Osteria del Treno is a ‘circolo’ or club. In Italian society, a circolo is a local spot to meet friends, play cards and discuss current affairs over an aperitivo or a bite to eat. This one, it seems, had its genesis with railway workers but is now a restaurant that specialises in local food – ‘zero kilometri’ if that can be believed.
And eat we did: papardelle with vegetables and a taleggio cream, roast baby chicken stuffed with sausage and served with apple, onion and plum sauce, snails in tomato sauce and a plate of mixed cheeses: goat with juniper in olive oil, piquant and sweet cows’ cheeses, washed rind cheese, pecorino and a blue buffalo milk cheese, with fig mostarda and chestnut honey. Every cheese had its maker named and located. It was a great experience for foodies in an interesting and authentic setting.
