The "olivaia" restaurant at Villa Campestri Olive Oil resort will satisfy your culinary wishes with no need to go anywhere else, of course unless you like crowds and pizza. There is no pizza here and certainly no anonymous crowds being served mediocre Italian food. Olivaia...More

We arrived at the Villa Campestri for a three-night stay and decided to try the restaurant, since we didn't want to navigate the 3 km. road down the hillside in the dark to explore the restaurants in nearby Vicchio--and we're glad that we did! We...More

We had a wonderful dinner seated outside on the veranda. The food was excellent, the local wine was perfect and service was spot on.

The food is simple but of the highest quality and there are specials every day which adds to the joy of eating here. They even made me eggs and chips when I asked them - perfectly cooked in olive oil, of course!

Limit menu choices, but outstanding quality. Even special requests not on the menu are taken care of. Highly recommended!

We often eat here mainly for the lovely view from the terrace when it is warm enough to eat outside and for the warm welcome from Dario, the maitre d'. However the menu has never wowed us. Now there is a new chef and the...More

Description
The masterpiece of Villa Campestri cuisine: olive oil on canvas. Nothing paints the unique atmosphere of Villa Campestri more memorably than the cuisine of our Restaurant, L’Olivaia. The leading protagonist here is the extra-virgin olive oil produced by the Villa’s ancient olive groves. With its deep colour and lingering taste with notes of artichoke and almond, this oil inspires the Chef Luigi Incrocci to create dishes of absolute excellence in a symphony of flavours skilfully combining innovation and tradition, simplicity and refinement. Many of the ingredients employed come from our gardens and organic orchards. Our wine list offers an ample selection with classic vintages alongside some innovative suggestions selected by our wine talent scout, maestro Dario Bogani. The suggestive atmosphere of the Restaurant with its polychromatic caissoned wooden ceiling, carved shelving, stone window frames and terracotta floors is the ideal setting for theme dinners, renaissance dinners, and olive oil, wine, or cheese tastings.
