On a Friday evening walking along the deserted streets of the sleepy village of Montagu, we were beginning to despair of finding an eatery which would appeal to both of us. We spotted an Italian flag and entered the little quaint establishment. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and we suddenly felt transported to a little village in Italy. Old traditional Italian songs were playing in the background and the few tables were all occupied except one. We took this to be a sign and were about to sit when we realised that the restaurant is not licenced and we had not brought any wine with us. One of the friendly locals kindly donated one of his bottles of wine and we sat down to a wonderful dinner. The dinner menu changes regularly and is quite small, yet utterly delicious. The pasta is handmade and the fresh ingredients can clearly be tasted in the sauces. We both ate crostini with a variety of toppings to start and we both had pasta with a sausage and fresh tomato sauce as main course. We ended the meal with coffee and choccolate salami. The service was good and it was nice to see the couple who own the restaurant coming to the tables for feedback on the meals. We so enjoyed our meal that we returned for lunch on the following day to taste the Spaghetti Carbonara which was really something special. If in Montagu I would definitely go back again. Anyone wanting to eat at Piccolo Tesoro should, however, phone ahead as they are not open every night of the week as they are more of a daytime establishment.
