Dinner: 7:00 PM-11:30 PM
Tucked cosily away from a busy lobby, you are welcomed by a vintage feel as one walks in - with fresco paintings depicting scenes from Venice, mosaic wall and ceiling art, golden trimmings on the pillars and timeless paintings adorning the walls, delicately washed with light from ornate lamps. A wine and cheese bar welcomes guests at the entrance where the sommelier is happy to take you through a wine sampling session while Chef Armando Di Filippo creates magic in his kitchen.
Chef Armando, whose cooking is the soul of this gourmet restaurant, follows passionately a cooking philosophy to cook food that is simple and genuine and made from fresh ingredients. This is truly reflected in every item served- right from the unique bread presentations to the celebratory desserts. His passion for the art of cooking got fuelled in his family run restaurant back in Italy as a young boy. Combined with rich experience gained over the years during his travels across the globe, this panache for all things culinary, has resulted in making Chef Armando one of the best Italian Chefs in the city today.
Chef Armando’s culinary journey began early, as a young adult influenced by his father, also a Chef. Chef Armando began experimenting with cooking right from childhood at his father’s bakery in Italy and went on to manage and run the entire kitchen once he turned professional. His passion for the art of cooking combined with rich experience gained over the years during his travels and stints in kitchens across the globe has resulted in making Chef Armando one of the best Italian Chef’s in the city today.
Chef Armando brings with him over 12 years of experience to the table with expertise in Italian food and bakery. His early years in Rome married with the cultural influences gained during his stay in various countries such as Canada, Greece, Belgium and Spain has created a connoisseur in Chef Armando- one who looks to not just create good food, but share great experiences through food. That’s just what one can experience at Mezzaluna.
