The aroma of the truffle vinaigrette greets you before it even meets your table. The tallegio cheese, encompassed by a crunchy outer crust, sits atop a bed of fresh kale, porcini croutons, and bresaola chips. It is the perfect blend of textures and rich flavor that easily make this one of the best salads I have ever enjoyed. The smooth and slightly sweet Chardonnay-Ribolla Gialla is the perfect compliment.
Pair It With: Livio Fellega “Sharis” Chardonnay-Ribolla Gialla
The Spicy Prawns and Fagioli is another dish I would make a special trip back to enjoy again and again. Rich and buttery prawns on a bed of white beans and hot capicollo enhanced with a kick of made-in-house chili oil. It’s a must try.

Also try the classic Tiramisu – vanilla panna cotta between layers of cocoa, pandoro, and whipped mascarpone.
