Randomly on the Bracciano lake on business, looking for a place to have lunch. It's slightly raining as I walk on the lake side and this place is the one with the good awning on their veranda. Little did I know, they are a food gem! Friendly and hospitable the owner (Gianluca - I asked) has an earnest attitude and seems rather passionate about their recipes as he tells me about a couple of things that are not available on the menu (after all it's Tuesday and fresh sea fish is much harder to come by right after the weekend - they are closed on Mondays).
So I ask him to recommend an appetizer and a pasta dish form me, and sure enough I get one of the best red Sicilian shrimp tartare I ever had, and a glorious tonnarelli (square thick spaghetti) with amatriciana-style octopus and cherry tomato sauce.
The beautiful lakeside scenery, the breeze that has blown the rain away and a nice glass of dry Sauvignon also don't hurt.
