Within the Esdra estate agri-spa located in the Liri Valley, you’ll find a restaurant open to the public, not only to the guests of the estate. More than just a restaurant, here we’ve created a setting for you to enjoy a true multi-sensory experience, in line with the rest of the activities offered at the estate. From our indoor dining room which seats 30 people, or from our outdoor veranda overlooking the pool and the oak forest which seats roughly 60 people, you’ll have the opportunity to savour dishes that originate from a philosophy which brings to the forefront the products of our territory. Indeed, the ingredients used are all grown directly on our farm within a botanical garden managed only using traditional methods, while fully respecting the environment.
Sustainable catering is one of the many strengths of the Esdra estate: our a la carte menu offers typical local dishes revisited and given a fresh creative twist by our chefs Francesco Capirchio and Francesco Palombo. The former, a 1981 graduate, is the Executive Chef who brings to the table a notable experience (he opened the restaurant Lo Stuzzichino, in Campodimele, at only 18) which focuses around the development of local production and the rediscovery of traditional cuisine. His genuine doughs are the icing on the cake that has given Francesco Capirchio recognitions from Gambero Rosso and Slow Food. Francesco Palombo, on the other hand, a 1985 graduate, can boast his experience as an intern in the renowned Relais & Châteaux and his obtaining a scholarship from the culinary establishment Coquis – l’Ateneo Italiano della Cucina, in Rome. His philosophy is based on simplicity: few quality ingredients worked in a manner that preserves their authenticity. With many years of experience in the field, both chefs bring forth not only rich flavors, but also the distinct aroma and the diverse appearance of every single ingredient. Each ingredient is grown in a specific manner, also in line with morphological characteristics: the fertilizers and the methods used derive from ancient crops, light years away from today’s intensive and industrialized agriculture. In this place embraced by nature, almost as a mother would her child, we make it possible for you to discover the best of our local and national culinary treasures, through the vision of sustainability and authenticity to be passed down for generations.
To beautifully accompany each dish, our Liri Valley restaurant offers a wine list which consists of a selection of the most important local labels: the excellence of the Lazio region is the only choice. The quality, courtesy and professionalism of our staff, make up the frame of a gastronomic experience nothing short of first-class and to be slowly savored in an exclusive setting.
