L’Ulivo, the keynote restaurant of Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa, is a pure oasis of peace where guests can find a quiet atmosphere and indulge in a variety of local dishes, choosing between an internal room overlooking the garden and the cloister.
The elegance of the indoor tables is equally competing with those located in the patio for perfect al fresco dining, overlooking the lush green gardens surrounded by the tall walls of the convent, or with those located in the XVI century internal cloister which guarantee to our guests a lot of privacy, in an atmosphere which is impossible to find anywhere in Venice. During the sweet summer nights is possible to have candlelit dinners, surrounded by the magical and bucolic atmosphere of the gardens of the convent.
Open for lunch and dinner L’Ulivo serves light and tasty dishes, prepared with organic local produce, with a variety of choice also for those looking for vegetarian, vegan or gluten free proposals.
The open kitchen of the restaurant allows guests to see how our Chef Mirko Capretti inspired by the freshest ingredients, creates an exceptional menu full of seasonal flavors, ranging from dishes of the superb Venetian tradition and international specialities like tuna tartare or shrimp risotto, always with a focus on organic ingredients blended with sea flavors.
Our wine selection offers a refined range of choice between red and white wines, ideal to pair all the fish dishes of the menu.
The awarded Colmello winery from Friuli region produces every year a limited number of bottles in order to guarantee a constant level of quality in the whole selection: the blend of the Collio white and the reds are then aged in French oak barrels that soften them and enhance their complex flavors.
In addition to producing classic wines, the company has achieved excellence with two special blends: Sanfilip, a exeptional balanced blend between Friulian Tocai, Chardonnay and Sauvignon; and Rondon that blends Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Most of the wine is bottled, with only about 7% of the total production sold directly from the company headquarters.
Half of the bottled wine is exported throughout Europe, and the USA.
L’ulivo restaurant is open from March to November to all the hotel’s guests and the external guests.
