Delightful little restaurant tucked away in Stradella. What a great addition to eating out in this town. The ambience is just lovely with painted pale green stencilled walls & crisp White tablecloths. There are different areas to eat both inside and out, weather permitting. On the outside it has a lovely little terrace and romantic small courtyard. The owner to this new restaurant is a delightful lady whom we have known before from another smart restaurant in the area, so she knows how to do everything well. We were in a party of six and had different starters and mains. The philosophy she has is good core ingredients served in a beautiful, but simple way. We were given a pre starter in gorgeous little bowls, a potato soup with a swirl of creamy cheese on top, lovely. Three of us had the delicious scallops. Two others had the Orata ..sea bream thinly sliced suchi style fish. Another had Foie Gras and the other one had Egg crocante. All of which were absolutely wonderful. The main courses we ate were branzino ..sea bass, baccala.... Salt cod cooked in a tempura, duck breast with plums, and three Filletto di Manzo ...fillet steak which had been cooked with a tasty crust around it. One was served without the crust, so as to be gluten free. Every dish was very good. The steaks were like butter they were so soft. All were served on the most beautiful white porcelain platters. Presentation perfect. For deserts two had the selection plates, two others had the sorbets and two the best creme brûlée we have ever eaten!! Exceptional....!!!
We will definitely put this delightful restaurant on our list of must go to's when in Italy!

The atmosphere as you walk inside is mesmerising, it is a small niche in paradise. The terrace is a lovely space to dine and the inside is decorated beautifully.
The appetisers are a great prelude to what is to fallow, we had the Sea Scallops that were delicious with a new twist in a green apple sauce, the cold and hot plate was a new experience. The Battuta di Fassona was exquisite, on a bed of burrata and a very generous quantity of truffle shavings and quail egg.
As mains we had The Fritto di Pesce, it was light and extremely tasty, salt was perfect and you feel every taste bud working to flavor the gamberi, calamari, anchovies and vegetables and to our surprise a small amount of pineapple. The Salmon in Zucchini Crust was cooked perfectly and had enough sauce that you finished everything without feeling that something was missing. The Vitello cooked in Souve was tender with a light crust of anchovies and mixed vegetables, definitely the protagonist on the plate.
The portions are perfect and if you behave an not eat all of the amazing fresh bread that is served you will have a complete culinary experience. The staff is very attentive to every need.
We have gone multiple times for dinner and every time we have experienced something new and marvelous.
