The Italian restaurant Mezzaluna is a classic fine dining restaurant of Mövenpick Hotel & Spa Bangalore. This gourmet Italian restaurant is the ideal venue for social or corporate luncheons and dinners. It offers private dining, Verona Wine and cheese tasting, authentic cuisine and a pizza oven. Tucked cosily away from a busy lobby, guests are welcomed by a vintage feel as they walk 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 them through a wine sampling session while Chef Armando Di Filippo creates magic in his kitchen.
Chef Filippo, whose cooking is the soul of this gourmet restaurant, passionately follows 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 Filippo one of the best Italian chefs in the city today.
