The table at Il Bottaccio is the altar around which the four elements – air, earth, water and fire – celebrate the rites of senses. Il Bottaccio Restaurant and the Relais is the precursor of a formula, which originates from a happy adulteration between high dinning and art.
And thus for the fortunate guests of this antique oil mill, it is impossible to distinguish between the two entities and to establish where the restaurant ends and the art gallery begins.
Through its refined collection of sculptures, paintings, and furnishings, which represent numerous epochs and styles, Il Bottaccio exalts dinning, making it into something more subtle-a perception, sensation, emotion that nourishes the body and the soul. And it is thus that beauty, rhythm, and poetry add that unique quality to the cuisine of Il Bottaccio that demarcates the establishment’s passage from profession to art.
