Healthy First.

Food is our fuel and what we eat can modify what we are.
Our daily decisions on what we buy and cook affects the world, but it touches first the health of our bodies.
So we take it very seriously.
Even if it’s just few days with us, we hope to give away healthy habits and inspiring recipes.

We grow most of our food

we kindly ask you two minutes of your time to read those important words from us

What fancy restaurants or Michelin Stars Chefs propose as a Luxury experience, it’s daily life for us.

We take care of our land: we plant, cut, water, plan, try to innovate, experience, struggle, succeed.
What you’ll find in our dishes is also a part of our story.

A story of passion, ethics, dreams.
A story that tries to join what could seem superficial like beauty with deeper subjects like health or environment.

A story that tries to go beyond the idea of a “restaurant subjected to Trip Advisor’s reviews” and looks more into proposing healthy eating habits.

We continuously communicate our vision before, while and after the guests’ stay.
We propose to look further the “plate judgement” common in the modern Masterchef world and simply (and more richly)  remember the basics of why we eat.

Key Principles we follow

From our gardens, as much as possible to have the best freshness.
The most we can, we buy local. We are a farm and we support farmers.
Most of our food comes from Umbria.
We look for the best quality we can.
Seasonal preferred.
We do it with ethics, genuine and honesty.

What we care that you know

Please, don’t consider us “a restaurant”. In fact we are not a restaurant. 
We cook for 10-12-14, max 20 people; that clearly state our “house-size”, therefore  our service is warm and caring, but always simple.
We would like to be considered your “grandma”, the one that takes care of your health and cook things with love. Not a Chef.
We try to auto produce as much as possible – like bread, yogurt, cakes, jam – to keep the list of ingredients as healthy as possible (no preservatives, less sugar, etc), please take this in consideration.
Be open to new flavours or less addictive food: when you take away mass production products rich in additives or sugar you could feel a difference in taste.
We think that’s good for you.
The pictures in this page are dishes plated by us, but we also propose buffets.
