“AALTO cuisine is boundless, free from any definition or prescribed models. Free to be Italian, Japanese, both or neither. Not tracing borders expresses the possibility to crossing them.”
Claudio Liu, founder
The freedom of AALTO comes from its protagonists. Claudio Liu, already at the helm of IYO – the only Michelin-starred contemporary Japanese restaurant in Italy – has chosen chef Takeshi Iwai for his new location. Both interpret their craft without prejudice: of style, geography, concept. Both pursue a creative, open, contemporary cuisine.
