Let’s start immediately with a very simple question: at the Albergo Olimpia Restaurant, do you have any typical dish of the house?

Among the first courses, we have a tasty porcini mushroom soup, while for the latter we prepare a great roast with wild fennel, or if you prefer some excellent eggplant all’Olimpia. As for desserts instead, we have a delicious curly-haired ready to be enjoyed.

We remain on the subject of dishes, and we would like to ask you what are the dishes most requested by your customers?

Surely the most popular soups are homemade pasta. Mainly because they are easy to do, but also very comforting when you need a hot meal on a cold day or after an evening out with friends!
Mole sauce is one of my favorite things about this country – it tastes absolutely divine served on noodles that have been cooked all the way but still retain their bite; while cannellini beans give depth and crunchiness thanks mainly to their use here together with some fleshy mushrooms such as cèpes (porcini mushrooms) or porcini mushrooms.

That’s a very good question. Let me tell you what I think! When we interact with customers in person, they may feel more connected to us and the experience is much better for them because of this quality of human connection that merchants have when they deal directly without an online intermediary like Yelp or Google ReviewFrPaper which takes away their ability to be authentic, also providing valuable feedback.

The answer to this question lies deep in the heart of every restaurant employee. They know that personal touch with every customer is what really sets them apart from their competitors, and it can be difficult for managers or owners not to have time at work to do all those little things that help build relationships between servers and their customers!
The love of spoken food could also play in favor when someone works behind a bar – how else should you stay entertained while people order?

We thank the Hotel Restaurant Olimpia for the kind availability and patience in answering our questions, and we invite you to continue to follow our interviews to the various dining activities.
