KUWAIT: During the celebration of the sixth edition of the "Week of Italian Cuisine in the World", the Italian Embassy in Kuwait in collaboration with Sheraton's Riccardo restaurant held a reception hosted by Ambassador Carlo Baldocci at his residence to commemorate the event. In attendance were Kuwait's diplomatic corps and representatives from the civil societies.

Since its opening in 1979, the iconic Riccardo Restaurant has transformed into a fine-dining Italian restaurant with exquisite menu, unequaled hospitality and a grand design. The legendary Riccardo was built in a way to captivate the visitors with its onyx marble columns and majestic chandeliers that enhances the Venetian handcrafted bronze statues. Truly a work of art and crafted to perfection, this place holds memories of royalties, presidents, kings and dignitaries that have previously dined here.

Our very own Italian Executive Chef Simone Murru and his world-class team was in charge of providing the guests with a modern twist to the original Italian food. Chef Murru and his team shined through the evening and proved that the Italian way of cooking food remains to be the sincerest form of expression of their culture, history and tradition that indeed needs to be celebrated.

Fahed Abushaar, the Complex General Manager of Sheraton Kuwait Hotels, personally emphasized his appreciation of the Italian cuisine and its global spread, expressing that an Italian outlet is the signature restaurant, always prominent in any high-end hospitality sector, like the symbolic Riccardo Restaurant in Sheraton Kuwait, a destination of Kuwait's finest.
