Northern Italian cuisine excels at the trendy Barolo Restaurant, which offers exquisite indoor and outdoor seating and transforms dining into an art experience. Pasta lovers will relish the fresh homemade penne in creamy tomato sauce with vodka, Italian bacon, and salmon roe, or can live dangerously with the chocolate tagliolini with wild mushroom sauce and truffle oil. There are 1,500 wines to select from with the assistance from a sommelier, and 20 are offered by glass. The two bars include one outdoors to serve the guest in the large garden. Reservations strongly recommended. Hours: Daily, noon to midnight.
