This was the perfect location to be for a group of around 50 people. The customer service and attention to detail was top notch. Each of the rooms are decorated uniquely since this used to be an old home. The food was awesome and we enjoyed preparing for the AJA certification for wedding & event planners.

The Italian Story

La Posta Vecchia is an intriguing witness to Italian history. A ‘voluptuous seaside resort’ favored by Roman imperators, a Renaissance villa for the noble Orsini family and home to John Paul Getty a billionaire who filled it with Italian art treasures. Finally with typical Italian passion, Roberto Sciò who confesses to a love affair with beauty, found La Posta Vecchia irresistible and made it his family home.

This rich history has been captured by todays your host, daughter of Roberto and creative director and Italy’s contemporary tastemaker Marie-Louise Sciò. La Posta Vecchia balances the Baroque exuberance of a Fellini film with her renowned artful elegance. So guests live in refined style above Roman mosaics and ancient artefacts.

It is a living museum; as you enter La Posta Vecchia you are presented with a glorious 17th Century tapestry, dignified marble busts of Roman emperors Flavio Vespasiano and Agrippa, and an antiquarian map by Giovanni Battista Piranesi one of the greatest printmakers in the world. This is a taste of the magnificent furnishings that adorn every wall and room of La Posta Vecchia, a collection made by Getty with his art historian Federico Zeri.

Guests are invited to live in elegant style amongst some five hundred treasures, just as the private collection was intended. During Getty’s restoration of La Posta Vecchia, a Roman villa dating back to the 2nd century BC was revealed. First in the gardens, where the ruins remain open to nature and our guests, then beneath the Renaissance foundations.

The Archaeological Authority carried out excavation work, discovering ancient walls, colorful mosaics, African and Greek marble as well as an array of plate, amphorae and ampules. Today our guests have a private view of these valuable discoveries in La Posta Vecchia’s museum on the lower ground floor.

One of his many passions is perfecting Pasta Pomodoro, for which, like everything he cooks, he demands the absolute best ingredients.

Antonio is always very attentive to local products but if he sees something truly special, he is going to buy it for his guests be that Icelandic cod or Ronce oysters. Chef Antonio is fierce on these small details, which is what makes him a superb chef and La Posta Vecchia a truly fine Italian restaurant. Season opening from April – November.
