The story behind every one of my dishes begins with the search for quality ingredients and ends when it is served at the table. Every single dish has something to say about me, my culture and my traditions.
Scent, sight, texture, sound and flavour: only if each of the five senses is in harmony with the others will we have full control over what we are cooking and fully enjoy what we are eating.
I aim to offer a light cuisine based on a few simple ingredients, each of which represents the best of what the land I live on can provide; simple but intense flavours that make an indelible mark on the memory.
Evoking memories of their mothers’ and grandmothers’ kitchens in diners is one of the greatest emotions I can aspire for.
My wife, my daughter and I and the Ravera family have operated Ristorante Vescovado in the fifteenth-century halls of the former Bishop’s Palace in Noli (Savona) since 2009.
In the summer we move out of the palace’s frescoed halls overlooking the bay of Noli and onto the magnificent building’s patios over the sea.
The fragrance of herbs and the sweeping view up and down the coast make this a truly unique location which diners enjoy from the time they take the panoramic lift to the cable-car providing access to the restaurant directly from the street.
Alternatively, guests can walk a short path from the medieval hamlet of Noli to the palace door.
A place where history and nature come together in a timeless work of art.
Every day from 7.30 pm.
Saturday and Sunday also open for lunch.
The Vescovado Restaurant is based in the historical building of the Hotel Palazzo Vescovile, in an environment of ancient charm, with high-level services and facilities.
