The Cuisine

The Grand Tour in Italian culinary culture inspires menu of Palmaria Restaurant.

The 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.

Palmaria Restaurant, which is part of the Italian Celiac Association (AIC), is attentive to the specific needs of its customers and also offers gluten-free menus. The complete exclusion of gluten from the diet is not easy to achieve as the grains that are not allowed are found in many dishes of Italian culinary tradition, but the awareness and professionalism of our team will be able to offer a menu specially designed for the celiac.
