Splendid structure in a wonderful location, l’Antico Frantoio, built in 1700 by the Doria family, initially as a water mill, and then as olives crusher, for pressing and using cold press. The Grillo family, that owns it since four generations, has refurbished it in respecting its tradition getting halls with exposed stones arches, with characteristic corners with a view on the village. In the summertime it is also possible to enjoy stylish and fascinating outside places. A preferred destination for ceremonies and special occasions, it is also suitable for romantic and family dinners. The owner Marco Grillo and his partner Vanna produce extra virgin oil from high quality Taggia olives, the wine Rossese di Dolceacqua, and preserves of Taggia olives, dry tomatoes and pesto, which can be purchased in the agritourism. The tasting menu for 35 euro offers traditional appetizers like brandacujun, sardenaira, Pigna beans soup with thyme and toasts, two first course dishes made of fresh pasta like spicy ravioli and tagliatelle with Pigna beans, and second course dishes even made of fish, like salted codfish and fisheries with olives or artichokes. Good selection of homemade desserts. Local labels, among which stands out own produced Rossese in the cellar. Courteous and professional service.
