Superb risotto, superb lamb stinco, superb dessert! A real find and great place for dinner while visiting the Palladian Villa Barbaro in Maser.

Directions: Off the SS 248 from Montebelluna toward Asolo-Bassano, follow the split of the road to the right toward Maser. Osteria Jodo is only about 100 meters on your left.

Osteria Jodo was recommended to us by some locals, and word is that it's become very popular locally. There were certainly no other Americans there during out visit; the waitstaff were gracious and welcoming on a blustery, wet evening.

I can't remember what my sister and my husband had, but my meal was outstanding. We started with some tasty bruschetta type antipasti. My primo was asparagus risotto; I've been served plenty of asparagus risotto in northern Italy, but this was absolutely the best ever. For secondo, I ordered the lamb stinco (or shinbone). It was falling off the bone delicious and was accompanied by roasted potatoes and roast asparagus. (I love being in asparagus country during asparagus season!) Dolce was a scrumptious almond souffletta which was both light and crunchy as well as sweet and rich. With wine and coffee, we paid about 30 each.
