The city's most elegant sunset spot
Word to the wise: The secret is out about SE.STO's spectacular panoramic views, so be sure to arrive at least an hour before sunset if you want an outdoor table.
With its prime riverside location atop the Westin Hotel, no-expense-spared furnishings, and lauded kitchen turning out inventive contemporary Italian, SE.STO would be a destination even without the view. But it's the 360-degree vista that people flock here for - all the rest is just a bonus.
If you're looking to splurge, book a table at the restaurant proper - the indoor room features a large central bar and gets buzzy in the evenings as the city's business set arrives for dinner. But we prefer a low-key option: arrive after lunch, sink into one of the outdoor terrace's comfy sofas, order Prosecco and snacks, and spend the afternoon simply soaking up the scene.
