ubicato nelle cantine del palazzo ducale dei Cantelmo, al suo intero si può ancora ammirare un antico Torchio a leva del XVII sec. Cucina tipica di montagna a gestione familiare. il menù viene modificato stagionalmente ma la portata cardine, presente tutto l'anno, è la Polenta di Pettorano. Ampia la selezione dei vini scelti con cura e ricerca costante...la cantina dei vini è ubicata all'esterno del ristorante in un negozio di calzature degli anni '20. il resto sarete voi a raccontarlo!
