industrial elegance in a factory setting
Carlo e Camilla in Segheria is a project born from the interaction between Tanja Solci, Carlo Cracco, and Nicola Fanti. A must go gastro-bistro in Milan, the perfect place to enjoy an exquisite gourmet lunch or dinner, as well as a very cool destination to sip special drinks as an aperitif in the outdoor courtyard surrounded by candles and music.
From an empty 1929’s factory, a vibrating and magical restaurant came out. Tanja Solci, art director, exhibitions’ curator, and designer put her aesthetic and creative culture together to give birth to this elegant and fascinating atmosphere.
A powerful concept characterizes the restaurant: there are no single tables where you can eat privately with family and friends. Guests can dine on one of the two 30 meters social tables in bleached Cedarwood that count 65 seats or on one of the surrounding round iron round tables — a unique experience in a theatrical set where conviviality and sharing meet the history of design.
Carlo e Camilla is set in a historic sawmill and reflects an intense work of industrial architecture: large columns, brick walls, and original cement walls have been left exposed to give this feeling.
The general set up is decorated by suspended vintage chandeliers, long wood tables, A.G. Fronzoni’s and Jasper Morrison’s seats, produced by Cappellini. Tables are decorated with an original mise en place: flowers, candles and a multitude of white porcelains and plates with different decorations, selected among the Florentine Maison Richard Ginori.
Chef Carlo Cracco proposes dishes referring to the Italian gastronomic tradition reworked in a modern key, and more actual proposals with original ingredients and combinations are found in the menu. The offer is seasonal and changes four times a year, always including meat, fish and vegetarians options with fresh and selected ingredients.
The restaurant is possibile to reserve and, if request, the mise en place is entirely customizable.
