Groves & Vineyards

It’s time for the main course, served with a glass or two: the ninth annual Groves and Vineyards Festival returns to Casalinga Ristorante Italiano in May.
May we remind you that tickets are now on sale for the ninth annual Groves and Vineyards Festival. Following the success of last year’s event, Groves and Vineyards will once again be hosted by Casalinga Ristorante Italiano.

Where better to hold a festival celebrating olives, grapes and all the great things that can be made from them, than a place where they are lovingly used every day to create authentic Italian cuisine. On the weekend of May 27th and 28th, the Casalinga gardens will be the place to be to indulge in the very finest produce from perhaps the two greatest plants on Earth: the grape vine and the olive tree.

It’s almost impossible to imagine life without them, and thanks to Casalinga, you won’t have to!

"Nella botte piccola, c’è il vino buono / Good things come in small packages"


At Casalinga, our mission is to create authentic, contemporary Italian cuisine in a rustic rural setting, and to bring people together to celebrate family, friendship and flavourful food.


A world in which we all slow down a little and take the time to reconnect with the people who mean the most to us. Preferably around the table while enjoying good food and a glass of wine, while creating lifelong memories of special occasions.
