If you are a professional restaurant critic or a local you can reach your conclusions based on a number of visits. If you are passing through, first impressions are all you have to go on-and your life experience. Michelin rates this restaurant as a Bib Gourmand and the only restaurant recommended in town. So, of course, we gave it a try. We were underwhelmed.
Would have to say the service was cordial and professional. Our pasta course was very good, but not enhanced by being served at room temperature. A very lovely salad was shared. Skipping the local specialties of horse meat and donkey meat, and salami, the latter served everywhere in the region, we would have been quite content with a fine dessert to complete a light lunch. The desserts were adequate, but nothing to write home about.
The waiter made a point of saying he was serving us house bread. Pity, it wasn't made today. There is no wine list. The restaurant, though takes pride in their wine selection. I prefer to make my own choices. True, they may have a strong idea of what wines go best with their dishes, but that should still be the choice of the customer. Not knowing what they had, I mentioned two Italian whites that we enjoy. The waiter brought out two bottles of decent wines from the Veneto and Alto Adige. Certainly acceptable, but I don't know if there was another bottle in stock I would have preferred.
This is an agreeable restaurant in a very faded spa town. Perhaps we would have been happier with other dishes on the menu. Michelin is usually quite reliable. Not today.
