Do you know the moment when you have just taken your seat for the evening in the restaurant and then are greeted so surprisingly warmly that you just know "bull's eye". This is exactly what happens to me when Maria Ventola introduces herself that evening with her pleasant Swabian accent with rolling R 😉 (due to her Italian roots); recommends us the homemade aperitif and then lets us take a look at the menu. We feel completely comfortable and decide, in addition to the 4-course menu, also for a wine accompaniment, which we share and, by the way, is highly recommended. After a fine greeting from the kitchen with pickled salmon, radish and blood sorrel follow two, in my opinion, absolute highlights of chef Stefano Corrado. The probably most tender Pulpo with Peperoni and homemade Focaccia and the Tortelli di vitello with Marsala sauce, refined with fresh marjoram. As I write these lines, I have only one thought - "this screams for a repeat". ❤️
Between courses, Maria keeps telling us little anecdotes from previous months when asked. Last year, just in time for Lockdown 🙈the couple had decided to take over the restaurant Anna near Milchbuck. Of course, not an easy start, but with the support of good colleagues and former supervisor of Stefano, the couple copes with the situation with flying colors. Stefano, by the way, learned and honed his craft at Clouds, Mesa and Gustav before starting his own restaurant. The Anna also offers an event room for larger events, including various seating options outside.
My tip: Pulpo. Pepperoni. Focaccia - Tortelli di vitello. Marsala. Parmiggiano. Marjoram
