MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

One MICHELIN Star: High quality cooking, worth a stop!

Just a few kilometres outside Manduria, the capital of primitive wine, this restaurant is part of the Vinilia Wine Resort, which occupies an imposing early-20C castle surrounded by splendid grounds planted with mature olive trees. The restaurant is the jewel in the crown of this fine hotel, with its bright, airy dining room and large windows offering views of its outdoor dining space (highly recommended in fine weather). The furnishings are modern in design and the cleverly arranged lighting adds to the charm of the setting. With plenty of experience at leading restaurants behind him, chef Pietro Penna has returned home to his native region, to which he pays tribute in his cuisine. He makes full use of locally sourced produce, often using fruit and vegetables grown in the restaurant’s own kitchen garden in his modern and imaginative dishes. Three tasting menus are available, one of which is entirely vegetarian. 

Gastronomy & Sustainability


"Photovoltaic panels provide both the resort and the restaurant with their own independent supply of energy. The same philosophy has resulted in the use of recycled materials in the restaurant, for example in the famous lights which hang above the tables illuminating the chef’s beautiful dishes. In addition to using vegetables grown in its own kitchen garden (where rainwater and compost feed the crops) and its own extra virgin olive oil, the restaurant has established a network of local fish and meat suppliers, with particular attention paid to the use of seasonal produce."
