Catch your own octopus in a peaceful dawn drift across our rocky shore then bring it to our kitchens where Chef Vito will be delighted to show you how to create the traditional peppery pignata octopus stew. Or catch yourself a fish on a deeper sea expedition from our private marina. With this fresh produce Chef Vitoo’s favourite approach is the simplest, barbecued in a salt crust and served with extra virgin olive oil and lemon. But simplicity needs perfecting, so we promise an enriching experience.
Classes can be tailormade for vegetarians or vegans and your delicious homemade lunch can be paired with local wines, a white Fiano or Primitivo rose, to be enjoyed on the terrace in the sunshine.
