The promises made by Chef Pasquale Quitadamo to his guests come to fruition thanks to the ingredients used to prepare his savory culinary offerings. Zero kilometer food is at the base of our cuisine, much of which comes from Tenutaʼs very own farm, such as our organic oil and eggs and the fruits and vegetables grown in the garden. We also use organic flour from an ancient mill dating back to the 1600s which still grinds wheat with a water-powered wheel, in accordance to the ancient traditional methods passed down from generation to generation.
Chef Pasquale Quitadamo continues to fine tune his culinary skills with persistent enthusiasm under the precious guide of Michelin star Chef Pietro Leemann. Every night a vegetarian or vegan menu is featured, along with the standard menu, in order to satisfy every palate.
Simplicity, quality and creativity are the elements that summarize the attention we give in offering modern, healthy cuisine, without compromising on tradition or authenticity.
We prepare our own bread and pasta every day with Chef Pasquale rolling out each sheet of fresh pasta by hand. Tagliolini, tagliatelle, “spaghetti alla chitarra”and “maltagliati” are just some of the typical Italian delicacies we offer for dinner at our restaurant.
During the summer months, dinner by candlelight is served on the spacious, panoramic portico, surrounded by the fragrant flowers of our lush country garden. In the cooler months, guests can enjoy their dinner in the cozy dining room, in front of a warm fire.
In summertime, light lunches are served on the portico or in the garden between 12 and 2 oʼclock. Delight yourself with a tasty and appetizing dish from our menu of fresh, light and delicious options.
Breakfast is served in the shade of the covered porch from which you can drink in the stunning view of the Umbrian hills as they roll down towards the Tiber River Valley. Our special breakfast buffet boasts freshly baked breads and pastries, homemade jams, seasonal fruit and an assortment of local cheeses and cold cuts produced locally, in keeping with the areaʼs traditions.
At Ristorante La Canonica, the love and passion for cooking that is 100% Italian and tightly linked to the terroir meets its most authentic expression.
