A bigger splash

Given the fact that half of Hollywood seems to have headed out to the shores of Italy’s Lake Como since George and Amal Clooney rocked up, it was only a matter of time before a high-end Japanese eatery sprang up in the area to feed all those hungry little west coast mouths. Cue Moya restaurant in Mariano Comense, over 1000m2 over two floors, designed by Italian architect Maurizio Lai. It’s the internal lighting that’s the star of the show here, with emerald coloured illuminated backdrops and lit glass dividers that create waterfall effects, leaving any punters still craving the delayed remake of the 1984 Splash amply compensated.
