Dine in Michelin-starred excellence at the La Torre restaurant, showcasing gourmet farm to table cuisine that remains true to the core COMO philosophy of only using the finest and freshest produce.
Being the first COMO hotel to open central Europe, the launch fulfils an important ambition for the COMO Group founder, Christina Ong, saying, “I have a deep affection for the Italian aesthetic. I admire how Italians are able to layer up history with modernity and come up with the most exquisite result.”
She continues, “Italians may be the masters of Baroque, but they also understand the way simplicity resonates in its own unique and powerful way, from design to food.”
Italian influences are apparent in many COMO properties including, lifestyle retreat COMO Point Yamu located in Thailand, and even in one of Bali’s best surf retreats, COMO Uma Canggu, both featuring Italian restaurants and interiors.
Olivier Jolivet, CEO of the Como Group commented: “Como Castello Del Nero is the holistic next step of growing our portfolio of hotels and resorts in select destinations around the world.”
“We don’t intend to be the biggest lifestyle brand, but our objective is to be one of the best — with offerings in the most desirable locations.”
