Our project

De Novo e d’Antico Locanda is a lovingly restored restaurant in Cori, a town in the tradition-rich province of Latina which dates back to the 7th/6th century BC.

Recently acquired by the Morucci family, this once-forgotten venue has been brought back to life with the support and direction of Simone Moroni, and offers both tradition and innovation. We serve exceptional food in beautiful surroundings, with an informal atmosphere and friendly staff who are always ready to welcome you in with a smile.
