What was to be a regular lunch with colleagues turned into an afternoon of delight. My partner and I arrived a bit early so we had a drink at the lower "cantina" looking on to the Bay of Sogeto with vegetables drying overhead. This is truly a working farm ~ wine, honey, olives and a variety of fruits & veggies.... More

We stayed at Punta Chiarito(actually at the dependence, Villa Catarina) and ate our first meal at the cantina below. The cantina offers fresh salad, and lighter fare and like all of the resort, super views and nice service. We ate our first evening meal at the main restaurant, again super views and romantic. They offer a la carte or a... More

The cantina just below the hotel with the organic farms near by does amazing salad and wine. The views are pretty much unparalleled as you look out over the sea above the natural springs Very reasonable

This was a great place with home grown ingredients. We were there on Sunday, which was rabbit day, it was very good. The eggplant Parmesan gratin was to die for.

This is the second time that I have had dinner at this restaurant, and the food is incredible. The waitstaff is professional and pleasant. The vegetables used in the meal are grown in their own garden, so everything is super fresh. Their location high on a cliff overlooking the sea and Saint Angelo is just the icing on the cake....

We decided to have lunch here before going to the beach and we were pleasantly surprised. I got a seafood salad which was simply amazing! Besides the great food you can't beat the view.

Description
Restaurant Chiarito means Mediterranean tradition.....The history of our place shows that we wanted to create a small restaurant above the wonderful Sant'Angelo bay, a restaurant that spoke of us, of our farm and of the history of Punta Chiarito, which was the place of the first Greek settlement on the island and of the discovery of the first vine seed planted by the Greeks. In both restaurants of the hotel the local produces of our farm are an excellent basis for our cooking: vegetables, fruits, wine, oil, all year long. The ambient is very pleasant, held in white and with ceramics.The chef Giovangiuseppe Solmonese chose traditional dishes for the menu but also a mix of Mediterranean flavours and cultures.We will offer you a selection of typical wines, which are abundant in Italy, hoping that the Chiarito (it means "clear" because of the constant sun and therefore of a maximum of light) will enlighten your evenings...The Restaurant Chiarito opens every night from April till the beginning of November and later during Christmas time. We will be grateful if you make a reservation.
