Ottimo, which translates to “excellent”, is the pioneering Italian restaurant at ITC Gardenia and captures the organic, vibrant spirit of Italy. The restaurant offers a signature Pan-Italian dining experience that celebrates quintessential Italian dishes prepared from the finest local and imported ingredients. On offer are a range of thoughtfully composed appetizers, soups, pasta and risotto dishes, pizzas and a main course that showcases specialties from Rome, Florence, Parma, Milan and Livorno.
With a well thought out section on carb-friendly Italian cuisine for the health conscious, the culinary choices at Ottimo are a rare fusion of traditional Italian with an emphasis on nutrition and fresh ingredients for our guests’ well-being.
The interiors of the restaurant celebrate ITC Gardenia’s commitment to “Responsibly Luxury” and showcase nature’s bounty in a spacious, elegant setting. A rich colour palette of green and gold coupled with beautiful photographs by Magda Indigo showcasing plants, vegetables and herbs, lend an element of theatre to the restaurant. Ottimo brings nature into its spaces with the use of “Terrariums”, which are essentially micro-gardens, held within a delicate glass bowl, adding a unique element to the restaurant’s décor.
A seamless blend of gourmet cuisine, spectacular interiors and the finest service make Ottimo the perfect place to unwind and indulge with friends and family.
