Luciano Villani
Executive Chef, Locanda del Borgo
Our kitchen has been led by our Michelin starred Chef, Luciano Villani since 2009, rising star and winner of the 2018 Liverini prize, awarded by the prestigious Guida della Reppublica, to the chef whose cuisine best expresses and elevates local produce. 

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. 

Dietary requirements

We pay minute attention to the quality of the ingredients we use at Aquapetra, believing strongly that a happy tummy is the foundation of person's wellbeing.
Please contact us at info@aquapetra.com if you have any specific dietary requirements. We are more than happy to tailor our menu or create new dishes especially for you


Our selection stems in the main, from our great love of the indiginous grapes and vintages that represent the history and traditions of our territory and country. 

All of our wines, regional or international, are tasted and enjoyed, before being chosen for our cellar, where they rest at their optimum ambient temperature and atmospheric conditions. 

Just a short distance from Aquapetra, we cultivate a variety of grapes and make our own wines (Greco di Tufo, Aglianico, Taurasi), just a few of the 400 different wines that we currently hold in our cellar, alongside Italy's most sought after vintages.  

Additional Services

  • Tasting menus paired with select wine
  • Private wine tastings
  • Guided tours to the vinyards of the Sannio and Campania
  • Wine consultancy, purchase, storage and / or forwarding service

The "Cellar"

Beneath our restaurant, we are gradually restoring an underground complex comprising what was once a substantial lime kiln and vaulted rooms. There are rumoured to be 3km tunnels fanning out from the main cellar, carved from the limestone bedrock sometime in the distant past. So far, we have recovered 200 sqm of these underground spaces and is here that we store our precious vintages at a naturally perfect temperature.  

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. 


Set over several indoor and outdoor levels, our bar and adjoining bijoux bistro offer laid back dining options including fresh summer salads and classics such as our legendary club sandwich.
The drinks menu comprises classic and contemporary cocktails from the Italian and international canon, executed to perfection, a range of superb local, Italian and international wines by the glass, over 700 wine labels by the bottle, organic loose leaf infusions, Illy coffee, artisinal beers...and to bring to a close a wonderful meal, sublime liquors paired with indulgent desserts, carefully prepared by our restaurant.
