“New Modern, Contemporary Restaurant in Traditional Environment”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

An old family trattoria in Sarre, just west of Aosta has been completely renovated into a very modern and slick looking restaurant in contrast to most of the restaurants in the Aosta Valley. Open only a month at time of this review we tried both lunch and dinner at different dates. A sign advertising lunch for 12 euros on the SS26 provincial road, between Aosta and Sarre, pulled us in the first time. There was a quick freebie starter, and a couple choices for primi and secondi piatti; essentially pasta and meat options. Food was tasty and filling.

On our supper excursion we chose from a select menu. The tortelli stuffed with ricotta was a little thick but otherwise flavourful; the rabbit dish was a strip of meat wrapped around a pate, tasty with a white sauce; probably the most popular at the table however was the first course crespelle, an Italian version of crepes. Dinner for four, two courses each plus starters, couple bottles of wine, coffees and digestivo totalled 120 euros.

Overall the food was good and the hosts, members of the original family trattoria, were attentive and happy to offer suggestions. Tastefully decorated there was a slight cafeteria echo sound to the place. Rooms and apartments to be rented later this year as well as a patio just off the ground floor restaurant. Floor to ceiling plate glass windows and sliding doors to the patio offer good views of the south side of the valley.

Location isn't obvious given the building is set back from the road and up a narrow drive amongst orchards and vines. Best way to find it is to look for the Conad City grocery store on the SS26 directly opposite Le Resto.
