Insider's guide: 4 of the best rustic restaurants in the Mediterranean

Insider's guide: 4 of the best rustic restaurants in the Mediterranean

A Pignata, Levie, Corsica

A Pignata, Levie, Corsica

Recommended by Fabio Bragagnolo, of Casadelmar, Porto-Vecchio

One of the delights of exploring the Mediterranean on a superyacht is the opportunity for wonderful dining. Some of the best restaurants in the area use simple techniques and local ingredients to produce stunning food.

Here four Michelin-starred chefs — Marc Fosh, Fabio Bragagnolo, Giancarlo Morelli and Antonio Mellino — give their take on some of the best rustic restaurants in the Mediterranean.

Fabio Bragagnolo says: “If you are prepared to leave the sea and have your feet on the ground for a day, it is worth heading into the Alta Rocca region in the heart of the island, with its dramatic mountains, forests and bronze-age megaliths. Levie is an hour from Porto-Vecchio (or 30 minutes from Propriano on the west coast) and A Pignata is an authentic farm inn that serves traditional Corsican cuisine: roast lamb, cannelloni with brocciu, flageolet casserole and beignets.”

Need to know: The restaurant was opened in 1988 by Antoine and Lili de Rocca-Serra in the village where they were born. The beautiful open-air restaurant has a large fireplace and lovely views. It is also popular with locals in the evening so it is worth booking a table.

How to visit from your superyacht: If you decide to incorporate a visit to A Pignata while chartering a superyacht in Corsica or cruising on a private yacht, make sure you have accurate directions as it is easy to get lost on the narrow road leading to the farm. While you are on dry land you should consider visiting some of the country's vineyards as Corsica is a wine lover's paradise.
