LOCATION Locanda La Greppia is a family inn located in the Ricetto di Candelo. With just a few covers it offers an intimate and very suggestive atmosphere as it is located in a medieval building with exposed stone. Despite this, and what you can think of, it is very clean inside without traces of dust or cobwebs.
Minimal and functional, with a small open kitchen, it is the perfect place to take a break after visiting the village. It is also the only Ricetto inn open on Saturday for lunch.
SERVICE The service is basically composed of the cook in the kitchen and the waitress in the room. Two single people who, having to take care of everything, offer a service that is not necessarily very fast. Despite this, the girl who serves the tables is very kind, a true welcome teacher. The wait is above all at the beginning, but once the kitchen starts the waiting times are normalized, however remaining always moderate.
MENU The restaurant offers a menu that changes from day to day so you won’t find a paper menu inside the restaurant. The day we went, the menu consisted of: Beef tartare, Vitello tonnato, Agnolotti with ragu, Risotto with lavender, Roast beef with cherry tomatoes and cheese trio.
A few simple and substantial dishes, so much so that one course will be enough to fill you up, and cooked in a genuine and home-made way. Desserts are just as tasty, especially the chocolate cream and custard, the latter with a delicious lemon note. Served hot it has an enveloping taste and can be enjoyed with cookies!
BILL 69,00 $ in three people for: Tris di Formaggi (maccagno, first salt and young toma served with pear slices, walnut kernels and honey. They are three big beautiful pieces, excellent dish to share), Tartare di Manzo (impeccably and very seasoned light and served with cherry tomatoes and salad), Vitello Tonnato (very good and light, perhaps with a little too much oil in the tuna sauce), Creamy chocolate, 2 Creme Pasticcere (very good, but maybe a little too heavy that weighs down the end meal, just a portion of it in two), 3 coffees (served with dried accompanying fruit), 3 glasses of red wine and a bottle of water.
