Lume Milano is a luminous restaurant; it’s where executive chef Luigi Taglienti has conceived a series of à la carte and tasting menus that combine tradition and innovation of Italian cuisine.
Set in the former Richard Ginori porcelain factory – itself a part of the swish W37 multi-purpose development in Milan’s Naviglio Grande district – Lume makes the mark for its all-white 40-seater dining room designed by Monica Melotti.
The all-white restaurant is extremely beautiful and the sensation of intimacy is reinforced by the fact that tables are spread out over two rooms and an “al fresco” area (patio).
As for his cooking, heritage meets evolution. Our party had opted for the “Taglienti Racconta Taglienti” menu. In our opinion, it was the appropriate menu to taste because it was the best expression of chef Taglienti. This menu told the story of his life growing up, tasting his family’s cooking and recipes, and his interpretation of the dishes he ate when he was a kid to bring them to 21st century cooking.
The nine dishes composing the “Taglienti Racconta Taglienti” menu were fabulous, masterly thought out and realized, as one of the friends who were with us put it : the “Thinking Design” of his menu was wonderfully executed.
The wine list was fabulous as well -- as it should be in this kind of restaurants -- full of great references like the Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve champagne and the tag prices were very democratic and affordable, ranging from 35 euros to 650 euros.
We chose Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve to start our lunch and then followed with a fabulous organic red from Marche called Le Cantinette Morellone Piceno Superiore 2011 which was incredibly good and smooth, a real find at a great price (only 40 euros).
The service was smooth, professional and bilingual.
It was our best high-end gastronomy in Italy so far with our dinner at Tokuyoshi.
Luigi Taglienti has a great talent and a big personality; it was a big risk for him to accept this project to setup his restaurant in the Milan’s Naviglio Grande district two years ago.
Lume is worth taking a plane to Milan to discover a great chef like Luigi Taglienti, his restaurant has one star in the Michelin Guide, but for us he deserves at least two.
A big bravo to the chef and his team.
