We had dinner at Villa Crespi on our anniversary.
The chef patron of Villa Crespi is the famous Italian chef Antonio Canavacciuolo who brought his Napolitan tradition to the north.
The hotel-where the restaurant is located was originally built in Moorish style and is situated right by Lake Orta.
Besides the full a la carte menu they had 2 tasting menus. The Carpe Diem menu, 150 Euro and The Italian Journey from South to North menu for 190 Euro. The wine pairings are 70 and 90 Euros.
After the long day journey we have opted for the a la carte selection that night.
After the sommelier’s suggestion we have selected wines by the glass for the starters and pasta dish and we had a bottle of Santa Barbara Verdicchio Stefano Antonucci riserva 2014, it was very smooth and perfectly complemented the main dishes.
We have started with a Piedmont raw meats and a "Tonno Vitellato” raw tuna starters, both plates were perfectly prepared with right balance of flavour and harmony. The saffron flavoured spaghetti with sea urchin and crispy quinoa was perfectly cooked
The two main dishes- Piedmont Veal and Beef’s cheeks and tail with onion and vanilla puree-both were fabulous.
The service was professional and courteous and the atmosphere was pleasant.
Amazing experience well worth the money.
