An intimate atmosphere with cordial hospitality
Comfortable halls, with traditional plaster and cane ceilings, cosy light from the candles, and discreet, affable service, always with an eye on guests’ requests and demands.
In the warmer months, the day begins with breakfast on the outdoor terrace, amongst the fragrances and colours of the countryside, and wraps up with dinner in a very evocative atmosphere, overlooking olive trees bathed by moonlight.
On a search for the excellences of the territory.
A wide and accurately selected range of traditional foods, re-elaborated with taste and lightness, thanks to the use of local products such as PDO Sicilian cheeses, olive oil from Val di Noto, fresh fish from our seas, fresh and cured meats from local farms, organically grown fruits and vegetables.
Special attention is dedicated to desserts, the apple of the eye of Sicilian cuisine, and to the preparation of gelato, fresh jams and semifreddo desserts, using ingredients such as almonds, walnuts, pistachios, lemons, oranges, fresh ricotta cheese and wild thyme honey.
Upon request, special needs can be attended to, especially regarding food intolerances and allergies.
The kitchen of Masseria degli Ulivi counts on the produce from its organic garden, where we plant local vegetables which are harvested fresh every day to prepare our dishes.
Ancient Sicilian grains bread
Thanks to a collaboration with the Maìdda artisan workshop and laboratory in Noto, every single day we serve bread made with ancient stone-ground Sicilian grains.
The wine cellar
We carry the island’s best labels, especially those from Val di Noto, whose autochthonous production of reds and whites focuses on Nero d’Avola, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, Etna (red and white), Insolia and Grillo.
Our selection is made even more precious by the addition of sweet and meditation wines, such as Moscato di Noto, passito, late harvests and also dry spumanti, the new promising frontier of modern Sicilian oenology.
