We bet our lives on Villa Crespi. We took it over in 1999. we had nothing and the determination to make it work. It became our home, a hotel in Moorish style with 6 rooms, 8 suites, a sauna and spa. It is on the shores of Lake Orta surrounded by a park sloping down to the lake. It became our home, a hotel in Morish style with 6 rooms, 8 suites and th Chandra Deva Wellness Suite, on the shore of Lake Orta, surrounded by a park high above the lake.
My cuisine tells my story, I marry traditionally Campania dishes with the Piedmontese flavours that greeted my arrival here when I was little more than a boy. My menu varies with the seasons, alternating well known dishes with new journeys through flavours which I decide to embark on with my brigade.
I have entrusted my kitchen to Vincenzo Manicone who has worked with me in Villa Crespi for four years. You will find the same philosophy there as in a star-awarded restaurant but with informality more typical of a family.
