Dinner before the Show

Updated: May 9, 2023

Enjoy an exceptional dining Experience at Sassella, before The Lensic

Sassella Italian Restaurant is the perfect pairing for an evening at a Lensic Performance. In addition to working at two Michelin Star restaurants in Europe, Lombardy native Chef Cristian Pontiggia has received several awards from La Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, an international gastronomic society. The Italian government recognizes him as a Master Chef, and he holds a culinary degree that certifies him as a Doctor of Enogastronomy.

Make your dinner reservations, and purchase Lensic Event tickets directly from this Self-Guided Experience.
