Calling all Italian cuisine lovers

The finest taste of Italy is being showcased in luxury hotels’ in-house restaurants

Borgo Santo Pietro- Tuscany, Italy 

On a 300-acre estate, Borgo Santo Pietro serves as a love letter to and from Tuscany. The lush property offers a real sense of home where luxury and nature coexist harmoniously, within its 22 rooms and suites, including 5 private pool homes. The Trattoria Sull’Albero and Borgo Saporium are fine dining establishments and are devoted to providing a seasonal farm-to-plate experience.

Under the spearhead of Chef Ariel Hagen, the estate uses farm products in an unconventional way with a creative approach, where traditional cooking methods and modern science converge. The menus, which are offered at Borgo Saporium honour the journey that begins with foraging at Borgo and ends with beguiling culinary techniques to achieve a fine-dining experience. The juxtaposition of delicate dishes with unexpectedly filling creations presents an emotional journey for the palate with ingredients that Mother Nature solely provides.

Hotel Vilòn- Rome, Italy 

Hotel Vilòn is located in a section of the majestic Palace Borghese, regarded as a masterpiece of architecture and embodies the elegance of 17th-century Rome, in a secluded area of the Borghese neighbourhood, at only a few steps from the Spanish Steps. Hotel Vilòn’s in-house restaurant is named after Princess Adelaide Borghese and evoking global influences, Mediterranean cuisine, and authentic echoes of Roman tradition, the restaurant pays homage to Italian hospitality.

At Adelaide, dining is a whole gastronomic experience. The Executive Chef, Gabriele Muro, proposes a delicate yet rich cuisine with references to traditional Italian dishes in general, all reinterpreted with skill and enriched with spicy notes. Neapolitan by birth, after adopting the craft of teaching at the Gambero Rosso Academy, he became Roman by heart. His signature dishes bring an emphasis on island-derived foods and products that combine modern culinary methods and lifestyle influences.
