Marco Sacco’s

Chef Marco Sacco’s travels will take you to a unique place suspended between the lake and the mountains, where time seems to have stopped.

In 2022, this 2-Michelin-star chef goes ashore to Il Verbano, the romantic hotel/restaurant located on Isola dei Pescatori, the smallest of the Borromeo Islands on Lake Maggiore, the only one still inhabited today.

a magical place
suspended in time

Il Verbano is an enchanted location, rich with history and authentic beauty:
a true icon of other times… all to be rediscovered!

“I am extremely pleased to begin this new adventure, right here in my own territory, and to join the community of Isola dei Pescatori, bringing all my restaurant experience and my ‘fresh water spirit.’”

lake and river

Born of Chef Sacco’s bond with the lake and its surrounding territory, this project’s goal is to respect and enhance appreciation for the area.
This has been the objective chef Sacco has been working toward for three years with the Gente di Lago e di Fiume, an organization that safeguards the ecosystems of the river and the lake and conveys awareness through the community’s knowledge.
