Private events on the slopes of Etna with Michelin-starred restaurant

Elegant events at Shalai, designer boutique hotel in historic Etna mansion

The Pennisi family and the Shalai team are experienced in organizing small private events at the boutique hotel, or bigger events in the venues chosen by the client. It often happens that our clients want to organize events that would be too big to be hosted at the boutique hotel, but they do not want to go without the service and food offered by our Michelin star restaurant. This can be solved simply by calling us up and organizing a trip on location together at your chosen venue, in order to arrange the logistics, the menu, the types of service, and the concept of the event together. So from the moment of reception to the final toast and dessert, you will have our Shalai team by your side, ensuring you will receive the same attention you would be getting if you were dining at our restaurant. The elegance, the refined arrangements, the excellent ingredients, the unmistakable touch of our chef Giovanni Santoro and Shalai’s unique style will be your allies during your important moments.
