Our Story

My father, Antonio Santelia has been importing flavours and culinary traditions from the Amalfi Coast for more than 30 years. Both of our restaurant’s menus reflect pure Italian flavours and are composed of new and revisited classic dishes, that combined with our extensive wine lists from different regions of Italy, create a real Italian dining experience.

Don Giovanni at The Leatherne Bottel has brought the Amalfi Coast to Oxfordshire and with it’s 150 cover innovative al fresco dining area and inside restaurant, it is an all year round venue.

I have been working with my father for as long as I can remeber and have to thank him for everything I know, our relationship is more than just father and son, we’re business partners and best friends!
