The joys of a restaurant that pays attention to the quality and freshness of its dishes

Immersed in an atmosphere that can put anyone at ease from the first moment, pampered in an environment that leaves nothing to chance and that offers the palate the opportunity to experience the joys of a restaurant attentive to the quality and freshness of its dishes, guests will be transported in an extraordinary daydream. This is why Villa Pagoda has been for over two hundred years a prestigious venue for special events hosted in its elegant halls of the winter festivals and in its fascinating centuries-old park and its panoramic terrace during the summer months.


A villa of the late 1700s, with a new elegant reception hall that can accommodate up to 200 people and a large private parking in its own park, managed and cared for in detail directly by the owner family, distinguished by a high gastronomic level of its restaurant, with friendly service and a charming atmosphere. A careful and punctual service that never forgets the most important thing for you: make you feel as if the reception was housed in your home.
