Ristorante Polignano a Mare

Our History

Since 2002 in the heart of Polignano a Mare stands Villa degli Aranci, set in a villa of 1800, and tells every day a story of love and magnificence, surrounded by lush vegetation in a beautiful bay on the sea..

The precious and intimate atmosphere is a perfect combination with the culinary offer. Puglia expressed is the result of refinement and attention to detail, to let guests experience the essence of Puglia..

The old well, the stone table (as it was used in ancient times) and the splendid terrace overlooking the citrus grove (cared for and protected with dedication), are some of the predominant elements of the Villa.

Ristorante Polignano a Mare Storia


Accounting Manager

My name is Barbara and I’m the second daughter of the family.
I grew up playing at the restaurant tables and Villa degli Aranci has always been part of my life.
After completing my accounting studies, I take care of the whole commercial part of the restaurant, from contact with suppliers to accounting.
When I’m not overwhelmed by cards, I work with my sister Antonella in the dining room. Friendliness is fundamental in our work and I am always ready to offer advice to customers on new dishes to try.
My smile, my winning weapon.

Room manager and event organiser

My name is Antonella and I’m the firstborn in the family.
Ever since I was a child, my father has passed on his love for this job to me.
