L’hotel 5 stelle Viu è la sede del ristorante gourmet Morelli, dello stellato chef patron del Pomiroeu di Seregno, Giancarlo Morelli. Lo chef – dopo l’apertura della Trattoria Trombetta (Mi) – raddoppia in città con un locale di gran classe: ampi tavoli, eleganti, tovaglie candide che spiccano rispetto alle pareti scure, ingentilite da un’immagine macro di fiori alla parete di fondo, quasi una quinta teatrale. La cucina è uno spazio di quasi 200 mq; qui è stata installata una bella madia dal mood di casa di campagna e un grande tavolo antico in legno, una sharing table che può accogliere fino a 14 persone, dove vige il menu a sorpresa (7 portate a 200 €, vino e coperto esclusi) per cenare vis à vis con chef e brigata (il resident chef è Livio Pedroncelli, storico braccio destro di Morelli).

Tre i menu degustazione, oltre a quello à la carte: La Tradizione, dove si trovano piatti classici milanesi, dal risotto alla cotoletta, nella interpretazione di Morelli. Il secondo, più ampio e rappresentativo della creatività dello chef, è Esperienza Sensoriale, con piatti (che però cambiano periodicamente) come Cavatelli cacio e pepe, crudo di seppia e meringa al nero di seppia o Lombo d’agnello al punto rosa con frutta secca e salsa al pepe del Giappone o il Riso mantecato al topinambur, salsa all’aglio nero fermentato e fricassea di creste di gallo. In alternativa, il menu tematico (quando scriviamo c’è il menu The Hunter, dedicato a cacciagione e affini). Infine Lo chef sceglie per voi, menu a mano libera in 8 portate (140 euro). Un cenno speciale meritano i dessert, firmati dal maestro pasticcere Gianluca Fusto.

Il ristorante Morelli è aperto solo alla sera; se vi volete concedere un ottimo aperitivo o uno speciale after dinner passate dal Bulk, il mixology bar dell’hotel (dove si può anche pranzare): a occuparsi dei drink è Ivan Patruno, fra i migliori bartender di Milano under 30.

    Was a nice place. Everything a little too much in the beginning it was empty and we felt monitored by the staff. Once they got busy this changed. Wrong water, sometimes a little wait on drinks. Dinner was interesting but not mind blowing. Some of the dishes tasted a little random, some good. Was it worth the price? Not sure ????

    We wanted as main Cours white truffel with spagetti. We were awere of high price but knew by experience that the quality wasworth it. Then it was a major disapointment that the musrom was tastless. We gave our constructiv feedback and got as result a reduction of price on the bill of 20 euro. Which , of course, put us in a bad mood. The dish was prised 175 euro and was worth the price of spagetti. But IT does not END up with a price reduktion. A shame you gave us. We will never visit you again. Ola Dybvik

    We were seeking for a romantic dinner, but we had the impression that the kitchen had forgotten our table. We decided to try the short tasting menu after waiting for more than 40 minutes to order. The interlude between each plate was 20 minutes... The experience was totally eclipsed by the long wait time. No apologies by the waiters. The service did not justified the amount we paid: 283€ /2 people.

    It was a true food experience. From start to finish. Feel like a true Italian and enjoy all extra’s surrounding your dinner. The beautiful decoration! The hand painted walls by the Chef’s son! The tableware, the outfits of the staff. Every detail sooths your senses. And the food...the food!!! So much choices brought down to an easy and enjoyable experience. Would love to visit the other 3 restaurants of the chef, because to create so much love, friendliness, decor and taste can only come from Passion. Don’t pass a chance of stopping over. Pay respect to this beautiful food hideaway! Even a cocktail from the extensive creative list is worth the visit! Bellisimo!!

    Absolutely amazing tasting menu with a group of girlfriends in Milan - every dish was beautifully presented and extremely delicious. Service was friendly and very understanding for our lack of Italian language skills. The room was beautiful - very stylish atmosphere and sophisticated décor. We also thought that the cost for our tasting menu and wine was very fair. Loved it and want to go back!
