Good food for good food’s lovers
New culinary experiences from the heart of Chiavenna to your kitchen
Matlab is Chiavenna’s culinary laboratory where we combine selected ingredients, years of work experience in the kitchen and our passion for quality and for making culinary creations every day.
Our food is always fresh and natural and it combines tradition and innovation.

What’s in our dishes
The secret behind every recipe is the attention we give to every single detail, from the laboratory to the
counter. It is our idea of food that makes it special and it is what you will find in every dish
to share it with everyone.
Highly selected ingredients
We research the ingredients that we use with extreme care.
We select them in local gardens or by small producers, as in the case of the zero-miles vegetables, fruit preserves and our flour produced with corn
grown in Valtellina.
Only fresh and natural ingredients, to get the best of nature.
Innovative cooking methods
We use sophisticated cooking techniques that preserve the taste and organoleptic qualities of food: low
temperature cooking, vacuum cooking and pasteurisation that give us long term and 100% natural
products, without adding preservatives.
Tradition mixed with innovation
In our laboratory we cook the dishes of the Italian and local tradition, following original recipes.
At the same time, we like experimenting brand new tastes and making new culinary creations in
order to satisfy everyone’s palate.
All our passion
Every day we put hard work and passion in what we do.
Researching the best products, preparing our best food, serving every client with kindness and bringing our cuisine to social events are the reasons of our pride and satisfaction.
We make something good and we want to share it with everyone.
Ready meals and fresh food
Every day we have takeaway meals ready for you to heat up and enjoy in a few minutes thanks to our special vacuum packages. There is a wide choice of starters, main courses and side dishes from the tradition of Italy and Valtellina. We also have fish specialities and recipes from Thai and oriental cuisine. In addition, on our counter you can find a huge selection of fresh food made with high-quality ingredients, homemade sauces and quiches, as well as the best Italian and international food, local wines and liquors.
