Our vegetable gardens near the headquarters and restaurant in Imperia, are arranged on very narrow strips, typical of Liguria, 200 meters above sea level and facing the sea. That of Civezza (1500 square meters, 300 meters above sea level) and that of Prelà Castello (about 600 square meters at about 400 meters above sea level) are arranged on a single strip.
We literally cultivate everything, out of passion and curiosity, so as to guarantee to our restaurant products that are always fresh, of the highest quality and above all biological.
Every year we plant about 15 different qualities of tomatoes, small or large, round or datterini, red or yellow, orange or black: our tomato salads are a triumph of colors and, of course, of taste. We grow 4 different types of aubergines and each quality has its own particular recipe.
We are still in the old way: we do not use pesticides or chemicals, weed out weeds by hand, so that zucchini tastes like courgette and pepper like pepper. Sorry, but it is an added value.
