I visited corte Zanella on boxing day with my husband to have a nice meal away from the family!
The place is easy to find with an ample parking area.
The restaurant is modern with a simple deco but very welcoming and warm.
Incredibly friendly and professional staff, very lovely ladies.
The menu is simple but yummy.
For starter I had a meringue of truffle with an egg yolk. Oh my... probably one of the tastiest dishes I've ever tried! Soft, melt in the mouth meringue, powerful truffle, velvety egg and crunchy bread. Heaven on a plate! I could it over and over again. The man had a selection of game ham: duck, stag, boar, deer, served with bread and pate. Then I had pasta with chestnuts, mushrooms and red onion pate. Sublime. And a very filling portion! Husband had a perfectly cooked "risotto col puntel" speciality from Mantova, being risotto with sausage served with a pork rib. Then he had pork (wow) and I had tuna steak. Ouch. Here's the only problem of the day... I asked for a very very raw tuna, but when it arrived it was overcooked for my liking. I didn't complained coz tuna is expensive, but it ruined it a bit. To finish off we had chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and zabaione, and a millefoglie. Oooh... lovely. And I was so full.
Great selection of wine. We chose lambrusco di Sorbara, a fizzy black, a favourite of mine.
To top it all, we received a visit from Ciccio, the owner's cat, that purringly sat on my knees... cuuute!
I cannot tell you how much we spent because tha man paid, but all the dishes on the menu went from 9 to 15 euros. Considering the quality of the food, more than reasonably priced.
I will surely go back!
