la loggia ristorante

La Loggia restaurant serves fresh, modern Mediterranean interpretations of traditional Southern Italian flavour combinations. Chef Villani and rising star sous chef Alberto Wengert, awarded the 2019 Birra Moretti Grand Cru Chef Prize, have together crafted a menu for guests, with nature and locally grown vegetables at its heart. The menu takes its cue from the Campanian seasons and especially from the micro-climate of our Ancient Samnium territory, where for thousands of years, the endless sun, spring waters and rich terroir have been harnessed to create uniquely perfumed and flavoursome produce. Frequent guests of our resort will recognise that a number of gourmet dishes served at the Loggia, such as greater amberjack carpaccio with citrus and buffalo stracciata with langoustine and Mussel 'all'impepata' risotto, have been inherited from the hotel's Michelin starred restaurant, La Locanda del Borgo. 

The "Cellar"

Aquapetra’s wine collection is curated by Head Sommelier, Lucia Immacolata Migliaccio, a passionate supporter of local wine makers. The cellar holds more than 700 different labels spanning indigenous varieties such Greco di Tufo, Fiano, Falanghina, Aglianico as well as lesser known gems such as Agostinella and Coda di Volpe, grand Italian wines including Barolo, Brunello, Amarone and Sassicaia, as well as a range of international wines and Champagnes.

LE RISERVE DELLA LOCANDA

The result of dedicated research, Le Riserve della Locanda is a rare collection of 100 sought after vintages from the greatest Italian winemakers, now available in La Locanda del Borgo and La Loggia restaurants and lounge areas, or in the intimacy of your private residence.
The collection is a journey through the history of Italian wine making, including Brunello Biondi Santi (1987, 1988 and 1989), rare Sassicaia, Incisa della Rocchetta (1996 and 199), Tignanello by Antinori (1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000), superlative Barolo vintages by Giuseppe Contratto and the Sicilian exemplar, Duca Enrico (1987, 1988 and 1990).
After resting horizontally for extended periods, the bottles are carefully removed from their shelves and returned to an upright position where they must rest for at least 24 hours before being opened. To ensure these wines are correctly prepared ahead of your arrival, we kindly request that orders for Le Riserve bottles be made with at least 48 hours’ notice.

Hosted by Francesca Martusciello, professional Sommelier (AIS 2001), the trips include visits to the Sannio’s best wineries, walks in the countryside with vineyard picnics, wine tastings and visits to local artisans and producers, trips to some of Italy’s most beautiful towns and visits to the monuments and museums that hold the Sannio’s priceless UNESCO heritage. 

The Gardens

Our 1,500 olive trees provide our restaurant with delicious extra virgin oil and we take great pride in our heady liquors and scrumptious peach, plumb and apricot preserves, made in accordance with time honoured recipes and the passing of the seasons.

In 2018, we look forward to commencing work on a series of greenhouses ad open air kitchen gardens, a big step towards becoming fully self-sufficient in terms of fruit, vegetables and herbs. An olive oil Frantoio and wine press will follow.

The greenhouses will be open for guests to wander through the scented plots and if they wish, join our green fingered team for the daily pick and prune.
