“Il
Ghiotto”
Il Ghiotto [ghiot-to]: the one who likes to eat well (Italian explanatory dictionary)
Gabriele D’Annunzio (1863-1938), one of the most emblematic names in Italian literature, has been appreciated all over the world
for his magical poems and prodigious prose, including two outstanding masterpieces, Terra Vergine and Il Piacere.
What many people don’t know is that our Gabriele D’Annunzio was a great gourmand. He believed that by keeping a healthy and
balanced diet he would enhance his spiritual and mental self so that he would find the inspiration needed for others to enjoy his
work. Nicknamed ‘il ghiotto’ by family and friends we respectfully honor Gabriele with this title for our menu.
Since we have been given the liberty to use ‘terra vergine’ as the name of our restaurant, ‘il ghiotto’ as the name of our menu and
‘il piacere’ as the name of our wine list, we hope you realize that our moral duty towards the one that has been, Gabriele
D’Annunzio, to keep and follow his same ideas about the wonders of food.
Aside from the unique atmosphere, you will experience with us as well the excellence of our service, knowing that all of our dishes
are made following centuries old recipes using the finest organic produce imported from Abruzzo for you and all of our customers
to enjoy.
Palle cac’e ova, “special croquette”, created from cheese out of cow’s milk, hand milked by the Abruzzesi farmers in the heart of the
Appennino mountains, and the true taste behind our best cheeses.
The Arrosticini, Gabriele’s favorite, charcoaled lamb skewers, signature dish of the Abruzzo region and the restaurant, cooked from
the meat of lambs that have been fed and bred on the hills and mountains of Abruzzo, delivered straight to your table, obviously
through the kitchen …, so you can be the judge of the unique flavour.
Having said that, forget about the outside surroundings and let us :
WELCOME YOU TO ABRUZZO!!! …..
FYI - no visa is needed!!!
