Escape into rustic simplicity

Agriturismo Piccapane was an escape into rustic simplicity. Tucked away in the countryside, this retreat may be a bit off the beaten path, but it's well worth the journey.

The food at Piccapane is both good and genuine. While it may not offer a fine dining experience, it delivers a rustic charm that I recommend experiencing. The authenticity of the place adds to the overall appeal, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a break from the ordinary.

🐶🐱A noteworthy aspect is the endearing presence of the farm's dogs and cats. Throughout your stay, these furry companions provide delightful company and add an extra layer of warmth to the rustic ambiance.

New mgmt. No longer exclusively vegan. Good food. Service needs work.

Before I start, I should mention I have been looking forward to checking out this place for a while, but due to being a bit far out in the countryside I’d never had the opportunity before now. As I found out, the restaurant changed management very recently (2 weeks before I went). Unfortunately, it is no longer vegan-only. Giuseppe still runs the agriturismo itself, but the restaurant is now administered separately, and there’s a new chef, who does use animal products (the risotto, for example, had butter in it – I’m just glad I came with a friend who knew what was up, because I might have ended up ordering it).

There are still enough vegan options, but just be aware that a particular dish might not be. The food, despite everything, was good, healthy, genuine, and creative. I had a rice noodle wrap with a sort of peanut-tahini(?) sauce as an appetizer (which could’ve used more flavour – soy sauce did the trick, upon request), a chickpea coconut milk curry (which was fantastic), and quinoa-encrusted tofu with lemon and a side of veggies. The self-produced house wine, at least the batch we got, was a bit lacklustre. The dessert (a nice chocolate cake) made up for it, though.

Although I tried to cut them some slack, firstly, because of the change of management and secondly, because they were only two, one waiter, and the chef, I couldn’t help but be annoyed at the inefficiency of the service. We called a few days ahead and they provided us with a menu which, in the end, did not correspond 100% with what was available. I was very much looking forward to trying the ravioli with almond ricotta, which were waved in front our hungry faces, before it was announced that there would only be limited portions and in the end they were completely unavailable. We were a big group, but because of miscommunications between the kitchen and the server it still took at least half an hour to finally be able to place our order, and it kept leaving things to be desired (the round of coffee came with one (1) spoon for the sugar… to share between 6 people...)

Needless to say, I was disappointed at the fact that it is now vegetarian, and of course the less-than-thorough service, and at the start, considering we were a mixed group, a bit worried about mess-ups with the orders (especially considering the new presence of animal products). However, the quality of the food (luckily came as ordered) and the homely environment ultimately made me forget about them for a little bit.

To be honest I was there once and the food was really good, like “homemade with love” good. So this is a pro for sure but the service was quite disappointing. I reserved a table the day before and when we arrived there was only one waitress that didn’t even know about my reservation. They made us seat but everything was just too slow, we were the last ones to leave. We sat at 9 and we left at almost midnight! If they improved this aspect it would be 5 stars

Purtroppo non sono riuscita a godermi la serata a causa del servizio e dell’accoglienza inesistente.
I piatti meritano e credo cambino a seconda della stagione essendo un agriturismo con autoproduzione dei prodotti...
Si deve migliorare i resto per valorizzare lo sforzo fatto dalla cucina!

Pros: Ottime idee menù

Cons: Servizio inesistente , Pulizia

We've found vegan heaven in Italy!

We called Giuseppe and asked him for a reservation on Wednesday evening. Normally the restaurant is only open in the weekend, but since he was cooking for his b&b guests we were welcome to join. And boy oh boy what a beautiful and delicious evening it was. We had a 4 course dinner with all fresh and organic vegetables from Giuseppe's garden. Even the pasta was made from his own wheat! 🌾❤️ This was a night to remember and I recommend everyone, vegan or not, to try this place! When we're back in Italy we'll sure give Giuseppe another phonecall! 😀

Vegan Organic Food Heaven

Such a blissful vegan treat. An absolute gem in an Italy which is not that vegan friendly so far. Way ahead of the game in that it’s not only vegan and delicious but also organic with much of the produce zero food miles as it’s grown on the farm. Giuseppe who runs the farm/restaurant is a visionary who not only cooks fabulous pampering and grounding food, but also travelled to pick up recipes and share information about food preservation with low income women in Lebanon. It doesn’t get more woke than that! Open on Saturday evening and Sunday lunchtime and evening. Book in advance. If you are a large group you can book for other days too. Choose the “Menu completo” and get a four course meal for 25 euros. If you take a friend you can share and taste pretty much everything on the menu - and you’ll want to! Desserts are fabulous. Buy a jar of olive pate or other preserve so you can take a little bit of this wonderful experience home with you. Bliss out!

If you are vegan and reading this, reserve a table right now.

After a week of adjusting dishes, struggling to explain what vegan means etc - we found this fully vegan place on Happy Cow. Booked a table (make sure you do this) and ordered as many dishes as we could. We were so full afterwards. Every dish was exceptional. Chef and host Guiseppe was the nicest guy and worked very hard to provide us with the best food we've had in Italy bar none. Happy Cow directions are in the wrong place, I'd recommend grabbing the correct address from Google to get the right place.
