This restaurant was named after Gioachino Rossini, the great Italian composer who gave the world The Barber of Seville, and was also an avid gourmand. Some of the restaurant's famous dishes also bear his name, like the Rossini beef steak with braised foie gras and the Rossini pizza with mango puree.
In fact, the restaurant's entire menu is an ironic re-interpretation of Italian cuisine. The mysterious Il Dottore turns out to be Roman pizza with Doktorskaya kolbasa (doctor's sausage); and the Tonnato Vitello is an "upside-down" version of the vitello tonnato dish: with veal sauce coating tuna slices, rather than vice versa. The vegetarian side of the menu features several types of carpaccio, with artichokes, pumpkin, zucchini and cauliflower. The restaurant has an oven for cooking pizzas and focaccias: classic, barley, rye and multi-grain.
Rossini's staff prepare a range of unique cocktails, named after legendary Italian artists. The wine menu offers more than 200 items, including over 40 Italian wines. There are sodas, too, with organic fruit syrups, and a children's menu.
The restaurant has two dining halls and a vast terrace.
