WHAT IS A FAMILY RESTAURANT?

The research of our Restaurant never stops! We have been working for 3 years to create something that is not easy to find: quality food for families!

What are we working at?

Our young Chef Giulia Bonarelli, last Summer has demonstrated that having a woman from Tuscany in the kitchen is a good business! But we are Piedmontese! And to us it’s important to make you discover our culinary tradition and our Nebbiolo red wine! Here is why Giulia has spent the Autumn working with Paola Naggi, Chef at the Ristorante Impero, in Sizzano. Paola, best 2018 woman Chef of Chef Awards, helped Giulia creating the Piedmontese menu that you’ll find in our restaurant. Together with the typical mountain dishes and Christmas dishes of course! Paola’s restaurant, that won the Chiocciola Slow Food is right after the exit of the highway, on the way to Mirtillo Rosso; would you like to try it? We reccommend it! Here is the telephone number: +39 0321 820576.

Here are our 6 specialties:

Let’s begin with the desserts! What would it be like a dinner on the mountain, after many outdoor activities, without a selection of desserts? Yes, a selection, because none of us is happy with just one! So thank you confectioner Andrea for delighting us with you masterpieces!

Children lunch and dinner with the entertainers! You just need to make the reservation in advanze. Children stay with friends, chose their dishes from the buffet or from the special kids menu.

Children can chose. If they eat with parents, the kids menu, fast and healthy, is a certainty but what makes the difference is the buffet! It’s more like a game turning around and discover the dishes: there won’t be many other occasions to make them taste different food!

The attention to the intolerances, to the allergies, to the special needs is a quality that only those who have learned to personalize the service can offer. Just like our staff!

Our restaurant has achieved a high level quality in making baby food: mushes, small pasta, meat, fish and vegetables are made by our cooks paying attention to the habbits of the single families: nobody has ever had such a big availability for every single request!

A dinner just for the adults! Dinner is always a difficult moment for parents with little children. Children don’t like to remain seated too long. Here is why the Baby Club is open from 7.30 pm untill 8.30 pm to take care of the little children while parents have dinner! Remember to book the service the day before.

CHRISTMAS EVE DINNER, EVERY MONTH ON THE 24TH!

A glass of wine and tangerines in front of the fireplace. This is the way children in Piedmont welcome Santa Claus before going to bed! Christmas Eve dinner at Mirtillo Rosso, is probably even nicer than Christmas Day! Here is why at Mirtillo Rosso we celebrate every month!

At dinnertime, the whole family gather at the house of the best cook: grandma, aunt, dughter or son to share the joy of celebrating a new start!

Well, at Mirtillo Rosso it’s our Chef who invite you to celebrate! And what is the thing that can’t be missing on a local Piedmont table for Christmas Eve?

Here are the starters:  Veal Tonné, Bagna Caôda with crunchy vegetables, Fassona Tartare

So let start the feast!

WALSER STYLE DINNER!

Did you know that the Walser have been the first inhabitants of the Monte Rosa? But maybe you don’t know that the climate started changing radically, starting from 1200s, when they colonized these high lands! they arrived here in a time period in which the the weather was more temperate than nowadays. In 1600s though a little glaciation started and now we are leaving its ending phase! In the meantime America was discovered and potatoes arrived here too as well as  the corn! So the story of the Walser dishes is also the story of its ingredients and their cooking habits changed. During our Walser style dinner, we give you a better idea of this transition, giving importance to 5 ingredients: rye, milk, trout fish, deer and polenta, made with corn flour!

Here are the main dishes of our Walser menu, and some more will be added by our chef!

THE NEBBIOLO DOCG FROM GHEMME AND GATTINARA

Two are here, in Ghemme and Gattinara. These Nebbioli are considered the most representative wines both in the domestic market and in the international one. “Torraccia del Piantavigna” has contributed to the success producing one thousandths of a great personality and it has obtained the prestigious recognition of the “Tre Bicchieri of Gambero Rosso”.
