Among the gentle embroideries of the stone and the soft plays of light, Lecce welcomes you. This is where Atenze was born and where his story of taste takes place.

The Taste of Beauty.
Welcome to Atenze.

The Patria Palace is Atenze's home. An ancient noble palace in the historic center of Lecce, now luxury hotel, in which to surrender to the elegance of style and flavours.
Atenze is the gourmet restaurant in the historic center of Lecce. Mirrored in the Baroque masterpiece of the Basilica of Santa Croce, Atenze guides you on an itinerary to discover the gastronomic geography of Salento. Original combinations of flavors express the tension towards reaching the balance point between a deep respect for the ingredients and their creative and contemporary interpretation, in an unusual taste experience.
