Saffron in Italian is inspired by the prized value of its stigmas, called threads.
Zafferano focuses on value, and the 3 threads of Food, Service, and Ambience.
With its 43rd-storey perch, rooftop bar, and provenance-led, contemporary Italian cuisine, Zafferano is a vibrant all-occasion destination in the heart of the business district.
Despite calling Milan home, Chef Marco Guccio grew up feasting on the traditional cuisines of Southern Italy, where his family roots lay.
The youngest in the family, Chef Marco shares a close bond with his mother and his grandmother, who can singlehandedly whip up a mean pasta meal from scratch for the entire family.
After graduating from C. Porta Milan, one of the state’s most recognized culinary institutions, Chef Marco trained under Chef Marco Magri in Milan’s Convivum Banqueting and Chef Francesco Mazzei, owner of the L’Anima Restaurant in London.
