“Top Italian”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We were a party of 5 persons that enjoyed the wonderful food at the Armani Ristorante. The tasting menu was very good, but of course quite plentiful for the ladies. We also enjoyed the winelist. Service was kind and attentive.

“Less than expected”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

The location is very elegant, typical Armani style, but ask to have a table with the view on the fountains otherwise the dinner will seem boring. I liked the kitchen with open view.
The personnel is expert and gentile, especially head chef Mr Selvatico who explained in detail what we ordered.
However, I expected that the food would be more delicate. I had spaghetti with lobster and it was very heavy, the sauce covered the flavor of the lobster.
Price of wines is insane! Price of food in line with the kind of restaurant.

“excellent dining”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

I forgot to review this from our visit in November 2013. I can't remember what we chose to eat. I can say that we had a beautiful meal and the service was excellent.

It is not cheap, but worth the money.

“A Tall Order to Match This Dining Experience”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

We were certainly drawn to Armani/Ristorante because of the building sitting above it, but the restaurant could be situated in the world's shortest building and it still would have been among our most memorable dining experiences. The ambience is fabulous, the staff is world-class, and the superb cuisine was topped off by having Executive Chef Alessandro Salvatico come by our table. If you love black truffles, it's worth the trip, with "La Sfera" dessert beyond compare.
