Trattorie etc in the Veneto?
We will be driving around in the Veneto visiting a couple of famous gardens, namely Sigurta near Valeggio sul Mincio, and Barbarigo near Valsanzibio. Any recommendations for a couple of nice lunches nearby?
There seem to be plenty of restaurants in Valeggio sul Mincio, an attractive town - Fred Plotkin recommends Il Bue d'Oro (note, this may be closed for restoration now) and Antica Locanda del Mincio - the latter has a beautiful riverside setting http://www.anticalocandamincio.it/ITA....
. Alla Borsa http://www.ristoranteborsa.it/eng/ind... and Antica Trattoria la Grotta (latter in nearby Santa Lucia ai Monte) are others which have received recommendations. You are also not far from Mantova with a number of good restaurants as well as its cultural attractions, and the rice growing area south of Verona on the other side of the Mincio, even Sirmione.
This is an area where I would try the fresh water fish and rice specialties of the region - the cuisine is quite diversified and interesting
