Quickie Ravenna Report

jangita | Apr 27, 201809:14 AM

We spent two nights in Ravenna with two good, if not great meals:

Trattoria del Gallo:
This place was founded in 1909 and has been a family run restaurant for 4 generations. The food was very good. Outstanding was the pasta dish: tagliatelli with Spugnole/morels and prosciutto—fantastic! We also had a little artichoke flan app and veal cotoletto with sesame for an entree. The veal was the weakest dish as the breading was just too heavy for the veal. We drank 3 glasses of a local red blend from Forli which I liked a lot. And the dessert was home made lemon sorbet with fresh fruit and a whole plate full of meringue cookies. Sharing all of this worked and I wasn’t too too full at the end. Our tab was €67

Antica Botega Felice:
Dinner we very good. We shared a little zucchini “flan” with a super rich parmigiano sauce. We each got our own pasta dish. Mine was green cappelletti (like tortellini with a thicker pasta) with mortadella and cheese sauce. Fabulous! Ken had the the typical white cappelletti with sausage and wine sauce. There was plenty of nutmeg in the fillings and while Ken’s was homey and earthy, mine was rich and cheesey. We drank a bottle of sangiovese wine from around here, Romagna. And we shared a big salad. And had a bottle of €22 local sangiovese wine which I am sorry I don't remember the name of.
Tab was €82
