The Palmaria Restaurant, located in Porto Venere, boasts a magnificent view of the village and Palmaria Island. It’s about 50 meters from the small port where the ferries leave for Cinque Terre and the other magnificent towns of the Ligurian Riviera di Levante. Palmaria Restaurant wants to represent an opportunity for the entire area, a true hub of gastronomic culture, capable of generating new ideas and attracting different experiences. Following local tradition, but with an open eye towards the horizon outlined by our beautiful sea, the gourmet treat of Palmaria is intended to be a point of arrival for different cultures.
"The preference for light cooking, the ability to restore the purity of the product without frying and the choice of top quality organic ingredients,” explains Chef Francesco Parravicini, “will remain our strong point. The expansion of the vegetarian menu and the gluten-free options will welcome the excellence of the neighboring regions. The Tuscan- Emilian Apennines and the innlands of Liguria, with their culinary pearls, will remain the main sources of inspiration. A tribute to the area that will give life to more eclectic recipes, such as the open ravioli stuffed with Livornese cacciuco, a heartfelt tribute to the neighboring regional cuisines.”
The Grand Tour in Italian culinary culture inspires the 2018 menu of Palmaria Restaurant.
The 2018 menu draws inspiration from the epic "Grand Tour", the long journey in continental Europe, particularly in Italy, undertaken by the European aristocracy from the seventeenth century and destined to increase their knowledge. A journey that could last from a few weeks to several months. During the Tour, young people learned about art, culture and lifestyle of the places visited. Italy, with its legacy of ancient Rome, became one of the most eagerly awaited places. Lord Byron himself crossed our country passing through Portovenere. The Grand Tour further includes the discovery of the extraordinary national culinary heritage and in this context the menu will include the celebration of great Italian dishes, created to perfection, and a real scouting of the finest quality ingredients. In the "à la carte" menu the "land and sea" combinations are the protagonists of the octopus, the anchovies and the "muscles", typical of the Spezzina and Ligurian tradition.
