Il Tempo Nuovo is the place where your Salento culinary experience will begin. Here we celebrate Mediterranean cooking; our Chef reinvents traditional Italian dishes, especially from south Italy, presenting delicious gastronomic creations based upon ancient recipes handed down through generations, using the simplest and freshest ingredients as a point of departure. His philosophy is to concentrate on the flavors, putting into high relief natural, seasonal products and extracting their essence with elegance and a distinguished light touch. Thanks to his innovative culinary techniques, the Chef's creative flair bestows a “New Time, Tempo Nuovo” unto a traditional cuisine, in front of the backdrop of an ancient Norman tower within the walls of an imposing castle brought to new life by its owners.
