Gourmet Restaurant where to taste the creations of Chef Oliver Glowig, former two Michelin stars, in love with Italy and its products of absolute quality. An unforgettable experience, with à la carte menus and choices of gourmet tasting itineraries with or without paired wines
Of German origin, Oliver Glowig gets his first Michelin star in Mario Gamba’s “Acquarello” restaurant in Munich in 2000. At the Grand Hotel Quisisana in Capri he is then under the advice of his mentor Gualtiero Marchesi, with whom he subsequently also worked in the eponymous and legendary restaurant in Erbusco. In 2001 Oliver Glowig left Germany for Italy, and at the “Capri Palace Hotel & Spa” in Anacapri on the Amalfi Coast he became Executive Chef of “L’Olivo” restaurant. Here, in 2004, his Michelin star was reconfirmed. In 2006, he was awarded his second Michelin star, to add to the 17/20 of the L’Espresso Guide, an achievement that places him in the list of Italy’s Top Chefs.
Ambassador of Italian gastronomic culture, Chef Oliver has always been involved in Italian and international consultancy, also training new students who help him in his project to export the concept of the Mediterranean diet in the world: from the “Primavera by Oliver Glowig” restaurant at the Ritz Carlton in Bahrain, at the “Locanda by Oliver Glowig” in Saas Fee in Switzerland, passing through the “Toca” in Toronto, all united by the search for good raw material enhanced and reinterpreted with respect and wisdom with new and surprising color combinations. The quality of raw materials is crucial for a top-class cuisine, but there must also be a good deal of creativity, passion and hard-work, all skills innate in Oliver, who somehow manages to find a balance between the discipline and precision of his German origins, and Italian creativity and resourcefulness.
At Locanda Petreja, named in homage to the ancient Gens Petreja who lived in the Castrum di Petroro, Chef Oliver Glowig proposes his personal vision of a mixture of land and sea, with a menu that is his most faithful manifesto: to the absolute quality of raw materials, treated with skill and technique, is associated with a touch of creativity, to reinvent tradition and create absolutely new and original combinations. The menus, including vegetarians solutions, allow you to discover the most authentic flavors of Umbria, thanks to a choice of local and seasonal ingredients, some grown locally in the property’s vegetable garden.
Outside, a 70-seat panoramic terrace with ceramic tables and a Belvedere area, for moments of relaxation or pre-dinner aperitifs. For special events, anniversaries, weddings or in occasion of national and religious holidays, Locanda Petreja and Chef Oliver Glowig organize special lunches or dinners in the splendid Medieval Piazzetta of Borgo Petroro.
