Description
Surrounded by the soft Barolo Hills, Villa d’Amelia takes its guests through unique culinary journeys. The painstaking search for ingredients and Chef Damiano Nigro’s touch, walk guests all day long. Start your day with a complete breakfast that offers a large selection of cakes and pastries prepared in our in-house laboratory, and end with a dinner that can be enjoyed either in the charming gourmet restaurant Damiano Nigro, or in the more informal but high level restaurant DaMà. Our wines jealously housed in the cellar carved out of a deconsecrated chapel, located in the hotel’s courtyard, make our dishes even more exquisite.
