la cucina di simonetta
My kitchen rigorously respects seasonality, I mainly use local products to create the traditional dishes that our mothers and grandmothers have given us. A walk in my herb garden, an old cookbook .. that’s how I get inspired to create a new dish.
The extra virgin olive oil produced from my olive grove is the irreplaceable protagonist of my kitchen, which often offers dishes with very rich vegetables.
Here at Casa Bellavista I love spending hours in the kitchen preparing fresh handmade bread and pasta, as well as cakes and baked goods for breakfast.
A Celebrity Taste of Italy
In 1995 Simonetta purchased a piece of property known as Casa Bellavista and already present in Roman times. Utilizing her extensive experience, she restored the house with careful attention to the design of her kitchen and gardens and in 2001 Casa Bellavista B & B was born. Within a few years it earned international reviews and was recognized among the best in the area for its charming ambiance, service and food. Its international reputation culminated when Simonneta was featured by Channel 5 (UK) as the guest chef in their TV series A Celeberity Taste Of Italy.
