Located in Milan’s Brera Design District, Pacifico restaurant designed by Marsica Fossati, it is a round up through oceanic influences. This is a restaurant owned by international and Michelin star awarded Peruvian chef Jaime Pesaque. Welcome to one of the Milan best restaurants.

Except for several vintage chairs, all the furnishings are custom-made, just as the big marble sink and the wave motif on the wallpaper of the toilet room. All of the lamps, designed by Servomuto studio, are also handcrafted and create a soft, suffused light in constant interplay with the innumerable ocean blue shades that dominate the whole space.
A hit with even the most discerning of Milan’s diners, the restaurant’s private Submarine room makes an intimate setting to enjoy the kitchen’s signature selection of flavourful tiraditos and ceviches.
