Cycle tour from Vallegio sul Mincio - Culinary delights
I find this book indispensable. Sorry, this is no stupid surreptitious advertising, I think this book, which is published every year, is really indispensable for travellers to Italy.
This tour was planned for our rest day, because of Vallegio to reach in 20 - 30 minutes by bike. We arrived a bit too early, i.e. it was not open yet. But on request we were allowed to sit down on the terrace which was overshadowed by trees.
What a sublime feeling to be able to enjoy this view over the Mincio Valley as well as the neighbouring region of Mantova all alone and from the front line.
When the restaurant officially opened and we were allowed to order, we decided once to have Futtuccine ai Funghi (ribbon noodles with mushrooms) and once Bigoli al ragu di carne (thick noodles with meat sauce) as a starter.
The main course should be Faraona alle olive (partridge with olives) and Stinco al Forno (knuckle of pork from the oven).
Everything was perfect. The regional wine recommendation was always right and the price was within an absolutely manageable range. You can find wines from Veneto at a fair price/performance ratio at Wine-Italy*. More about the topic Wine and other noble drinks or others Wine Experiences under the respective link.
