Description: Cascina Capuzza was refurbished to provide a simple yet well looked after place ideal for wine lovers and people who enjoy good food where it is possible to taste the wines produced by our family and also try traditional, local cuisine. The focus of the dishes created by the Cascina is on the goodness of the raw ingredients used; knowing how to select the right quality and seasonality is one of the most important tasks for a good chef. Traditional, local recipes (which are characterised by simplicity) are our speciality. The cuisine focuses on gourmet local products, with particular importance being placed on matching wines produced on the same estate. We only serve wines produced from our vineyards which surround our company. There are always various different “tasting” menus available, which include several courses and, of course, several possible wine combinations, we also organise tasting courses and themed evenings. The original building has two taverns, dating back to the 1400s, then in the 1700s and the 1800s extensions were added.Small rooms, porches, old stables and a large barn loft are now used as the dining rooms. During the summer it is possible to dine outside in the cool park under the ancient mulberry trees.

I am a guide of intimate food and wine tours in Italy. My job is to find memorable Italian meals for my American clients. I stumbled upon Casina Capuzza by accident. It was a very lucky day. Nestled in the vineyards of Lugana grapes, near the tower of San Martino, is first class eats. The kitchen produces fresh and seasonal ingredients in innovative recipes that brings sheer joy to a food lover. A large complex of interesting dining rooms and decorations, with fabulous out-door spaces are all wonderful in and of itself, but the food, and the wine are really exceptional. Go casual, go dressed, but be sure to go! Experience it yourself, and you will be a fan, too!

Since years we are enjoying the great kitchen and atmosphere at Cascina Capuzza as a family. A scenery drive to the location in the middle of vinyards close to the tower (torre) near Sirmione starts the kulinary journey at Selva Capuzza. The whole experience begins with a warm and personal welcome (Spumante, Olives, Cheese etc) by the staff and owners/managers in the nice atmosphere of the old building that hosts the cosy restaurant. Starters (Antipasti) are an amazing collection of local hams and salamis and "surprises from the kitchen". Thats followed by homemade pasta with seasonal fillings - served fresh and warm to the table. If you made it until here you will be amazed by the main course from the huge BBQ. Dont leave until you tasted the homemade sweets (Dolce) - they go very well "sweeet wine". If you stay at the "borgo" (appartements in historical building) its just a foodwalk to the Cascina adn a 15 mins drive to the lake of Garda. Absolutely worthwhile to go!
