Travertino is a classical Italian restaurant that offers the finest Italian cuisine and Italian wines. Hotel Hassler has assisted in recommending and placing the professional team at Travertino.
The restaurant takes its name from Travertine stone that plays a strong part in the design and interiors. A honey coloured stone typical to Italy, Travertine stone was most commonly used by the ancient Romans. Famous structures constructed with Travertine include the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Colonnade of Saint Peter's Basilica and many Roman aqueducts.
A contrast between rough and smooth treatment of the stone has been used in the interiors of Travertino. The main restaurant wall makes use of the inherent transparency of the stone where a soft back light creates an unusual effect that highlights the quality and elegance of the stone. The restaurant has a contemporary design with sage green upholstery lending understated elegance.
Situated at the lobby level, the restaurant has 58 covers and offers a fine dining experience with classical cuisine. The culinary essence of Travertino is traditional and authentic Italian cuisine with a strong creative element. The menu offers a variety of fresh home made pastas including gnocchi, ravioli, fettuccini and lasagna; Polenta and classical Italian specialties like Breast of Guinea Fowl, Pan Seared Diwers King Scallops with Black Truffles and Grilled Vegetables in Balsamic Vinegar.
