Recipes

 

From the moment the old tavern door opens, a roar of laughter echos out, spilling across the valley.  As you step into the Trattoria, your senses are captivated. Here, owners dine together as family, on meals cooked over fire and served by candlelight. 

The Trattoria has become the epicenter, the gathering place where each day ends the way it began, enjoying good food with great company.

For those of you who haven’t visited the Hamlet and experienced Dina’s casalinga cuisine in the trattoria I’ cche c’é c’é, below are photos and accompanying recipes of her top dishes for you to try at home.
