La Commedia della Pentola

Map

This is a fantastic place, quintessence of the emotional landscape of Monferrato. It sits on the top of a hill that takes from San Salvatore to Lu Monferrato, in an area that was once home to the vineyards and is now slowly rediscovering the resource of the hazelnut (here it is the famous Three-lobed Tonda Gentile variety). La Commedia della Polenta is a delightful original restaurant, to enjoy in its beautiful stone wall dining rooms, furnished in a sober and elegant manner (the water glasses for example are all different, like the chairs, in an environment that brings happiness. The dining room and kitchen are the kingdom of Wilma Garlando and her sons Stefano and Mauro, passionate about food, but also about all the territory has to offer (at Golosaria, they organise a cooking show on the stoves). The goal is always to present the best of the surrounding products, from the cheese to the flour, all from Monferrato and all of high quality. The food, which is inspired by the territory, knows how to escape from the rigid canons of tradition, with a healthy dose of creativity in the dishes and an attention to the presentation that is out of the ordinary. The starters (€8) represent the spirit of the restaurant in full with the Fassone beef tartare accompanied by vegetables and the interesting poached hen egg, cardoon, anchovy and crispy Venus rice, the dish that is remembered the most. The first course (€10) options include egg tajarin and rabbit sauce reduced in wine, or again the delightful dried salted cod tortello on creamy rice, but the Monferrato-style agnolotti with three roasts are equally good. The different meats of the main course (€14) are all good and include: steamed cow’s head, seared Fassone beef grilled, slow-cooked Fassone beef stew with Barbera. The excellent desserts are pears in wine served in two ways (Moscato and Barbera) and nougat semifreddo with Valrhona 70%. They also make a semifreddo in the glass with the legendary Toccasana Negro herb liqueur. There is also a tasting menu of the territory at €35. In summer, you can dine by the pool, while for those who want to enjoy the breathtaking view of the hills a little longer, there is the possibility to stay in one of the three comfortable guest rooms and, when the season is right, participate in the truffle “hunt”.
