The best kept secret of the Tenuta Monacelli & Masseria Giampaolo is its own Rifugio del Re Restaurant, the manor farm's preferred social venue. You may sample typical entrees of the Salento and of Apulia at lunch and dinner. Our chefs have revisited traditional recipes and adapted them for our modern guests. They are also masters of both Italian and international fusion cuisine to meet the expectations of those guests who choose Tenuta Monacelli & Masseria Giampaolo, over other hotels in Lecce as the destination for their stay in the manor houses of Salento.
Quality and freshness of the ingredients are the secret for the success of our restaurant. Our extravergin olive oil and the estate's other products are the key ingredients of every entree served, transformed into velvety delights by always adding a touch of olive oil.
Our wines are selected from those produced by the estate, including established red and white wines, as well as new, trendy wines to enjoy for an aperitif or after dinner.
Tenuta Monacelli & Masseria Giampaolo are also the ideal scenario for every kind of ceremony. Our Underground Olive Mill, recently restored and given back to his ancient beauty, can held up to 150 people, and could be the set for your Wedding, either small and big ceremonies: our expertise will guarantee the realization of whatever you desire.
