Contemporary Italian tradition 

Italy was all about “la dolce vita” in the 1950s and 1960s. Now its daring, irreverent flavours are back and they’ve been fused with Lucanian tradition in the Santavenere Hotel, in a modern culinary experience that weaves a narrative about the present day. 

The large windows of the indoor dining room look out over the sea and guests can dine outside on the large patio on warm summer evenings. 

From Monday to Thursday, guests are taken on an enthralling journey through traditional Italian cuisine and its forthright flavours. They’re given a contemporary twist and the exceptional local food and wine is championed. 


All the goodness of simple flavours 

This poolside pizzeria also serves light, fresh and delicious dishes. As you look at the olive and lemon trees all around you and the unmistakable fragrance of aromatic maquis shrubs fills the air, you’ll feel like you’re dreaming.


Fragrant sea air and fresh local products 

A simple but sophisticated seafront terrace, just a stone’s throw from the jetty. You can eat the catch of the day in this restaurant at lunchtime every day and also at dinner during the weekend. If you’re fond of fresh seafood and romantic sunsets on the horizon, come here to enjoy the classic coastal cuisine. 



Experimentation and searching for sublime taste sensations 
The bars are open and ready to cater to the needs of guests all day long. 

Gli Ulivi selects traditional cocktail flavours and gives them a fresh twist using local ingredients, striking an ideal balance between great taste and visual appeal. Relax in the afternoon with refreshing drinks and herbal tea. 

Il Carrubo is a cool spot in the shade with an outstanding view of the bay. It’s an ideal place to have a refreshing drink during the day or to sip sundowners as evening approaches.
