“It’s time for your merenda”! Everyone who has grown up in Italy, and has spent their afternoons at Nonna’s house, is familiar with this phrase: words that awaken many sweet memories (and some very delicious savory ones).  It’s time to shed light on one of the most important meals of our childhood. On Sundays, Grand Hotel Minerva’s restaurant “La Buona Novella” turns into a world of long lost memories, where you can discover that side of our culinary tradition that we have tacitly hidden in our grandparent’s kitchens.

La Merenda is all about Tuscan bread with butter and sugar, or sugar and red wine (yes, we had bread with wine as children). Coffee is served out of a moka and you get to eat ricotta cheese and marmalade with a spoon.

Everyday from 4 pm, come and enjoy the ultimate culinary experience,

Discover La Merenda!
