The food is simple but of the highest quality and there are specials every day which adds to the joy of eating here. They even made me eggs and chips when I asked them - perfectly cooked in olive oil, of course!

Limit menu choices, but outstanding quality. Even special requests not on the menu are taken care of. Highly recommended!

We often eat here mainly for the lovely view from the terrace when it is warm enough to eat outside and for the warm welcome from Dario, the maitre d'. However the menu has never wowed us. Now there is a new chef and the food and presentation is excellent! Now all diners can sample the excellent home produced selection... More

The restaurant is something you should not miss! I haven't had the pleasure of meeting the chef, but the food quality, presentation and recipe originality are on a level of a Michelin star cook. The maître Dario is really good at his job, takes the time to explain whatever you need and always finds a perfect wine to match your... More

A foodies dream holiday!

Followed a Italian cooking workshop here which was amusing and useful. The chef, Christian, is a patient guy and explains all the secrets of the Italian kitchen in a relaxed manner and with good humour. That workshop was absolutely the best! However, during the evening we stayed for dinner and the food was not all that good. Some food was... More

Had the distinct impression that the front of house and cooking was very average - semi-professional team. Did not have a memorable meal at the restaurant. The web-site was slick but the food delivery was not as expected. Food was relatively expensive for what i experienced.

Description
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 Luigi Incrocci 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, maestro Dario Bogani. 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.
