The last time that my wife and I visited Bellaria was in 2005 at a family gathering. Bellaria was originally built and operated by my Italian family and remained so until 1980 when it changed ownership. The current owners continue to operate Bellaria with the same care and quality as in the past. In fact, they have done an excellent job redesigning and redecorating the trattoria so that today it is unquestionably one of the best, most attractive in the Rivergaro, Italy area.
On this occasion my wife and I stopped at Bellaria for a light pranzo. We both chose the anolini piacentini, a spinach and ricotta stuffed pasta served in a butter sauce and covered with Parmesan cheese (formaggio grattugiata). This very tasty dish was preceded by a house salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. Naturally, this was accompanied by a house white wine. Delicious!
As a bonus, we were seated by the windows that overlooked the Trebbia River (Fiume Trebbia) and the hills beyond the river with the scenic Castello di Stato and the Chiesa di Stato that made the panoramic view even more pleasing.
Bellaria is frequented mostly by locals (they know the best places). But, if you are a tourist passing through or visiting Rivergaro be sure to stop at Bellaria for an excellent pranzo or la cena.
