In the heart of the Apulian Romanesque
The great variety of environmets gives the restaurant ana unique charm. The barrel-vaulted hall, the ancient stables, the white room overlooking the oak wood, the internal courtyard and the terraces during pleasant summer days are an integral part of an immersive and enveloping culinary experience.
Almonds, extra virgin olive oil, homemade pasta, wild herbs from the Murgia and the many products from the farm’s gardens are useful for culinary preparation based on freshness, seasonality and tradition.
OUR PASSION IS
THE BLANC MANGER
Intended not only as the famous almond cake but as a reference to the whole philosophy of eating well in medieval courts.
Almond pesto, fresh vegetables, fruit from our trees, meat combined with spices and jellies created by the chef himself characterize our dishes, a gourmet experience to be enjoyed slowly, a table that evokes the harmony and colors of landscapes. The dessert is based on the tasting of traditional sweets from the harsh but romantic land of Murgia: the rosata, the frangipane cake, the nougats are a triumph for the mouth thanks to the almond, the queen of a rare and precious pastry.
