Enthused by the rave reviews here, we drove up the steep hill to find this trattoria. Unfortunately being very hot and surrounded by vineyards, it was awash with insects and no anti-insect devices were present as we saw in other restaurants in this area. My ham starter was abundant but not over fresh, the bigoli all'anatra a bit bland, children's roast chicken was fine, but the maiale in crosta was a little disappointing. We tried the local wine Ca Lustra 2015, also disappointing as it was too spicy. However my real complaint was that the owner made a fuss over my wishing to pay by international card (she only wanted bancomat or cash) and only let me use the visa after I insisted I didn't want to pay cash and listened to a tirade over the high commissions the restaurant pays to use them(!)

We were looking for a classical trattoria near Arqua Petrarca & found Trattoria da Oci. Wonderful pasta, excellent steak & pork + killer cakes & tiramisu. Great service (in English). Inexpensive. If driving from Arqua, the road goes through some gorgeous scenery. Try the house wine.

Visiting trattoria da Oci for lunch was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. We stayed in nearby Galzignano Terme and found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. I was impressed by the reviews and became keen to check it out. We were welcomed by the hostess, who spoke very good English and was very friendly and helpful. The menu looked so good, we couldn't make up our mind on what to chose for our main course. Our hostess suggested to have a 'double' main. Which we did, as you can see on the photo. Everything we ate was just tremendous: the entree, the main and the desert. I can not fault anything about our visit to da Oci, it was truly a 5 star experience!
