I will start by letting you know, that as just the name gives a hint: this is an Italian restaurant, with pasta as specific, and no pizza.
Tried various times when visiting Brasov to get a free table, yet it never happened.
So, this year “made my homework” by booking a week ahead.
And just today, at 1 PM there I was.
A tiny restaurant, filled with people in a home like and relaxed atmosphere.
Where waiters were nice from minute 1 , and where the fresh dishes of the day were recommended warmly.
Glad I went for one of them as first course: mushroom cream soup seasoned with fresh black truffles and thyme.
Dare I say that it was the best of it’s kind I’ve had in a very long time?
I so dare 🙂
The texture so velvety and light in the same time, and the truffle adding an extra oomph.
Coming from a cold day outside, the soup felt like a warm hug.
Strangely, after finishing it, I was craving for some more Italian goodness.
And yes… did I mention pasta in the beginning? Well, these guys make their own pasta.
You name it: ravioli, tagliatelle, rigatoni, farfalle… it’s an art and they successfully master it.
My secondo piati (second dish) for this lunch: homemade rigatoni with fresh Italian sausages.
Oh yes, each of them bathed in a perfectly balanced creamy white sauce, and sprinkled with crispy bits of bacon.
It was absolutely delightful, and I will come back for sure to this tiny culinary gem.
If I recommend visiting? Absolutely.
No wonder here people come and go, and come and go in a crazy rhythm…
Indulge yourself in goodness and do share if you liked is as much too.
