Grado: Tavernetta All'Androna

Piccola 6

Reviewed by: caplanco from CO, review #2195

When: 2006

This had been recommended to us by Bobby Stuckey at Frasca Ristorante, and he was right again. Lovely outdoor setting, with a nice room inside also.

Lunch for two with wine 87

The restaurant is tucked away in a small street behind a little church. We had called for directions when we got to Grado and, although finding a parking place was not easy, once we parked, we found the restaurant without a problem.

We were seated at an outside table on an awning covered patio. Michael had been unsure whether or not wed parked in a legitimate place so the waitress went with him to show him a safe place to park. I had a prosecco while I waited, and looked at the very interesting seafood menu.

The breads of the north are excellent. The bread basket contained pane con pepe and other nice breads.

We started with mixed "razor clams" (capelungho), scallops and crayfish. The capelungho are wonderful and addictive, like eating peanuts. Not at all like the large razor clams we get in the northwest.

We then shared large rigatoni type pasta with anchovies in fresh tomato sauce.

M had mixed grilled fish: branzino, soligo, robato, baby shark. I had spada alla Siciliana w/ capers, olives, and fresh pomodori. Both were fresh and delicious.
