The kitchen

The three pillars of our cuisine: Memory, sustainability and the use of local ingredients, fostering artisanal produce.


The choice of food and wines

Local, genuine, seasonal. This is how Chef Giacomo Sacchetto defines his cuisine. A formula nurtured through memory and constant research. With his head in tradition and his feet firmly grounded in the world.

“From all my professional and travelling experience – he says – I have brought with me influences, tastes and fragrances. Today, I translate them into dishes that value, first of all, the raw ingredients that come from our garden, our trees and a guaranteed supply chain of artisans, who we discover and select on a local basis, especially here in Lessinia. This region, in which we find ourselves, has extraordinary products and is, in large part, relatively unknown”.


The restaurant

The restaurant is located in a completely new concept space (the project is by architect Silvia Bettini), built with burnished steel, partly taken from the recovery of old railway sleepers, and large windows overlooking the Valpantena. It overlooks the bio-dynamic garden, the vineyards and the olive grove, which provide most of the raw produces for the kitchen.
The layout of the room allows guests to enjoy large spaces and different experiences: overlooking the valley there are in fact six round tables, a rectangular table placed in a reserved room and a desk on the side pass, which allows a maximum of 4 guests to taste the dishes in close contact with the brigade. The latter will not be available until the distancing measures due to the current pandemic are in effect. The spaces between the tables are such as to allow maximum security and confidentiality.
During the summer, a panoramic terrace will be available, located on the left of the new structure.


Menu

Our range of dishes is inspired by tradition and flavours that stimulate the memory, all served in a modern and creative way, the fruit of the chef and his team's continuous innovative research.

Our catering package consists of a tasting menu characterised by strong ties to the territory, called “In Viaggio con la Cru” ( A Journey with the Cru), comprising 6 distinct courses, as well as welcome bites and small patisserie, to which 3 other dishes, concocted on the spur of the moment by the chef, can be added.

“Sweet-UP!” is the pastry shop’s playful proposal to tease and educate our taste buds.

Accompanying the creative line is a tantalising menu of revisited dishes, midway between tradition and innovation: LaCru Re-LAB. Soon, a menu based on the produce of the vegetable garden will be added.

Under the watchful eye of our Giampiero, the cellar features locally produced wines together with a wide selection of national labels and many classic and international varieties. We also offer a carefully selected mini-list of spirits.
