At 9pm on the Saturday we were looking for a dinner venue. Crossing Campo San Angelo we noticed some diners at the open air tables of this Hosteria so we decided to try it. It was an interesting experience.
For starters my wife had gnocci in a heavy meat sauce. The texture was too soggy. I had the local pasta spaghetti, which was quite good. For mains I had the shellfish choice and what arrived consisted of 2 scallops accompanied by 2 large prawns, with some accompaniments. The other main was chicken with a rich sauce. We had ordered a side dish of potato wedges but these didn’t arrive until the end of the main course. They were very good but came too late. They had obviously been forgotten about by the staff.
For dessert we had the ravioli fruit which was tasty. The waiter said the tiramisu was experimental so decided to experience it. I think it was one experiment too far, being like no tiramisu I have ever seen. It arrived in 2 separate old style jars, the liquid topping in one with a straw and dry biscuit type crumble in the second, accompanied with a mini magnum ice cream.
We were presented with a complementary liqueur at the end. It was herbal in taste and contained in a bulbous glass bottle with a wedge seal. The cylindrical half frosted glasses reminded us of the lamp shades on some of our lights at home.
Even though we would not return for the food, I have to say that throughout the young staff were very friendly and effusive in their enthusiasms for their offerings. But the offerings were not quite what we like foodwise.
