Ingredients and the Taste of Tradition
We select the best ingredients in our territory, focusing on the choice of local suppliers for fruit and vegetables, breads, meats and cold cuts. In our garden we grow herbs, decorative flowers, berries, and when nature permits some types of vegetables. From the sea we get the best fish and shellfish, always trying to match them with local vegetables to calibrate the environmental impact of each dish. Eating well this one of the pleasures of life, do it with care and responsibility makes it even more enjoyable ..
