The restaurant of Venetian cuisine IL Palazzo is located in the right wing of the Sheremetyevo Palace. The well-known Petersburg decorator Andrey Dmitriev “composed” the interior, in which the brutal texture of brickwork, coarse metal and baroque glass lamps are skillfully combined. The high ceiling is draped with luxurious fabrics brought from Venice. Chandeliers from colored Murano glass and chairs dressed in pop art covers with an exaggerated image of peonies were also bought there. A staircase entirely made of ferrous metal leads to the second floor where the chill-out is located. The walls are partly plastered and covered with paintings, the plot of which is borrowed from the paintings of the 19th century Venetian artists.
