Our history

Water: symbol of transparency, origin of life. Essence that becomes matter.
Raw, natural, without filters.

Aqua Crua was born from the encounter between Francesco Dal Toso and Giuliano Baldessari. The former an entrepreneur and farmer in Barbarano Vicentino, the latter a chef with a childhood dream: running his own business. From their mix of ideas and dreams the idea of converting an old building in the centre of Barbarano Vicentino into a something more than just a simple country restaurant was born. They both want to create something unique for the town’s panorama, something special, that puts together one’s ideas and philosophy and the other’s organization and entrepreneurship.

A project which has lasted for two years, made of sacrifice, ideas, encounters. A path that has lead to the opening of Aqua Crua.
