In the heart of Pollino National Park lies Hotel Picchio Nero, a family-run hotel with award-winning restaurant by chef Pino Golia. The restaurant is featured in the most influential guides and reviewed all over the world. Let us spoil you!

I’ve been in this property several times and it has been always amazing. Great place, great sleep, great food and great mood. The best accommodation in this part of Italy.

Make sure to have your meal in the Hotel and arrange an excursion on the mountains!

This was our first trip to southern Italy. The rooms were sparkling clean – and the dinner was out of this world.

Pino is not only the owner/operator, but also the main chef. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. No matter how many people he is cooking for he makes a point of explaining the different courses to each table, and making you feel you are the only patron.
