Titino combines nature and flavours

In addition to the unique location, which gives an extraordinary sea view, we pride ourselves on Titino’s cuisine, our father and renowned chef, who loves to surprise guests by using vegetables from the organic garden and directly from the sea.

The restaurant is our pride and joy. Here, you can appreciate a simple and tasty cuisine, which has its roots in the traditions and flavours of the surrounding area.

Every day will be a triumph of organic nature with the products of our garden and fresh fish, thanks to the sea just opposite.

Caciocavallo podolico and cacioricotta cheeses, Carpino broad beans, organic oranges and lemons, EVO oil, risotto with citrus and scampi, troccoli (hand-made pasta) with 4 tomatoes (yellow, orange, red and black) with lemon or borage dough, mixed salad and wild herbs, linguine with blue fish and wild fennel, fried mixed fish, salmon crudités, amberjack and seafood, soup of the catch of the day and homemade desserts are just some of the delicacies with which we will tease you taste buds☺.

We conclude our lunches by tasting rosoli (homemade liqueurs) and liqueurs, such as carob or medlar, limoncello and nocino.

A romantic setting on the sea

We are located directly on the sea, a few minutes from the city centre, in a beautiful architectural building, with attention to the smallest details both in the exterior and interiors.

Because the rooms are spacious, the view is amazing considering the strategic position. It is easy to visit the surrounding areas, reaching the modern marina of Rodi Garganico, for example, and treat yourself to a day at the nearby Tremiti Islands. On the way back, after a photo at sunset, a dinner at the Ristorante da Titino is ideal to rediscover the tantalising flavours.

Check the timetables of the local buses and the connection to the Apulian airport network!

Few rooms, lots of enjoyment

Our 3-star hotel on the sea in Rodi Garganico has 15 pleasant rooms, all different from each other. They have a sea or garden view, a balcony or terrace, but in any case, they are always a beautiful setting for your holiday in the Gargano.

The rooms can be double or triple (on request, also a quadruple). One is dedicated to the writer Cassieri, a welcome recurring guest who used to come here to be inspired by the sea view.

All the rooms have:

Unless otherwise agreed, the rooms are delivered from 2 pm on the day of arrival and must be vacated by 10 am on the day of departure.

A rundown of what we offer

There are so many services available that it is not easy to list them all. Below, however, we provide you with a quick preview. Please contact us without commitment for any doubts or information.

Discovering the Gargano

In the areas surrounding Rodi Garganico, there is so much to do and see

We are located not far from the historic centre of Rodi Garganico, directly on the sea, in a strategic position to admire the surrounding landscape and to organise many excursions to enrich the experience of your beach holidays in Puglia.

Rodi Garganico

A splendid city, famous as the Giardino d’Agrumi (Citrus garden) until the 20th century. The town is perched on a rocky promontory between two long sandy beaches, a few kilometres east of Lake Varano, while the historic centre, like the walls surrounding it, is of medieval origin. It is characterised by narrow, steep alleys and is very picturesque.

To be visited:

  • the historic centre
  • the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Libera
  • the convent
  • the old Aragonese Castle (the two towers are still visible)
  • The cliffs on the stretch of coast in front of the town: the biggest one is called “del Cane” (or “del Leone”)
  • the ancient trebuchet, on the rocky summit to the east of the cliffs
  • the Porto Marina “Maria SS. della Libera”, with 310 moorings, integrated with Yacht Service and Nautical Club

Events in Rodi Garganico:

  • Carnival in Rodi (February-March)
  • Sagra della Arance (Orange fair) (April-May)
  • Offshore World Championship Class 3D (mid-June)
  • Patron Saint festa of Maria SS. della Libera and S. Cristoforo (1-2-3 July)
  • Rodi Jazz Fest (between the end of June and the beginning of July)
  • Festa di S. Rocco (third week in August)

Other ideas in the surrounding area

From a landscape, historical, naturalistic or religious point of view, there is certainly no shortage of ideas of great interest:

  • Archipelago of the Tremiti Islands
  • Tour of the coast and sea caves
  • Vico del Gargano, the “country of love” (one of the “most beautiful villages in Italy”)
  • Umbra Forest, in the heart of the Gargano National Park (protected natural area of 400 hectares, 800 metres above sea level)
  • Lesina and Varano lakes
  • San Giovanni Rotondo, the land where Padre Pio lived
  • Monte Sant’ Angelo, with the Sanctuary of S. Michele Arcangelo, one of the most famous sacred places in Europe (a World Heritage Site since 2011)
  • Abbey of S. Maria di Pulsano, an ancient Benedictine monastery
  • Archaeological site of Siponto

And then many sports activities, such as mountain biking, hiking, caving, horse racing, orienteering, windsurfing and kitesurfing.
