Executive chef: Davide Ciavattella

  • Award icon

    MICHELIN 1 Star

    2022

Don Alfonso 1890 is the epitome of fine dining, from the delicate Italian plates to the chic decor. The restaurant has collected countless awards for its nuanced approach to Mediterranean cuisine, including one MICHELIN star. The tasting menu is a can’t-miss experience, but a la carte dishes like ravioli stuffed with pheasant are equally tempting.

    Don Alfonso 1890 offers an unparalleled dining experience that truly earns its five-star rating. From the moment you walk through the doors, the elegant ambiance sets the stage for an unforgettable meal. The decor is a perfect blend of modern chic and classic sophistication, with soft lighting, plush seating, and an open layout that allows for both intimacy and a lively atmosphere. The service at Don Alfonso is nothing short of impeccable. From the attentive host who greeted us with a warm smile to the knowledgeable waitstaff who guided us through every course, every interaction was handled with professionalism and genuine care. The pacing of the meal was flawless, with each course arriving at the perfect moment, allowing us to savor each dish fully without feeling rushed. Just want to say thank you very much to everyone who made our night one that will always be remembered and cherished.

    Booked the Roll-Royce experience. The restaurant call you a head of time for the pick up time. The ride on the Roll-Royce was nice. The food presentation were amazing. The food tastes are average compare to some other similar price restaurant (this could be just personal preference). However, the Roll-Royce is a previous generation Ghost and not a Phantom as advertise on open table. It might not be a huge difference to most customer, but it is nice to not mislead customer. At the end of the day, the Phantom is still 1.5x-2x of a RR Ghost.

    The staff was super friendly. Our server recognized that we speak German and talked the whole night in German with us. We tried a la cart and it was awesome. Excellent wine recommendations!

    Don Alfonso 1890 is expensive. And worth every penny. The food was magnificent and every member of staff superbly trained — intelligent, courteous, obliging, and knowledgeable not just about the restaurant’s menu, but about food and wine in general. And they were all willing to share their passion for food and wine with guests in the most pleasant, unstuffy way. We had the tasting menu and wine pairings and were blown away by all the different tastes, textures and varieties. One fabulous, complex dish followed another, each prepared and presented with the greatest degree of skill. It was a delicious, charming, memorable evening.

    Es un restaurante muy bonito, una gran ubicación y vista al lago, solo que es algo caro, las porciones son pequeñas, la atención muy buena en general, desde la recepción hasta el final de la estadía, encuentro que es demasiado caro, lo que sí destácanos con mi marido es que es una experiencia única y distinta a lo que hemos vivido y conocido. La anfitriona 10 de 10, muy buena atención.
