About  Elio Locanda

The roots of Elio Locanda
When I was a child, I grew up in Nonna's Locanda. 
A farm restaurant where guests from all over the world came to spend their summer vacations.
She took care of every single guest as if he was her own child.
With no written menu, fed with natural and locally grown food, everyone who stayed at Nonna's place felt special, loved, and pampered.

Having been raised surrounded by  such a magic atmosphere made me dream of one day opening my own Locanda, just like Nonna's, and ignited a strong desire to travel around the world. And I did.
Several years later destiny brought me to Japan. 
In 1996 this dream became TRUE with the opening of "Elio Locanda".
