Amazing Italian Cuisine
The restaurant is Walea's hub. Here you can find the welcome room, the relaxation area, the kitchen, the dining room and the central bar.
Between chatting on the sofas, games of cards, chess, backgammon and looking through books and magazines
in different languages, a lot of the time not devoted to the sea is spent going for walks or it is dedicated to body care.
The culinary offerings are inspired by the exotic South East Asian cuisine and by the best Emilian/Italian tradition, while the bar serves a wide range of international cocktails, as well as some of our drinks that bring out the taste of exotic fruit and aromatic herbs that are freshly picked on the island. We have tried to combine the traditional excellence and flavour that has made Italian cuisine famous throughout the world with the exotic flavours of South East Asia.
Our culinary philosophy, since we are hundreds of miles from shopping centres, is based on reviving real genuine cooking and so we are against everything that is pre-cooked, in a buffet or cooked in the microwave.
The staff have followed Simona's instruction's to the finest detail, to provide good homemade bread, biscuits to go with every tea or coffee during the day, fresh handmade pasta, pizza, homemade ice-cream, desserts and recipes in the finest Italian tradition However, for the Eastern style dishes and the incredible fish-based combinations where quality and lightness are essential factors, the kitchen staff have followed Luca, whose very personal technique has become refined over years of passion for cooking.
I would say that my role, however, is crucial: I am Walea's official taster. No recipe is approved that has not been tested by my taste buds!
