Restaurants and travels (I)

October 26, 2013

Travels are other of our passions. When we are travelling, we try to find restaurants/bars not specifically created for tourists, where usually goes people from the country. The target are places where you can taste quality food and find reasonable prices. We find them just walking and, many times, thanks to other bloggers that  share this valuable information. So, we hope these places could be helpful when you are travelling!

Casetta di Trastevere (Piazza de Renzi, Roma): In this restaurant, hidden in a square in the middle of Trastevere quartier, you can find traditional pasta, and the main point: quality food and low prices. It has an original decoration following the style of the neighbourhood. We tasted there a delicious octopus (a whole octopus!) and spaghetti Frutti di Mare.  Highly recommended!

Osteria Il Gatto e la Volpe (Via Ghibellina nr. 151/R 50122 Firenze): popular Osteria. Our favourite dish there: the huge pizza Calzone (generously filled with good cheese).  The dishes (home -made pasta and pizza) are generous, pasta is fantastic and reasonable prices. A miracle nowadays!

Ireland! Of course, there you have to taste cakes, cookies, cupcakes,etc. In Argiland Castle (Dublin), placed near to the sea and with nice gardens, you can find a broad offer of traditional cakes, all  of them delicious. And in Galway, fishing village, Nimmo’s restaurant (Spanish Arch, Galway City, Co. Galway Ireland) offer variety of dishes, including  some fish, of course.

Erretegi Joxe Manuel (Sabin Arana Tar, 23 Ondarroa, Bizkaia 48700): placed in Ondarroa, fishing town in Basque Country, next to  Artibai river, there you can eat fresh fish from that river. The speciality there is grilled food (meat or fish). The grill is on the street and you can see how the dishes are prepared. High quality food. We taste fresh hake (merluza) and bass (lubina)  with a bottle of txakolí (typical white wine). Delicious! (traditional Basque cuisine is one of our favourite styles.)

Enzo Bistro (Gutach, in Schwarzwaldbahn, Baden-Württemberg): Placed in a small village in the middle of the Black Forest (Gutach) you can find  this Italian restaurant in the Black Forest Railway. Good pasta dishes by Enzo (chef and restaurant owner) and  friendly attention of the waitress, Charlotte. And drink German beer!

Es befindet sich in einem kleinen Dorf in der Mitte des Schwarzwaldes (Gutach). Dort kann man dieses italienische Restaurant in der Schwarzwaldbahn finden. Gute Pastaspeisen von Enzo und freundliche Aufmerksamkeiten der Kellnerin Charlotte. Und man kann deutsches Bier trinken. [Danke Wilke!]
