A gem of a little trattoria in a quiet little corner on Via dei Musei, right next to the Capitolium Roman Temple.
Though fairly small in size, it feels homely and cosy, Limited number of tables, so if planning to have dinner on Friday or Saturday reservations are recommended. Also open for Sunday lunch.
Food is generally excellent. Everyone gets an appetizer of a piece of Parmigiano cheese fried golden and crisp. I also liked their sparkling Franciacorta wine.
The food in general is good with fairly large portions. Seasonal items figure on the menu along with regular items. It was porcini season when I visited, and the tagliatelle with porcini in a light cream sauce was fragrant and more-ish. Also tried the pumpkin ravioli in a butter sauce, also delicious, but a bit on the rich side unless you're quite hungry.
For the mains, I tried the "orecchio di elefante" (elephant ear) which is an extremely large piece of breaded pork cutlet (hence the name), very juicy and tender and full of flavour. The Vitello Tonnato which I tried on another occasion was delicious but a bit salty for my liking.
The dessert is wonderful, especially the Tiramisu. It tastes slightly different to your normal run-of-the-mill kind you get at other restaurants - though still light and creamy I liked that there was a more solid bite to it with a light buttery aftertaste. On asking Chiara the chef she readily shared her recipe with me! Maura the owner is also warm and welcoming.
Will be going there the next time I am in Brescia.
