Franco, the owner and also an expert gourmet creates sophisticated menus with ultra fresh fish like red mullet, tuna fish, bass and crayfish, prepared following some special recipes or even served raw seasoned with ‘extravergine’ cold-pressed olive oil produced by the estate’s own olive trees. The dishes are accompanied by strictly biological vegetables harvested in the farm’s vegetable garden, traditional local cheeses , cold meats and sausages and a choice of the most sought after Puglia wines.
At the end of the meal you may taste in addition to the by now famous ‘linoncello’ (alcoholic lemon beverage) a rare Puglia grappa produced with local grapes. From September to June La Valletta offers dinners, lunches and breakfasts for those who want to rediscover the taste of good meals.
