Rare and precious wines

900 labels

Minimalist and natural cuisine

Chef Gianfranco Mameli

The kitchen of La Ciminea is directed by Chef Gianfranco Mameli, an aficionado of local ingredients and connoisseur of the most modern cooking techniques. 

Precious experiences shared with talented chefs such as Masayuki Kondo at Locanda del Pilone, in Alba, and Michelangelo Mammoliti at La Madernassa, molded his philosophy in the kitchen. His collaboration with Fabio Barozzi, whom he worked with in the kitchen of Opificio Cucina e Bottega, in Novara, for almost 4 years, was crucial. 

After his training in the most prestigious Piedmont kitchens, Chef Mameli is now back to the Sardinia of his origins with a plan of making the most of forgotten recipes and ingredients. 

His cuisine is minimalist and natural, focused on giving back the proper value to the fruits of Sardinian lands, often coming from a poor tradition.

In his dishes you will find the warmth of family recipes, capable of bringing back to life the scents of home and of reawakening intimate memories.
