Dinner' by Heston Blumenthal in London.

A Golden Chef

Oro is headed-up by Davide Bisetto, the first Italian chef to be awarded two Michelin stars in France. Using the finest Italian ingredients, Bisetto will reinterpret the historic Venetian hotel's gastronomic tradition with his acclaimed culinary creativity. Signature dishes include 'Red Prawn and Spider Crab au Naturel with Pink Grapefruit Aspic, Citrus, Sant'Erasmus Cucumber Sorbet and Bloody Mary Water' and 'Sea Bass Drenched in Marostica Extra Virgin Olive Oil with a Garden of Lagoon Vegetables'.

Gold and Glass

Reflecting the restaurant's name, the main dining room sits under a domed gold leafed ceiling embellished with a stunning handmade Murano glass chandelier. Intricate details include Seguso chandeliers, fine Rubelli chair fabrics, three emerald green glass sculptures by Luciano Vistosi and blown glass candelabras by Venini.

Additional eye-catching elements include bronze sculptures by French artist Paulin Paris and a painting by contemporary Latin American artist Julio Larraz. Wrought iron custom chairs and stone-top tables with striped umbrellas furnish Oro's terrace on the Rio San Giorgio, the perfect spot for an alfresco dinner.

Gold in the Goblet

Before entering the main restaurant, guests will pass through the sophisticated Enoteca, La Via Della Sete, which boasts a wine collection of over 1,000 select labels. The focal point of the room consists of a large bar counter decorated with intricate mosaics and a glass enclosed wine cellar. Here, guests can enjoy an aperitif before dinner in a casual setting.
