Located in the Historic Center of Forlimpopoli, near Cesena, inside the age-old but restored convent of the Church of the Servi, Casa Artusi is a renowned oenogastronomic center that draws tourists from around the world, interested in its role as one of several important arbiters of Italian cuisine’s cultural and economic value.
Casa Artusi was founded in the name of cultured gastronomist from Forlimpopoli, Pellegrino Artusi, man of letters and merchant, writer and gastronome, who can be found in many homes, both in Italy and abroad, through his manual La Scienza in Cucina e l’Arte di Mangiar Bene (Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well).
This gastronomical guide is a collection of recipes, the fruit of the author’s innumerable trips and experiments. Reprinted and translated in several major languages, the book is still considered a traditional reference for the cooks and gourmands of the world.
Casa Artusi, built through restructuring work carried out on the monumental complex of a church, Chiesa dei Servi, stretches out over 2800 square metres split into different areas with a range of functions, all dealing with different aspects of gastronomic culture.
Casa Artusi boasts a library, restaurant, cooking school and event space, all geared towards enhancing and promoting typical homestyle cooking traditions through research, training and communication, with special attention towards local gastronomy.
The Restaurant, the Tavern, the Wine Cellar
In keeping with both Artusi’s philosophy and the area of Italy in which it is located, the Casa Artusi Restaurant tastefully serves home cookery. Many of Artusi’s dishes can be enjoyed at the restaurant, according to the season. Fresh, home-made pasta and recipes from the tradition of Emilia-Romagna are also served at Casa Artusi, prepared and brought to table paying great attention to both the season and the quality of the ingredients.
Rooms are set out over several floors and can accommodate up to 90 guests. The restaurant space can be increased to hold 150 for special events.
L’Osteria di Casa Artusi offers more informal catering and an extensive selection of wines, served both by the glass and by the bottle. Meals include both a buffet of typical foods from the area, and dishes served from the kitchen. Ristorante Casa Artusi, is open for both lunches and dinners, whilst the l’Osteria serves dinner only.
Around 200 different kinds of wine from both Emilia and Romagna are on both show and sale in the Casa Artusi wine cellar, in virtue of its affiliation with the Enoteca Regionale Emilia-Romagna (Regional wine shop of Emilia-Romagna). A range of products from the area, such as spirits and traditional balsamic vinegar can also be purchased here.
