Delightful little restaurant tucked away in Stradella. What a great addition to eating out in this town. The ambience is just lovely with painted pale green stencilled walls & crisp White tablecloths. There are different areas to eat both inside and out, weather permitting. On the outside it has a lovely little terrace and romantic small courtyard. The owner to this new restaurant is a delightful lady whom we have known before from another smart restaurant in the area, so she knows how to do everything well. We were in a party of six and had different starters and mains. The philosophy she has is good core ingredients served in a beautiful, but simple way. We were given a pre starter in gorgeous little bowls, a potato soup with a swirl of creamy cheese on top, lovely. Three of us had the delicious scallops. Two others had the Orata ..sea bream thinly sliced suchi style fish. Another had Foie Gras and the other one had Egg crocante. All of which were absolutely wonderful. The main courses we ate were branzino ..sea bass, baccala.... Salt cod cooked in a tempura, duck breast with plums, and three Filletto di Manzo ...fillet steak which had been cooked with a tasty crust around it. One was served without the crust, so as to be gluten free. Every dish was very good. The steaks were like butter they were so soft. All were served on the most beautiful white porcelain platters. Presentation perfect. For deserts two had the selection plates, two others had the sorbets and two the best creme brûlée we have ever eaten!! Exceptional....!!!
We will definitely put this delightful restaurant on our list of must go to's when in Italy!
