Driven by a deep fascination for exploring diverse cultures, Pisanu seeks direct culinary inspiration from the sources themselves by immersing in traditions and experiences.

Pisanu takes charge of managing the restaurant’s operations and prioritizing the delivery of exceptional service to all patrons, a core pillar of Noble 33’s ethos. Through a menu that places flavour at its forefront, Pisanu curates a delightful menu consisting of the most high-quality and elevated ingredients while thoughtfully accommodating a variety of dietary restrictions.
At Casa Madera, dining is an art form that invokes all of the senses as certain dishes are prepared tableside, adding a visual and theatrical element. Adding to the gastronomic adventure is an impressive cocktail program consisting of seasonal and fresh ingredients, perfect for any dish pairing.
