Traditional Murgia Cuisine

Cucina tipica murgiana

Masseria Ruòtolo is a family-run business - Antonella, Luciano and Marcella are perfectionists when it comes to preparing local traditional dishes. They prepare lots of different kinds of food on the farm, such as homemade pasta, cheeses, fruit juices, jams and preserves, canned vegetables in olive oil, traditional liqueurs, meat from the farm and traditional cakes.

Some of the traditional dishes offered to guests are:

  • wheat and beans
  • Ruòtolo style cavatellini pasta
  • orecchiette pasta with mushrooms and sausages
  • Ruòtolo style rabbit
  • "au cutturiedde" lamb

All the dishes are prepared in harmony with nature and the history of the Murgia region.

Special care is taken when preparing menus for people suffering from food intolerance (lactose intolerance, celiac disease etc) and for vegetarians, vegans etc.

The farm has:

  • A scenic restaurant hall (200 sq.m.)
  • A kitchen
  • A wood oven

The farm buildings surrounding the old threshing area have been turned into:
