The masterpiece of Villa Campestri cuisine: Olive Oil on canvas.
Nothing paints the unique atmosphere of Villa Campestri more memorably than the cuisine of our Restaurant, L’Olivaia. The leading protagonist here is the extra-virgin olive oil produced by the Villa’s ancient olive groves. With its deep colour and lingering taste with notes of artichoke and almond, this Oil inspires the Chef Luca Francione to create dishes of absolute excellence in a symphony of flavours skilfully combining innovation and tradition, simplicity and refinement.
Many of the ingredients employed come from our gardens and organic orchards. Our wine list offers an ample selection with classic vintages alongside some innovative suggestions selected by our wine talent scout. The suggestive atmosphere of the Restaurant with its polychromatic caissoned wooden ceiling, carved shelving, stone window frames and terracotta floors is the ideal setting for theme dinners, renaissance dinners, and Olive Oil, wine, or cheese tastings.
Our proposals provide a thorough search in the direction of enhancing these incredible olive oils of great excellence in various culinary combinations. We have developed two different themes with various suggestions:
Oil goes live: the art of cooking with Olive Oil
without fire, between cooked and raw
Olive Oil and its Traditions.
