Most of the restaurants in the main pedestrian areas were heaving so I headed just away from the centre a little and found the Trattoria Al Boccone which had several spare tables. I perched on one of the bar stools set either side of a small table just inside the restaurant almost on the pavement. The place has a very authentic Italian feel with one room's tables covered in pink table-cloths and the other in a green check. There is a large kitchen area/antipasto display in the second room with chefs constantly checking and adding to the fare. The service was very welcoming and a large weisse (white) beer (€3.90) arrived in no time. The waiter, on discovering that I was a vegetarian, organised a plate of very tasty antipasto (€7.50) which included artichokes, green beans and peppers. For the main I had the ravioli stuffed with walnuts and aubergine (€12.50) which was excellent. The half-dozen pasta parcels were served in a luxurious butter sauce and were the best I've had for about 15 years. I had swapped to a carafe of the Primitivo red wine by then (€9 for 0.25l - 'un quartino'). The risotto that got a bad review before has disappeared and the cannelloni is now on the menu!
I have to say that this was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time and I felt totally unhurried and very welcome. The whole place, staff included, create a typical Italian space in this very Bavarian part of the world.
