Guido Sassi: La Fattoria di Guido Sassi, Lugano
La Fattoria di Guido Sassi revolves around a love of healthy, delicious, wholesome food. It believes in meticulous selection of suppliers and of fresh, seasonal produce, chosen with care and passion: produce that delivers timeless flavours and aromas and is the result of farming techniques that respect nature and reject the use of harmful substances.
This philosophy is reflected in the welcoming interior, with spacious dining rooms and an unmistakable style that clearly draws on the finest country tradition of offering a warm welcome, simplicity and kindness.
A philosophy of respect, for people and their wellbeing, but also for human dignity and the dignity of honest labour, with special consideration for local producers.
Lastly, it is a philosophy that is mindful of the surrounding area, embracing a new awareness of our relationship with the environment: it is important to respect the natural life cycle of plants and the rhythm of the seasons, in order to protect the land and biodiversity.
Eating in a way that respects the environment is easy: it is simply a question of being able to make informed choices.
This is the firm belief of Guido Sassi, who for over 40 years has been a respected host and savant of the social scene in Lugano, which he has dominated thanks to his restaurants. The restaurant business is not a job, but an art that demands great sacrifices and extraordinary vision. Every single restaurant is a different artwork, characterised by the restaurateur who “creates it” just as a painting only exists by the grace of the artist who imagined it in his mind’s eye and subsequently created it.
Even as a little boy, Guido Sassi “breathed” the art of the restaurant business, but his father Aristo, a successful restaurateur and hotelier, dissuaded him from pursuing such a career, describing it as one “of great sacrifices and few rewards”, and Guido took his advice, completing studies that led him to become a successful mechanical design engineer. Yet unexpected events prompted him to “make a u-turn” and begin working alongside his father, who in 1981 had taken over the Olimpia restaurant: the real heart of the social scene in Lugano since the mid-19th century.
The string of successes that followed from that moment on are a testament to his outstanding ability: not just technical expertise, perfected over years, but also an innate awareness and grasp of market trends, coupled with an insight into the intricate workings of a city like Lugano, a city that evolves but at the same time feels the need to remember its roots and idiosyncrasies in order to truly express itself.
Quietly but surely, Guido Sassi’s restaurants and eateries won a special place in the hearts of the people of Lugano, also becoming great tourist attractions. They are part of the City and its “social scene”.
When Gianni Biondi and Daniele De Vecchi met, they came up with the intriguing idea of creating a new restaurant with a completely different vibe, something the likes of which had never been seen in the centre of Lugano before. Young and innovative, offering outstanding quality and a dining experience designed to excite and amaze.
Welcome to the “Fattoria”.
