In pursuit of vitality and Swiss hospitality, Swissôtel Clark opens Ristorante di Verona, an authentic Italian restaurant using contemporary and modern culinary techniques. Verona is a province in Italy and known to be the setting of the classic romantic novel Romeo & Juliet.
Located on the 5th floor of Swissôtel Clark, Ristorante di Verona, which started to welcome guests and customers on July 7, is the 10th dining outlet of the hotel offering guests a new concept of indoor and alternative al fresco dining, overlooking the mountainous and natural view of the Zambales Mountain Ranges.
“We are overwhelmed by the continuous support that our guests and customers showed since the hotel’s soft-opening in March. After three months of soft operation, and as we continue to offer unique dining experiences for our guests, we are hoping for your continuous support as we open our 10th dining outlet in the newest vibrant destination within Clark,” said Tarek Aouini, General Manager of Swissôtel Clark.
Great views, warm service, and authentic Italian food—for those looking to enjoy a romantic vibe or a well-comfortable but refined alfresco dining, Ristorante di Verona offers the best of both worlds. Be charmed by the dash of creative nature of the interiors, starting from the atmospheric windows and wall installations, spacious halls, and private dining rooms, up to the contemporary architecture of the ceiling that takes customers back to the timeless aesthetics of Italy.
Inspired by the Italian precision of fine dining, Ristorante di Verona features an all-encompassing menu, starting from the aperitif to digestive.
To get the full experience, customers can choose from the rich-flavored wines to accompany their sumptuous lunch or dinner. Ristorante di Verona offers more than 300 extensive wine selections sourced from various regions, including a 1958 Pio Cesare Barolo from Italy and a 1990 Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru Classe from France.
Heading Ristorante di Verona is an international-renowned chef Alessio Loddo, hailing from Sardinia, Italy. Starting his experience from the free-standing restaurants in Italy, he ventured into international regions as early as the 2000s in Dubai, and has opened multiple Italian restaurants in 5-star hotels all over the world, including BiCE Ristorante of Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, Le Meridian Phuket Beach Resort, and La Gritta Restaurant in Bangkok.
He was also in charge of quite a few Italian restaurants located here in the Philippines, including Tosca Italian Restaurant of Dusit Thani Hotel Manila, Waterfront Cebu City, Crimson Hotel Filinvest City Alabang, and Taal Vista Hotel in Tagaytay before joining Swissôtel Clark.
With 27 years in service, he has continuously embedded Italian heritage in cuisine, inspired by his roots in Sardinia.
