Opened in 2018 in Kuşçular Village by Seray and Ozan couple, (8037 Sok. No:3) Vino Locale is a perfect address for gastronomy lovers, that is also included in the ‘Urla Vineyard Route’.
The elegantly designed stone building located in a green garden, perfectly represent the architecture, hospitality and authenticity of the region. Their constantly changing menu includes tastes prepared from fresh local ingredients such as artichokes and olives, guaranteed to offer a real feast to your soul.
Ozan, son of a working mother and father started to cook at the age of 8 with recipes of Emine Beder, a famous Turkish food columnist, has developed his kitchen skills and started inviting his friends to serve his pastas, meats and chocolate pastries. After working in the kitchens of Mia Mensa and Hyatt Regency Hotel, he married Seray whom he fell in love with at the university. After that, they started to dream together of creating a gastronomy address that offers changing tasting menus with seasonal fresh products from the land and trees, and living in the green landscape of Urla that resembles countrysides of Italy or France.
They have completed the construction in 6 months after they bought the garden in Yağcılar village. Vino Locale is the outcome of a creative and passionate story that takes its guests to a journey among the handmade tastes. No frozen products are used in their recipes and all the ingredients are fresh and seasonal.
Seray, the landlady, adds her elegant and delightful taste to every detail including presentation, service, music, ambiance and decoration. You can feel the excitement of this young couple as soon as you enter the building and can’t help but admire their talent about creating experimental and creative tastes where every month means another journey in their cuisine.
We strongly recommend you to visit this gastronomy address which is open throughout the year. Since it is a restaurant serving alcohol, there’s an age limit of 15 and the maximum capacity of the place is 30 persons, so reservation is recommended.
We should also add that Vino Locale has been rewarded 3 “pearls” in İncili Gastronomy Awards.
