the Cuisine


The flavours of the traditional cuisine of Basilicata and Puglia are interpreted and revisited in a masterly fashion by the Grand Casale Chef. He is able to restore, through his creations, the greatest values of the Mediterranean diet.

Dishes are prepared using mostly locally produced ingredients in the traditional and jealously-kept recipes handed down for centuries.


Fresh handmade pasta, fresh vegetables, and wild mushrooms, wheat from the area, extra virgin olive oil, meat, cold cuts, cheese and fresh dairy products directly supplied by local farmers are the basic ingredients of our cuisine.

Being so close to the sea allows the making of delicious fish based menus.

A wood oven in the outside yard indulges the making of traditional peasant cuisine.


Particular needs will be satisfied by directly contacting the chef.

In warm weather meals can be served outdoors among the scents and colors of the Murgia landscape.

The house cellar provides a wide choice of wines suitable for complementing any menu.

Specific menus are available for vegetarians and people with celiac disease.
