Residenza del Lago
Residenza del Lago, we were recommended this restaurant while recently visiting the Cieck winery in Canavese. Our lunch was excellent!
It doesn't look like much from the street, but as you enter you walk into paradise through a lovely flower garden that takes you to the restaurant and hotel.
Frederico, the owner, greeted us and showed us to our table. He is a sommelier and very passionate about food and wine. This was confirmed by the over 400 bottle, well chosen, fair priced, winelist.
We started with a gift from the chef of little crostini topped with a tuna patè, followed by 3 types of delicious homemade bread; nut, sun-dried tomato and olive.
We chose the smaller tasting menu of Tajarin con Coniglio e Sugo di Pepperoni Pasta with a Red Bell Pepper and Rabbit sauce followed by Cosciotto di Maile con Senape e Miele con Spinaci e Patate al Forno Ham with a Mustard and Honey sauce with Braised Spinach and Roasted Potatoes.
Don't forget to save room for their desserts!
Everything we tasted was fresh, seasonal and made in house.
Just a half hour north of Torino in the Canavese wine region, this is a perfect place for a few quiet, relaxing days near Lago di Candia Lake Candia, which is a few minutes drive from the hotel.
The rooms are beautiful with arched red brick ceilings, nicely restored while keeping the style and feeling of an ancient Canavese farm house.
