Simplicity is a must when mastering the subtle techniques of fine cooking. Simplicity means only the essentials, and the quality of fresh produce. It means tradition infused with creative intuition.
It is hardly surprising, therefore, that the sensuous dining experiences of L’Olivaia Restaurant prove that an excellent Olive Oil can radically transform the taste and quality of a meal. So why not discover this first-hand? You have two choices: the “Live Olive Oil” menu or the “Olive Oil and Tradition” menu.
A slow approach is the chief feature of Villa Campesti’s kitchen. Here, slow cooking and low temperatures release the most intense flavors of food. Slow is applied to many aspects of our food: homemade bread is left to rise slowly, and there is no rush in the creation of jams, preserves, and honey.
Our restaurant uses only fresh seasonal foods that come either directly from our estate or from nearby farms that practice free-range breeding. Quality is the prime element of our cuisine.
The wisdom of Tuscan cuisine lies in the use of vegetables to create unforgettable recipes. That is why we offer, alongside meat and fish, vegetarian dishes created with organic grains, and fruit and vegetables from our farm.
It is not difficult to find a list of good local wines. A list, however, of new talents in wine making is something special. Selected by our wine scout, these up-and-coming wines are a feature that will make your visit to our Restaurant worthwhile.
Unforgettable rendezvous are easy to come by at L’Olivaia Restaurant. Make a reservation for one of our “exploration of taste” menus that wed excellent Olive Oil with unusual ingredients: Olive Oil and beer, Olive Oil and chocolate, fish combined with exotic fruit and Olive Oil. The result? Try it and discover if it is true love.
