The school is located in Corte dell’Idume, in the heart of Leccese Baroque, where it is said, since 500 flowed the river from which it takes its name. Among ancient stones and ancient vaulted ceilings, in a harmonious environment, we also find a cave in the shape of inverted cone,which it was used in the ancient times for the collection of rainwater, today is our “Cantina Meditativa”used to taste wine and sing together.
Gianna desire is to blend flavors and traditions with skill and empathy where those who choose to prepare a dish aspires to assess their essence through real and unique moments.

Our chef always pays more attention to the special dietary needs of our guests, such as vegetarian, vegan, macrobiotic, gluten-free, or anti-allergic menu.
