Le Calandre
Max Alajmo's culinary playground

“Cuisine is like a needle that passing repeatedly through small holes creates a thread so thin and strong that it unconsciously binds us all.”

In 1981, Erminio Alajmo and Rita Chimetto open Le Calandre. Max and Raf take over and Le Calandre becomes one of eight Italian restaurants with three Michelin stars. The inspiration for Max’s distinctive dishes comes from looking at the world with a childlike curiosity and sense of discovery, as well as his continuous and in-depth research of ingredients. His distinctive approach to cuisine can also be felt in the dining room of Le Calandre, where verything from the hand-carved wooden tables to the glassware and room fragrance was designed by the Alajmo brothers and produced by master Italian artisans. The result is a multisensory culinary experience that is carried the dining room, cordially and naturally.

The team


Professionalism, team spirit and friendship are the key ingredients of the Le Calandre team. In the kitchen, Max works alongside his sous chef Diego Magro and a select group of young, aspiring chefs. The front of the house is run by Andrea Coppetta Calzavara, veteren and award-winning maître, together with the restaurant's talented sommelier Matteo Bernardi.

Menu

Summer has arrived here in Italy filling our local markets with ripe and colorful ingredients.

Also look for the chef's buffalo ricotta, an almond and coconut dessert in the shape of a little ricotta, and his melted tartlet with apricot and curry.
