Trezoro -Three floors of ‘treasured’ delights

Nestled within the hustling stretch of the city Surat, Gujarat, this spacious 4,500 sq.ft is a sanctuary for connoisseurs of ‘authentic’ Italian cuisine. ‘Trezoro’ – a treasure of food, spanning over three floors is a testament to the power of rooted design ethos and celebration of ‘re-collections’ finely reflected and executed by Studio M Design Principal Designers Moiz Faizulla and Samad Shaikh. An aging residential space, now stands reborn as the vision to rekindle the spirit of the old while welcoming the new, all within a cocoon of a ‘home’ and comfort food. A relic of the past, the venue now stands transformed into a harmonious blend of nostalgia and modernity.
