“Food Worth Driving Hundreds of Miles For”

OK, I don’t want to brag. But people do travel an awfully long way for our food.

Late one night, one of our regulars turned up with a couple of friends – having driven over 430km (270 miles) from Lucerne, Switzerland, just to eat some of our specialty slow-roasted pork shanks.

“I wanted some decent food,” he said.

Or there’s the “capriolo”. We take a traditional cut of venison (deer) and simmer it gently for 4 hours in local white wine, mountain herbs and a secret blend of spices until meltingly tender. This recipe alone is over 150 years old, having been handed down from generation to generation.

And I haven’t even mentioned the fresh egg fettuccine with wild boar ragu…

The traditional cowherds’ gnocchi of the region – known as gnocchi sbatui

The wonderful local cheeses and salami we serve

Or the host of other traditional, seasonal northern Italian specialities, from polenta and risotto to fresh egg pasta and slow-cooked meat ragu.
