Located at the base of Venice’s Rialto Bridge, inside the atrium of the recently-remodeled T Fondaco dei Tedeschi luxury department store, AMO is the fruit of a collaboration between the Alajmo brothers and Philippe Starck. The cafè, marble cocktail bar and atrium seating highlight have a strong Venetian identity and feature the work of local Venetian artisans like Ariside Najean who designed the playful glass pieces.
The AMO coffee shop will serve guests continuously throughout the day, beginning with a breakfast of light and colorful pastries, some of which will not contain wheat flour. There will also be sweets made with extra-virgin olive oil rather than butter and a proper list of Italian coffee preparations.
At lunch and dinner menus will include a wider range of dishes including raw vegetables, fish and meat; three types of pizza (steamed, oven-baked and pan-fried) with some not-to-be-missed Alajmo classics like a savory potato cappuccinowith Bolognese ragù
