Dario Ranza

For 27 years, our precious secret has been in the kitchen

If Principe Leopoldo Restaurant is appreciated by all the best international guides such as Les Grandes Tables, Gault Millau and Le Soste, there is just one secret behind this: Chef Dario Ranza’s contribution over the last 27 years.

He is an award-winning chef who respects both the fresh ingredients used and tradition. His nimble and creative hand has given life to surprising menus inspired by his Bergamo origins.

The food critics Gault and Millau, whose guide awarded the restaurant 17 points, wrote: "We can hardly imagine a visit to the Villa without tasting a risotto".

But our Chef is great not only for his cooking: for him, every guest should be treated like a king, and leave his restaurant both content and full.
