In our restaurant we serve only fresh products just prepared, respecting
the most authentic culinary tradition. Every morning we choose the
best seasonal foods to prepare the menu we offer to our guests. The idea
to offer a combination of flavors that crosses two regions, Abruzzo and
Salento Puglia, stems from the history of the building that houses the
"Cantine San Flaviano" Restaurant, which was the home of Giulio
Antonio Acquaviva, duke of Atri, (Atri, around 1428 - Minervino di
Lecce, 7 February 1481), founder of the city of Giulianova. After the
battle of San Flaviano (25 July 1460), the ancient settlement was
sacked by the soldiers of Matteo from Capua and reduced to rubble. In
1471, instead of rebuilding the city, Giulio Antonio Acquaviva chose to
build a new one higher up, near the ancient city; it was named Giulia
Nova, in honor of its founder.
In 1480 Giulio Antonio Acquaviva went to Puglia to fight the Turks,
who had conquered Otranto and threatened Brindisi. His fame is linked
to the campaign for the reconquest of Otranto (1481), during which he
lost his life in an ambush. This close link between the two regions,
witnessed by the life of the noble from Atri, led us to propose wine and
food itineraries that might people taste the first fruits of both lands, in
a context that still preserves the suggestion of a distant epoch.
