À la carte

Gourmet cuisine is my language, my way of interacting with the world, telling my emotion.
I devoted my life to the art of food, preparation and tasting. I constantly search for high quality ingredients, new excellence producers, new food preparation and processing techniques.
The dishes I create talk about me, they are the result of my crazy creativity, I am the expression of the place where I live, the exaltation of my traditions, my values, my culture.
I love beautiful design and art. I want every dish to be a small masterpiece.
This is me.. I am Nicola Egò..
