Join us for a special dinner in our garden – or an evening of philosophy paired with aperitivo. It's your night to choose.


During the past several years we've hosted friends in our garden located only minutes from the historical center of Lecce. Now we'd like to open this special space to new friends who would like to join us for dinner and wine, or perhaps for a philosophical evening along with aperitivo. We are experienced home chefs and our menu is always changing, varying from local and regional Italian dishes to Middle Eastern, American BBQ, and beyond. We welcome individuals, couples, tourists and locals, and we speak English and Italian.

Just wanted to give you a very big thank you for a really lovely evening! You were great hosts and the food was excellent and the setting couldn’t have been more perfect!

What a fabulous evening in a wonderful setting!! Tim and Stefania were great hosts, the food was excellent and plenty of drink too! Their garden is a wonderful entertaining space and the evening was a great success. I really can’t recommend them highly enough!!

Tim and Stefania were wonderful hosts and, thanks to them, we enjoyed a very special evening. The conversation was interesting, the food delicious, and the dinner-in-the-garden seating showed Lecce at its best. Tim and Stefania helped us feel at home and we were well-cared for throughout the event. We made new international friends while we had a splendid meal in a quietly beautiful setting. I encourage everyone who visits Lecce to “eatwith” this friendly and fun couple.

In a colourful garden adjacent to the ground level home wine and conversation flow, and a tasty three course meal is served family style. Then desserts, and for a finale Limoncello and grappa are poured. The evening sprawls out for hours that one doesn’t notice passing. Result - four happy foreigners regaled and hosted by Tim and his bilingual family. Recommended!
