The Schiaffino family have looked after guests with all their dedication and enthusiasm since 1962, constantly trying out new ideas but unfailingly drawing on tradition as an essential, limitless source of inspiration.
Fall in love with our story
In 1962, when the Schiaffino family built the first 14-room nucleus of the Hotel Villa Edera and La Torretta, there was not even a road to get to the land overlooking the last tunnel before entering Moneglia, coming from Riva Trigoso and looking towards the bay of the Secca beach. The materials were brought to the site on the back of a mule, following the mule track that started near the church in the center of the town.
The Schiaffinos – in particular Orietta, a declared gourmet – have thought of a gastronomic proposal that draws on the strength of the surrounding nature, the aromatic herbs, the vegetables, in short, everything that came from the scattered gardens of Villa Edera. And in December 2019 they handed this extraordinary potential into the hands of a young and promising chef, Jorg Giubbani.
The chef of the “Orto“ restaurant in Moneglia, Jorg Giubbani, has seen the Michelin Star confirmed also for 2023, a prestigious recognition for his cuisine.
Great raw materials and tradition
Jorg Giubbani – reads the motivation for the award – is a young Ligurian chef who, thanks to important professional experiences, has developed an idea of cuisine that primarily wants to be a narrative of the region. Its gastronomic proposal has the privilege of being based on great raw materials and, as the name states, on the private vegetable garden that surrounds the structure, following the common thread of tradition with its ingredients and its flavours, following the rhythm of seasonality and the chef’s creativity. The wine selection is aimed at the discovery and enhancement of the territory.
