The kitchen

Renovated in early 2016, Il San Pietro kitchen has already become the talk of the culinary world! Digging into 1806 cubic meters of solid rock, It took 54 builders, electricians & engineers, working three 24 hour shifts, just 5 months to complete this one-of-a-kind 400 sq meter feat of engineering. Designed by Andrea Viacava, all pieces of equipment were custom made in Italy to our unique specifications.

All the equipment functions on electricity, but each appliance is connected to a computerized system that controls the power for every machine. This means the kitchen functions on one 4th of the electricity that a kitchen of its kind & size would ordinarily use. The quality of the air is cleaned by a UTA machine (Unity Treatment of Air) which filters & purifies the air. There are no open flames or gas & all of the stoves use induction heating so all surfaces can be cleaned using only vinegar.

Every night at 2:00 AM the entire kitchen is sanitized by ozone, the same cleansing system used by NASA space stations & surgery rooms (Ozone is simply air zapped by electricity, so no chemical is involved in the process). We are proud to be one of the only kitchens in the world where everything - from the bread to the icecream - is homemade. All organic waste is transformed into compost that is used in our gardens. Il San Pietro kitchen has been awarded as the most environmentally friendly in the world.
