Locanda "Al Monstero di Rolle"


When you are reading this, we shall be on a flight home from Venezia!

We found this wonderful restaurant in the Slow Food Guide, and enjoyed every course! It was a bit remote, going on our list of fabulous places we can't believe we ever found! After 15 minutes on dark remote curvy roads that even the GPS was clueless about, we saw a light down an unmarked street. If we had blinked, we would have missed it!

Total price: 30 Euro per person with wine and coffee.

We loved all the old pots and lids hanging everywhere, and on the walls!



There were three antipasti: salumi, mortadella and cheese, very thin slices of fried zucchini and eggplant with sauce gratin:




Next came butternut squash risotto in a squash bowl and tagliatelle with fresh porcini:



Wednesday is grilled meat night, so out came a green salad and a platter of grilled turkey, pork and tagliata!


Of course there were dolci and coffee too!



Buona Notte!

It looks like you've had a wonderful vacation. Thanks for allowing me to tag along.


Palma, I have so enjoyed reading about your trip. Beautiful photos. I briefly was in the region years ago, and would love to return.

Another fabulous dinner! I would like to find a recipe for the butternut squash risotto - sounds yummy!

Looks like a special way to end your trip. I hope you have a safe flight home.

Barb Cabot:

What a find...and you look so happy!


Beautiful photos to end a magnifcent blog!
The risotto in the hollowed out squash...love it!!
Your anniversary/honeymoon trip was fun to follow :D I'll have a "sneak peek" of the Dolomites when I go to Venice...a day trip. I'm sure I will take a zillion photos!

So glad you and Brad had such a blast!!

Palma-Thanks for sharing your trip with us. It appears that you and Brad had a wonderful time. Scott and I leave early Saturday morning, and are so excited to return to Italy. Hope your jet-lag isn't too bad.
