Tialini, an Italian restaurant group based in Germany, are looking to develop their sites further a field and become a world wide success, offering good food at reasonable prices.
The Stuttgart branch of Tialini, located in the centre of the city, close to the promenade and shopping areas, hosts 200 covers and reached the nomination stages of the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards based on its interesting design undertaken by Heller Designstudio.
Marcel Heller, Managing Director of Heller Designstudio said:
“The most important part for me is that the restaurant is doing well, the nomination for the award is an added bonus, it’s nice to be praised for work which we’re exceptionally proud of.”
The restaurant itself, an authentic Italian eatery boasts a menu suitable for everyone using the finest traditional Italian ingredients and imported Sicilian olive oil. Appetising antipasti options include garlic bread, veal, antipasto di casa and bruscetta; enough to open your appetite to following courses. Main course offerings include pasta, pizza, al forno, salads and soup; pizza options come as calzone or a classic flat base topped with anything from parma ham, spinach, anchovies, mushrooms and other options including ‘The Tialini’; a bespoke option consisting of tomato sauce, ham, buffalo mozzarella, parmesan and truffle oil. Pasta and Al forno come complete with spaghetti carbonara, bolognaise, macaroni cheese, gnocci with gorgonzola, mushroom risotto, lasagne and gratin.
To compete a fine Italian dining experience, the menu offers traditional and delicious desserts; tiramisu, panna cotta or gelato.
“The restaurant provides a waiter service; something quite modern in Germany. Waiters will talk you through the menu including ingredients, the client felt it was important for ingredients to be transparent, so that customers know that what they’re about to eat is good quality and made of fresh produce, despite the pace of the restaurant.”
Speaking to Premier Hospitality about the design of Tialini in Stuttgart, Marcel said:
“We are really happy that we managed to convince the client to use second hand furniture, it makes the atmosphere completely unique, and every piece is different rather than being repetitive. It’s important for us to invest in reusing products which are hardwearing. A lot of current restaurant chains have repetitive designs, especially in such a large area, so it was important for us to split the space into separate areas so that diners felt they were in a smaller, cosier Italian restaurant.”
Heller Designstudio used vintage Italian furniture for the interiors of Tialini, mainly for the seating. Each chair has been restored and replenished to create an individual piece, all of which Heller brought together in their groups with the aid of various lighting features.
The remainder of the interiors follow suit and are vintage inspired; mixtures of wood blends with leather benches and framed photographs and tables are topped with fresh flowers in milk bottles. The area has been made comfortable and inviting by the design team, taking away from the large area which it is situated in and welcoming with open arms those hoping for a delicious meal in a relaxed setting.
Although Tialini did not reach the shortlist of projects at The Restaurant and Bar Design Awards, the restaurant was part of the early nominations, within the category of Best European Restaurant.
