Based on a friend's recommendation, I took two friends to dine at the Casa Cantigi restaurant in the Papandayan hotel. We arrived at around 8.00 p.m. and were somewhat surprised that there were no other guests; in fact, we remained the only diners throughout the evening. The ambience is very classy without being over the top. Service was very friendly and attentive. We liked the extensive wine list and went for a Bardolino, which was excellent. Unfortunately, the menu lacks any prosciutto, salume (even bresaola), which would make excellent starters. Definitely a shortcoming. We settled for minestrone. Recalling our friend's recommendation (who had particularly pointed out the pasta on offer), all three of us chose pasta dishes as main courses, and I can say that they were delighted with our respective choices. The dessert menu includes some wonderful favourites. I went for the tiramisù which was great in its texture, but it tasted devoid of any Marsala (or, indeed, any other liquor), which also marks it down. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for its pasta, but would welcome a somewhat better choice of cold starters in the form of cured meats. And a bit of a kick in the tiramisù.
