Il Trillo restaurant with an amazing open terrace

15 Jul

Il Trillo is a very special place, just few curves above the city of Massa, few kilometres north of Forte de Marmi, in Versilia.

The restaurant offers real genuine food, prepared and presented in a contemporary way. Fresh ingredients and accurate preparation served in one of the more beautiful terrace of the Versilia and Apuan Riviera.

Under lemon trees, surrounded by flowers and plants, a young and friendly staff is happy to serve a delightful candlelight dinner.

Some suggestions: between the starters:

White onions stuffed with beef, mortadella & herbs cooked in Vermentino wine, or  yellowfin line caught tuna tartare with Trevisan radicchio and peas coulisse;

and the hand made pasta dishes:

Traditional thin green squared pasta, served with a rich beef tomato ragù sauce and parmesan cheese, or Paccheri pasta filled with buffalo mozzarella & aubergine, in a guinea fowl ragù;

the main courses
Organic Shorthorn fillet of beef with foie-gras and Cognac served with baby red chard, or a delicious slow cooked rabbit leg stuffed with cabbage, accompanied by sweet and sour shallots, or King prawns & “Tropea” onions flambée with Laphroig whisky;Side dishesDesserts & Puddings;

and to finish, as dessert:

Coffe and Chocolate mousse with amaretto biscuits crumble (great), or a tasty  caramelised apple and pear cake with fiordilatte icecream on custard, a light alternative is the  Sorbet trio Mango, Blueberries, Blueberries, but my favourite one is the lemon tiramisù.

tiramisu-sbagliato-limoni

Friandises and a lemon cream (made by the lemons gathered on the terrace) complete the very accurate service.

The food is good, the location is amazing …. and the price? The price are reasonable: two courses, plus a dessert, water, wine (not an expensive one), and coffee is less the 100 Euro for two persons.

Highly recommended also for Vegan and Celiac, as they serve vegetarian and gluten-free dishes.
