We travelled up to a small village in the hills and Sue and Phil had the degustation menu that included specialities of the region. Raw marinated veal, vegetables, ravioli in a light broth sauce, veal roast and chocolate pudding. All washed down with a local wine. We also tried the tiramisu which was very light. A fantastic meal.
