... Good service is just as important as good food for Andrea Fenoglio and his team

At Restaurant Sissi in Merano, we do our best to ensure that everything goes like clockwork and to create a relaxed ambience and we pay a great deal of attention to our guests. Maintaining our sense of humour is important too because we think that’s what service will be about in the future. There’s no dress code: you can be yourself at Sissi.


The right atmosphere for every guest



From our beginnings at Plankensteinstraße to the restaurant today

Restaurant Sissi tells the story of a passion: Andrea Fenoglio's passion for good food. The star chef was born in Mondovì in the province of Cuneo, has a Piemontese father and an Austrian mother. From the age of 8 months he grew up in Merano where, after his years of training, he ended up in the best restaurant of the city. In 1991, at the age of 23, he decided to open the Restaurant Sissi in a small Art Nouveau building in Plankenstein Street, which originally housed a grocery store and a tailor shop. In 1998 the restaurant moved to G. Galilei Street. The building where Fenoglio has learned the basics of good cooking is still the seat of the Sissi today. In 2009 the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star, a precious award that the Sissi continues to receive year after year.


We love diversity, but we love capturing the moment when our guests are enjoying themselves even more.
