With such an abundance of natural local produce from the surrounding area of the Relais & Chateaux Villa Abbazia, it would indeed be difficult not to be inspired by the local gastronomy. This brings together with supreme skill and innovation all the flavours of the culinary tradition, ensuring that the restaurant is known at international level, not only for its sophisticated dishes, and high quality wines, but also for the careful preparation of the typical simple dishes of this pre-alpine region. The produce that is used in the restaurant is for the most part organic, and is obtained from local farmers.
At La Corte, the intimate and exclusive
restaurant of the Villa Abbazia, the chef

exquisite'. These are the words which underline the chef's attitude
to his cuisine: simple, linear, using only the freshest and highest
quality merchandise. The setting of charm and taste means that

May we suggest: Polenta with cream of Piave, Norcian truffles and Red Chicory Crunch, liver cooked in the Mondragon style, with Salted Cod a la Montelliana. To finish, why not try Millefeuille with saffron cream, or Creamy Caramel Delight.

The 'Ladies Room' is the perfect venue for a romantic candlelit dinner, whilst 'the Tree Room' is where one might take an aperitif, it being a haven of tranquillity and relaxation. The 'Tiepolo Room' is furnished with an original eighth century bread chest, and antique dishes by Bassano decorate the walls.; the 'Fireplace Room' reflects the traditions of the cuisine of the Veneto, and the 'Fountain Room' has an atmosphere typical of a lavish winter garden, whilst on the warm summer evenings, outside in the internal courtyard, by flickering candle light, guests can enjoy the finest of dining, surrounded by the sweet perfume of summer flowers, under a canvas of brilliant starlight.
