Contraste - 1 STAR

Outside the common canons, the Contraste attempts to break the mould by giving the customer an "unexpected" experience, starting from the reception to the moment of tasting. The dishes are not simply innovative but deny innovation itself, experimenting with shapes, geometries and flavours that go beyond the very concept of the unusual. The highlights of the menu, such as "Pulp fiction" and "Donuts alla bolognese", best interpret this drive to reinvent food, pointing to a "contrast" between the idea of the dish and the way it is presented.
