We arrived at the Castle Superiore kind of by accident on a Monday afternoon in June. We were treated to a wonderful meal highlighting the local cherries which were in season. The service was ourstanding and the food was delicious, well worth the moderate price. To top it off the location is unique and spectatcular. If you are in Vicenza it is worth the trip.

If you are lucky enough to experience Ristorante al Castello Superiore's Asparagus Tasting Menu in late May and early June, you'll understand why people rave about this landmark restaurant. The revered white asparagus of Bassano del Grappa is prepared in every way imaginable.

I plan my business trips to Marostica specifically this time each year to indulge. This is not to be missed!

Buon Appetito!

Marostica is a beautiful small town near Bassano del Grappa that is known for its bi-annual chess game using humans and horses for the chess pieces. It also draws your eye from miles away because of large medieval town walls that climb the hill until they meet at the Castello Superiore. Driving to the restaurant is steep and curvy with a few narrow castle walls to navigate as you get near; a smaller car would be nice. To find your way from Marostica, watch for the Castello Superiore signs.

We've been to the old castle restaurant twice. It's great, with wonderful food, service, and views. The interior is inviting and the waiters are personable. We ate inside in January and this weekend, with the weather well into the 70's Farenheit, we opted for outside. Either location is great, though the views of the ancient castle walls lure me out if the weather's good enough. There are two very large unbrellas to shield the sun on the main section of the patio. There is another glassed in area on the side of the building with a retractable awning and heaters, making it comfortable on cooler days. Since the patio faces south, you get great sun and views over the entire Veneto region. On a dry clear day, you'd probably see the Adriatic.

We've eaten superb food characteristic of the Veneto region. Like all good Italian restaurants, you eat what is in season and fresh. Today, I had risotto asparagi which was unbelievably creamy and delicious; perhaps the best I've ever tasted. White asparagus from Bassano is in season. As a second, I chose capretto - young goat. Served with fresh spinach and round slices of grilled white polenta; it was a delicious mixture of flavors. My husband started with thin sliced tuna and a primi of seafood pasta. His second was baccala' di vicentina. It was bar none, the best he's eaten. We'll order it here again. It has a creamy consistency with decent sized pieces of cod and is served beside warm polenta. Tourists in Venice can only hope to get food this good. (My opinion: If you want to eat well for a reasonable price, get out of Venice).

If you're ever in the Marostica area, don't hesitate to drive (or take the quite steep walk) to the Catello Superiore. Though the prices are higher than other local places, their quality and environment are well matched to their prices. We spent 85 Euro today for an apetizer, two primi and two secondi (also had a "gift" from the chef & a glass of prosecco), a bottle of good Cabernet and a bottle of water.

Eating great Italian food in a medievel castle - it doesn't get any better than this!! We ate here on our trip and were very pleased with the place, food, and service. Here you find an authentic Italian dining experience. We couldn't read the menu (in Italian) and one of the waiters "fixed us up" with an affordable 5 course meal (114 euros total for the three of us). It was a highlight of our two weeks in Italy. Don't miss this chance if you are near this place.
