Sunday evening . The whole day spent in Verona at Vinitaly. Seen and learned a lot, to share with you on next days.
Returned to Mantua, Carlo and I were hungry. The evening before, while reaching the Hosteria Leon d’Oro, we had seen another little restaurant: Il Tiratappi.
We already knew the way to the restaurant: easy option and then our fatigue was so much … what would you have done?
Il Tiratappi is a nice, little restaurant in an old building whose chef and owner is from Sicily.
Sorry, but there is no website. You have to read our review.
So Carlo and I ate both traditional Mantua and Sicilian recipes.
My menu: prawns in potato crust, pasta with stracotto sauce and almond granita with warm Pan Brioche. All mouth-watering!
My husband’s menu: Mantua salami with grilled polenta, the same pasta dish and a caramelized apple pie. He was very satisfied too!
We paired our menu with Sicilian wines. White Etna for me and red Etna for Carlo.
Do you know the best thing? They served only a glass of wine … in other words you are not obliged to order the whole bottle!
You can find Il Tiratappi restaurant here: Piazza Leon Battista Alberti n.30 tel 0376 322366 – Mantova
The bill? more or less the same of the previous evening.
