Going out for Sunday lunch is a bit of traditional family thing in Italy and as we like to follow the habits of the locals we're off for a long lunch (and not a negroni) at the Antico Caffé Calissano.
This place has a really beautiful front room which houses the bar and a small dining area - out the back are two larger dining rooms. My little snap really doesn't do the room justice.
We've decided to go the degustation route but with a little addition. Today we saw the first white truffles appear - actually we first noticed a different smell in the city and then we saw them in the shop windows - and there are truffle options available. We've decided to have a little white truffle in our pasta course.
Vitello Tonnato - this has a chunkier tonnato sauce which we both really enjoyed
Fourth Course - here comes the truffles
Tagliatelle burro salvia with white truffles shaved at the table. Simple but oh so sublime.
Ravioli del Plin with roast meat sauce
Brasato al Barolo
