Borgo Egnazia


Every day of the year, in every season, Borgo Egnazia is like a breathing tale of Puglia, spoken by the ancient culture of the land and by the sheer beauty of its nonpareil architecture.


With its central piazza, the Borgo is the heart of the property. Its internal and external architectural design is reminiscent of a traditional Apulian village.
The Borgo hosts many of Borgo Egnazia’s services, such as La Frasca restaurant and Mia Cucina trattoria (where our cooking classes are held), as well as the fabulous Trullalleri Kids Club and Fichi d’India Teens Club.

Borgo Egnazia was built entirely of rough limestone and local stones cut by the skilled hands of stone masters. Artist and designer Pino Brescia was inspired by the simplicity of Puglia’s ancient farmhouses and rural villages. It is a contemporary interpretation of Apulian architecture, providing three kinds of accommodation, different in scope and size, but all conceived as an harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, modernity and authenticity, grandeur and simplicity.

RESTAURANTS AND BARS
Apulian food is recognized all over the world for its diversity and genuineness. Every restaurant at Borgo Egnazia provides the highest quality in terms of food and service, along with a different mood for each location. Our executive chef and his team create their menus using fresh local materials from our rich soil and our generous sea. Oil, wine, vegetables, fish, meat, spices: they all concur to our vision of fulfilling our cuisine’s two-fold soul: gourmet and traditional. And if you love enjoying a drink during the day, an apéritif at sunset or a toast after dinner, don’t miss the classic cocktails and unique novelties at our bars.
1
Due Camini: an evocative and refined gourmet restaurant, made precious by limestone, wood and candle light swashes, it offers a true “auteur cuisine”, complex yet authentic and simple. Here Apulian traditions are revamped by our executive chef Domingo Schingaro through a culinary touch, using carefully selected ingredients and skillful creative cooking methods.
1
La Frasca: a genuine Apulian “trattoria” in the heart of the Borgo, where wood blends with the clean white halls and the tools and objects from our rural heritage. Guests can discover the deep rural roots of Apulian typical cuisine through a menu celebrating the many treasures of our local tradition.
1
Trattoria Mia Cucina: an “open kitchen” where old and forgotten recipes can be enjoyed just like in a local home and where our beloved “massaia” Mimina shares the ancient secrets of Apulian cuisine. At the lovely “A Pizzerì” outdoor area you can also taste some excellent pizza, made with the best ingredients and three different dough varieties.
1
Pescheria da Vito: a seafront culinary corner, located at our private beach Cala Masciola. A blend between a restaurant and a fish shop, it serves light salads, pasta dishes and most of all extremely fresh seafood. Guests can pick up fish from the market stall and have it weighed and cooked at their wish or enjoy it according to the Apulian tradition of “crudo” (raw).

Il Cortile: a pleasant open-air space focusing on “live” cooking and fresh local raw materials. Here, a number of food stations allow guests to follow and learn the making of their preferred dish, be it a first course, a meat or fish recipe or a freshly composed salad.

Da Puccetta: a magic and otherworldly place for our younger guests, where every detail and piece of furniture, from chairs to tables or the buffet, is sized to children, who will enjoy great moments of joyful playing and natural and simple dishes that change every day.
51
Bar del Portico: a perfect lounge adorned with glass jars filled with dried pulses and cinnamon sticks, offering cocktails, such as the home special Ramato, apéritifs, a refined selection of wines and light snacks.
Other pleasant areas for chilled refreshments are available across the property: the open-air Capanno Bar by the main pool, L’Angoletto Bar by the Family Pool area and Caffe della Piazzetta in the grand Piazza.
