Italy is renowned worldwide for its mouth watering delicacies; the chef-cooked meals and sweet wines vino are arguably second to none when enjoyed in the sun. If there was a capital for the best Italian foods it would probably be Puglia.- Food at Borgo Egnazia.
The Puglian Tradition
Puglia, in the past, has attracted the likes of the Normans, Goths, Spanish, Turks and Greeks, all of whom have left their mark along the coastline of the Southern Italian region. It is therefore a cultural melting pot of ancient traditions; food recipes preserved and passed across generations.
Borgo Egnazia is an Arabian Nights-esque resort of villas set in the centre of Puglia. Some villas, like La Corte Villa, are ideal for the family, and guests are treated to a fine mix of traditional Italian comfort and tasty cuisine at our Borgo Egnazia restaurants.
