Enchanting RestaurantTaste and atmosphere

Welcome to “DE TERRA VITA”, the restaurant of the Eco Resort “Il Cantico della Natura”
DE TERRA VITA is pleased to take you on a special culinary journey through Umbria and its best suppliers and its best products. Trust our chef  Davide Scamardella, or choose from the a la carte menu, it’s up to you to decide! You are welcome even if you are not a guest of the resorts!
We are Davide and Elke and this year we celebrate 10 years since our first meeting in Barcelona
where we were on vacation. It was immediately clear that we shared the same passion: a nice dish with a good glass of wine.
Davide started cooking at the age of 16 and has gained international experience.. His dream has always been to cook in his restaurant, and that dream is now a reality- Its fidelity to Italian traditions is combined with modern influences.
It will always be slightly different than you expect, but definitely better!

Our goal is to give everyone a unique evening!
DE TERRA VITA has a magical atmosphere. The interior inexposed stone enjoys an extremely warm and welcoming candlelit atmosphere. The outdoor patio is delightful corner surrounded by centuries-old olive trees with a view that is lost in the green of nature.
Our restaurant only for two “Incanto d’amore” unique in Umbria is the ideal place to celebrate a special occasion. It is also possible to have dinner, on request in the pool accompanied by the splendid view of the lake, in the spa, and in the individual accommodations indoor (in some) or in the outdoor spacewhich almost all have.

At the center of our attention are not only our guests, but also our team. We do that by involving our team in the decision-making process, using everyone’s strengths, creating a festive and welcoming atmosphere.
The team of the “DE TERRA VITA” wishes for you an unforgettable food and wine experience…

Typical and organic excellences

The Products of the territory

We give great credit to local and seasonal food, this for us means quality.We daily try also to support the ethical aspect,travelling less kilometers for transport, and choosingonly seasonal products, even the consumption of water and energy is minimal. Buying directly
from our small producers we always have fresh and genuine products, some directly from
“il Cantico farm” which shines in its organic extra virgin olive oil. Even the wines are purchased directly from local producers in a range which does not exceed 70 kilometers from us. You will find on our wine list, a great variety of Umbrian wines
and some Tuscan wine!


Breakfast at the Cantico is an important event. We wake up and start the day with a proposal based on the typical and organic products of the territory, including our cold cuts and cheeses, knife sliced ham, traditional sweets, home-made biscuits, jams and organic honey, without forgetting any special requirements.
Breakfast is served in our intimate restaurant or on the pleasant indoor patio in the summer. It is served by our staff at the table or counter, for those who prefer it directly in the room in a personalised manner and with flexible hours to guarantee autonomy, privacy and security.
