We were super excited to have an Easter meal at a great restaurant specializing in the region's traditional staple of spiedo, which is fire-roasted meat of just about any kind served with polenta.
The Mayor chose the restaurant for us, so we didn't know what to expect. It's called Baita alle Grotte.
We arrived on schedule and inside were a few very large tables seating between 10 or 20 people -- obviously local families dressed up and enjoying a traditional holiday meal. We had the only small table, and the only available one.
It turned out to have been a seven-course meal, with several of the courses including multiple options, and it took us four hours to get through it. Every. Single. Thing. Was absolutely delicious, authentic and amazing.
