Casa Marcial is a flagship of Spanish cuisine and the gastronomic emblem of Asturias. The restaurant has earned two Michelin Stars and three Repsol Suns as well as widespread recognition both in Spain and abroad. Its singularity is also based on its incomparable environment; the rural charm of the family home, its attractive décor and of course its gastronomic riches. The cuisine of Esther and Nacho Manzano is an extension of their understanding of life, squeezing together the place and its tradition to form a springboard for the creation of their own culinary language.
As head chef of Casa Marcial**, Matteo Pierazzoli is involved in the management and organisation of the kitchens of Esther and Nacho’s restaurants as well as the selection and training of cooks for the group.
