San Ottaviano’s restaurant offers its guests flavors of the estate harvested directly from its gardens, pastures, beehives, fields and olive orchards. The owners, Francesco and Hilary, invite you to feel at home in the old oil-mill-turned-restaurant or out on one of its two panoramic terraces. Their unique dishes have italo-american roots, making them unique to the area. Be assured, however, that they are made exclusively with fresh, local ingredients. Many of the recipes feature the estate’s secret ingredient: La Birra de’Neri. This craft beer is produced just a few steps from the restaurant using barley that is cultivated in the fields of the Cornia Valley below.
Leonardo Giarratano was born in the countryside where he and his family raised poultry and cultivated oil, grapes, fruit and vegetables on a 3-hectare plot. With these ingredients, they made many products from tomato sauce to fruit juice. It is from these experiences that Leonardo learned the flavours, aromas and tastes of genuine products. His cooking is simple; he loves aromatic herbs, dried fruit, legumes, but also the process of slow cooking, as was once the tradition, where the fire embraces the food and the flavours remain inside. Leonardo is a humble and genuine person, like his cuisine. Get to know his dishes and his smile at San Ottaviano.
