“A quiet creaking of the fibres between the teeth, a nutty taste which glides across the tongue on the fat from the cream, synaptic fireworks in the head.”
- Neuer Zürcher Zeitung about Il Tartufo
Il Tartufo features a 2,000 bottle cellar, highlighting classic European regions such as Tuscany, Sicily, Burgundy, Champagne, Germany and Greece as well as selected vintages from the new world such as California and Chile.
The menu represents Nikolopoulos’s knowledge, training and skills, which is marked by his desire to reinterpret classical mediterranean recipes and thereby elevate them to a contemporary and often unfamiliar dimension of sophistication. His profound love of nature manifests itself in allowing fresh and selected products to unfold their natural flavors, not rarely gathering himself the sedimentary deposits forming sea salt from Kalamata in Greece, or selecting, in October each year, only the finest truffles of Alba, Italy. He became head chef at Il Tartufo in 2014 after senior positions in renowned restaurants in France, Switzerland and Singapore.
