“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.
