Had the pleasure of being invited to this quaint little hidden gem by Andrea Briccarello of Bisol Prosecco. There were 12 of us in total and we seemed to take over the place as the little restaurant is small and cosy. The masterpiece of the place was the fire in the centre of the room. WAIT A MINUTE STOP PRESS! This is where the cooking of your food takes place???? Unbelievable. The team of 3 staff and the theatre that goes into the foodie journey we had was simply magnificent. We could have asked for a menu and chosen what we knew or we leave ourselves in the capable hands of the owner / chef / guru. Steaks from all over the wold cooked with different salts dependent on the texture and maturity of the meat. Grilled to perfection on an open wood fire and the accompaniments were also to die for....young radicchio root chargrilled was sublime! The venue itself very quaint and humble and it seemed you were able to shop for wine whilst you dined! We spent almost 4 hours in here and the atmosphere was electric and tables who were joining late had envy eyes all over the place! A magical experience and one which I will remember for many years to come! SUBLIME!

Came here for lunch after a wine tasting. The selection of wines were fantastic and fairly priced. The porterhouse steaks which we had one from the local area and one from near Rome were amazing. The pasta was tasty and the olive oil at the trouble was delicious. It’s not a cheap lunch but for the quality of food you get it’s well worth it. Vegetables and potatoes are served with the steak.

We discovered luckily this trattoria on our way to Vicenza. Located in this’ll Prosecco village. It’s mainly a place for great meat. The chef cooks by the fireplace the beef or your choice, and I never encountered such a choice : 12 different type of cows from Europe, UK, US, Japan, Argentina, and many appropriate cuts. No menu, you order from the chef’s explanations. Meat is cooked to perfection, served with radicchio grilled by the fireplace too, and several other veggies. Price are very reasonable for the quality.

Our experience from beginning to end was disappointing. We were largely ignored and went without wine or water for 20 minutes after being seated. Our menu was in Italian so we read and understood very little. Our server didn't help much. Just said "you should eat this one". So we went with his recommendation. Red flags we should have left but we stayed. Server never asked how we wanted the steak cooked and when I ordered Prosecco he never asked if I wanted brut, dry or extra dry. Again, more red flags of a poor choice. The steak arrived and was very tough. Probably the worst bistecca we have had in Italy. Other tables of Italians were treated very differently than us. They were brought their cuts of steak to examine before being grilled. We were not. Others that ordered Prosecco were offered a choice. We were not. My wine glass sat empty before my meal arrived with no offer of more wine. Our Airbnb host spoke very highly of Giancarlo and his restaurant but very disappointing all around. I recommend dining else where.

A meat eater's paradise. The four of us shared the largest T-bone we had ever seen (1.5 kg), which was simply cooked over a fireplace grill with lashings of special salt. Also came with roast spuds and a smattering of grilled veggies.

To our great surprise, we scarfed the whole thing, despite some light meat sweats towards the end. The meal is a great production, as the meat is cooked right in the dining room and there is always much exclaiming when the beast arrives à table. The charming young Italian woman at the table next to us crossed herself when presented with her steak! It was delicious, as were the starters (pheasant tartare for some and a few little gnocchi, I think, for the others). The house red was yummy, but there is a serious cellar as well.

I would recommend this place for the atmosphere and the high quality meat, but it was the most expensive dinner we had in the region by a ways (about 4 - 5 Euros per 100 grams of beef). There're also other meat choices like lamb, veal, and pork chops, but it's clear that the regulars' choice is the beef).
