Tips on where to eat around the Brugnolo area
In order to respect the peace and quiet of our guests, we have decided not to have a restaurant, but for those who want to try the delicious Reggio Emilia cuisine, there are a large number of restaurants and trattorias near Brugnolo that offer the best of typical cuisine.
One cannot say Emilia without one’s mind quickly running to the table, to the trattorias and recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation for centuries.
Did you know that our wonderful land is also famous as Food Valley: an immense garden of delights, a crossroads where memory, taste and know-how meet.
You’re getting hungry already, aren’t you?
Restaurants and trattorias in the area are spoiled for choice to delight the palate: from simple potato gnocchi, cappelletti, lasagna, grass, potato and pumpkin tortelli and vegetable soups to special first courses such as tagliatelle with hare sauce; among the main courses from pork roast or pig’s trotter with beans to chicken cacciatore or stuffed brisket.
The products of our land, everywhere a symbol of the best made in Italy, are really numerous and all delicious, the most famous of which is definitely the Parmigiano Reggiano, for nine centuries considered the king of cheeses, whose production area includes the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna and Mantua.
Another particularly famous product isTraditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia, the finest, made only from cooked grape must, according to strict production specifications, and aged for years. To water down so much goodness, then, a fresh and light wine could not be missing, able to go well with appetizers, different soups as well as cheeses and meats: the famous Lambrusco Reggiano.
