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.

“Amazing fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Fresh produce delivered daily and amazing olive oil. Try the molten chocolate olive oil cake... it is to die for!

“Semi-professional cooking and front of house.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Had the distinct impression that the front of house and cooking was very average - semi-professional team. Did not have a memorable meal at the restaurant.
The web-site was slick but the food delivery was not as expected.
Food was relatively expensive for what i experienced.
