Trattoria alla Cima (TV)
If you want to experience all the charm of the Prosecco hills, a UNESCO heritage site, Trattoria alla Cima offers you the unique opportunity to literally immerse yourself in this wonderful area. How? Having dinner right among the vineyards that give life to the famous bubbly wine in the heart of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG production area.
But let’s take a step back, where the history of this milestone in Venetian gastronomy began. In 1968, after an experience in managing a business in Treviso, Antonio Rebuli returned to his hills and decided to restore an old family farmhouse and created a family restaurant, where he could serve simple meals – bread and cured ham, pasta and beans, omelettes – as well as good wine produced in the family vineyards. The restaurant opened on May 1, 1969, and it became immediately a great success, thanks to a splendid view and the good products coming from the family farm.
In the 2000s Isidoro, Antonio’s son, joined the management of the restaurant, continuing the family tradition devoted to a continuous evolution: he made the antique recipes lighter and more contemporary, introduced new meat cuts for the legendary grill, and add a touch of experience matured in starred restaurants to his brigade.
The wine list is excellent, especially the labels from the Veneto region, and includes the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG produced in the 2 and a half hectares of vineyards in which the restaurant is immersed, giving life to the varieties of brut, extra dry and still.
Where: on top of a hill in Valdobbiadene, the heart of the Prosecco productive area.
When: lunch, dinner, or pre-dinner drinks.
Why: the restaurant is famous all over Italy for its legendary grilled meats such as the beef rib, the filet of foal, and the lamb ribs. The homemade pasta that follows seasonality is also to die for, such as tagliatelle with fresh porcini mushrooms, as well as the traditional recipes that have a story to tell. Like the Merenda del Mazarol (an elf dressed in red, legend of the area) based on a special local cured meat cooked in a pan mixed with ricotta and served with radicchio and apple source.
How: for an unforgettable experience, both romantic and authentic, book a table for the special “dinner among the vineyards”, served right among the picturesque rows surrounded by flowers and lanterns with enchanting attention to detail. By reservation only, you can choose between the “surprise” tasting menu or the à la carte menu. Alternatively, even for an aperitif, book the beautiful panoramic terrace, from which you can enjoy a wonderful view.
