We don’t take a trip,

a trip takes us.

(John Steinbeck)

In Viaggio is a moment, a fragment of a conversation, a detail that is captured from the corner of the eye when the train passes by.

In Viaggio is a memory, that the mind has saved in one of his drawers.

In Viaggio are nine dishes with Italian and local ingredients that we treat with respect and restraint. With them, I will take you on a journey that leads through my memories and stories – past, present, future – to a vibrant sensory experience.

In Viaggio is food culture, it is love for good food; An innocent hymn, a ceaseless movement detached from its context, representing and defending it at the same time.

In Viaggio is not the destination,it is all that you take with you when you are off again.


In Viaggio is located in the heart of a charming Garden, in the center of Bolzano. Pass through the path, following the signs, then ring the bell and as the door opens the boundaries of space and time around you blur while you get directed to one of our tables.

Your journey begins.

In Viaggio – Claudio Melis Restaurant offers evening service only. Entrance is from 7 pm to 8 pm, by reservation only, four days a week (closed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays). The restaurant is located in Bolzano, on Via Piave 15 (although it is inside a garden, it does not have outdoor tables).

We regret to inform you that we do not allow children under 12 to enter the restaurant, and dogs, even small ones, are not allowed. In Viaggio should be experienced with the right atmosphere, so please mute or turn off your mobile phone.

In our restaurant, we do not impose a dress code on guests. However, we do ask you to avoid sports or outdoor clothing; gentlemen are kindly requested not to wear shorts, sandals or flip-flops.

In Viaggio – Claudio Melis Restaurant is a restaurant of the Esemdemí brand, its concept born out of an idea of Claudio Melis, managed by Claudio himself with the help of  his wife Monica Wieser. In Viaggio would however not exist without our staff members:

Max | Giulia | Erminio | Sina | Nas | Junior | Sam | Betania | Laura | Alessandro

In Viaggio is a mix of past, present and future stories. An incessant movement disconnected from its context but which, at the same time, represents and defends it. It would not exist without the foresight of suppliers who are now friends and an integral part of our project.
