It often offers innovative proposals and accompanies its customers with playlists, the so-called “music stories”, and musical evenings with a rich and unique program.

Ristorante Molin Vecio

Housed in an old mill dating back to 1520, the restaurant finds itself in a charming and fairy-tale place, surrounded by green and by the clear waters of the resurgences. The menu draws on typical recipes of Vicenza’s tradition and local products. Besides the “a la carte” menu you will always find a green proposal dedicated to herbs and seasonal vegetables, a proposal with freshwater fish and a proposal to Vicenza's typical cuisine.
