Cornelia Poletto

Restaurant Cornelia Poletto

At her Italian fine-dining restaurant, chef Cornelia Poletto proves that it’s actually possible to squeeze 301,338 square kilometers of Italy into 100 square meters of Hamburg. This cozy spot is based on the idea of ​​the traditional Italian “Gastronomia”: a delicatessen shop where you can comfortably linger around. Chef Cornelia beautifully showcases her love of Mediterranean and Italian cuisine – whether it’s her cooking behind the stove or what you see on the shelves of her restaurant-and-shop-in-one. Thanks to the open kitchen, you get an insight into how Cornelia works her magic. Enjoy the chef’s fine gastronomy in the intimate dining area, at the bar, or on the sunny terrace. Traditional Italian hospitality included.

Chef Cornelia Poletta knows that all good parties start and end in the kitchen. Cooking, of course, has always been a huge passion of hers. It’s a passion that she also nurtures outside her restaurant, in her kitchen at home.

Cornelia Poletto’s cuisine

With over two decades of experience in gastronomy, chef Cornelia Poletto treats her diners’ palates with her bold and herb-heavy aromatic cuisine. Her kitchen philosophy is: really good food can only come from really good products. It’s a credo she excellently showcases at her restaurant. The chef offers two menus: one with her house classics ("Cornelia Poletto Classico") and a tasting menu with exciting, new dishes. Her half-chicken is considered to be best in the city. But her pasta and fish dishes are just as incredible.

Hamburg area

Gastronomia Cornelia Poletto is located in Hamburg, Germany’s second-largest city. Being home to one of Europe’s biggest harbours, Hamburg has been called the "Venice of the North. You can walk along its lovely waterways and canals, or hop on a Venetian gondola to sail along the river Alster. Three of Hamburg’s most popular sights include Miniatur Wunderland (model railway and miniature airport attraction), Port of Hamburg (seaport on the river Elbe), and Speicherstadt (the Merchants District with its characteristic red-brick architecture).
