Bombana started Octavium and appointed his proud protégée Silvio Armani as the Head Chef. Octavium means “8” in Latin, so it resonates with Bombana’s other restaurant 8½ Otto e Mezzo. Everything in the restaurant are hand-picked by Bombana himself, including the birch tree bark wall décor imported from northern Europe, and the Cassina Cab chair by famous Italian designer Mario Bellini.
