Italian in Linz

Chic Herberstein comprises a Japanese-style lounge with a sushi bar, an ivy-draped garden and a glamorous Italian restaurant. Brick vaults and clever backlighting set the scene for Björn Laubner's pared-down Italian dishes, such as beef fillet with tagliatelle, pan-seared cod with broccoli and cauliflower, and pumpkin ravioli with spinach and parmesan – all beautifully cooked and presented.
