When: 2007

Trattoria specializing in "cucina stagional casalinga" - carni alla griglia a funghi. Patronized by local residents.

Directions: SS248 East from Bassanno to Asolo. At the rotante before the road up to Asolo, follow signs to Pagnano. It is about 3 km on the right. Also a road from Asolo near the Cipriani to Pagnano.

Italy for three weeks in the Slow Travel Mode.

This was our 2nd visit to Trattoria Ponte Peron in the last two years and it one of our favorites. My cousins live nearby and we treated them for their September birthdays. Patronized by locals and I have never seen a tourist there-except us.

When we were there in 2005 there was a party of locals celebrating a class reunion and before it ended we were part of the group - drinking prosecco to the early hours.

Atmosphere of a first class trattoria with lots of wood and two working fireplaces. The linens alone will bring you back - apricot colored and starched to perfection.

No set menu - the waitress will announce the choice of antipasti-primi, secondo, dolci or cheese and fruit if desired.

We knew what we wanted for the main meal - t-bone steak grilled to perfection. But our entire selections are listed below.

Primi of 3 pappardelle con porcini a generous portion and 1 crespelle which is a rolled pasta filled with vegetables and then topped with besciamella and baked in the oven.

Secondo of 4 T-bone steaks each of which was about 1.5 lbs. My cousin Riccardo even knows what macellaria they purchsed their meats. We went there the next day to purchase meat and 4 stinco (whole pork shins) which his wife roasted in the oven with herbs and wine -- YUM!!!!!!!!!!

Contorni of grilled procini, grilled mixed vegetables and roasted potato.

4 lemon sorbet mixed with prosecco to drink before dessert (sgroppino).

Dolci of crostata de mele, raspeberry semifreddo with sauce and a chocotale cake baked with soft chocolate inside.

Caffe and also 2 liters of local red wine.

The entire bill was 113 euros which at the time translated to about $150 for 4 people - a bargain compared to the high class steak houses in the USA.

You can choose your meal courses - leaving out any antipasti, primi or dessert and you can also choose local excellent cheese and fruit for dessert.

I highly recommend this trattoria.
