We had a wonderful stay at Agriturismo ai Casoni – honestly if we could we would stay there a few more days. This truly is an amazing place, a mom and pop operation that prides itself on great service, amazing food and wonderful atmosphere. Helped by their 3 kids, all off of whom work in the kitchen, preparing some really delightful and phenomenal meals, while the parents look after the front of the house. Andrea, who is a professionally trained chef, his brother and their sister with some additional staff prepare all the meals. There is no set menu, but there are two dishes which are always available plus whatever else the chef makes that he buys fresh that morning. Everything is home made, the jams, the meats, even the bread is baked on site. The chef offers daily specials which are mouthwatering. From cold thin sliced beef, and home made gnocchi with butter and cheese, to ravioli which cheese and bacon, and duck pasta, duck roulade and pork steaks everyday there is always something new on the menu – all of which is great and the desserts too are to die for.
If you are lucky to get into one of the 5 available rooms, do yourself a favour get up and enjoy the provided breakfast with meats, and cheese and jam and of course some cakes – a cafe or cappuccino or both is also available. Don’t forget to make your dinner reservations while you can. The restaurant is always full of locals coming in either for lunch or dinner, always celebrating something. I think this was one of the most relaxing stays we ever had, despite our busy exploration schedule we could relax and recharge in peace. The Ai Casoni made red wine and Prosecco is not only great but it is a good value as well, naturally we picked up a small case of each to enjoy at home and remember this great place. Thank you again for your hospitality – we loved it.
