AMO marks the birth of a one-of-a-kind of restaurant experience. Developed by world-famous creator Philippe Starck and the Alajmo brothers, Italy’s most revered culinary family, AMO offers purity, lightness, and honesty in the heart of T Fondaco dei Tedeschi's theatrical opulence.
Cuisine to Unmask the True Self
The AMO café is located on the ground floor of the Fondaco, serving guests Italian delicacies throughout the day inside a small coffee shop and at tables in the central courtyard. At lunch and dinner, the courtyard transforms into a full-service restaurant with a wider range of dishes including items fresh from the Rialto market, three styles of pizza and not-to-be-missed Alajmo classics like a savory potato cappuccino.
The world’s youngest three-star Michelin chef, Massimiliano (Max) Alajmo is esteemed by both his clients and peers for his clever interpretation of traditional Italian flavors. Together with his brother Raffaele (Raf), C.E.O. and maître des lieux of the Alajmo restaurant group, Max oversees the kitchens of Le Calandre and La Montecchia restaurants in Padua, Caffè Stern in Paris and Grancaffè & Ristorante Quadri in St. Mark’s Square.
