A 17th century home in the old village of Gussago. It is home to an osteria managed by Stefano Pazzaglia and his wife Resi Martinotti. He is an attentive seeker of small local excellence, and his attention is reflected in the cuisine. The ingredients, such as the “giant” Bergamo sheep from Lake Endine or the fish from Lake Iseo, are the expression of this philosophy. And the dishes often pay homage to tradition: long cooking times, with the boneless pork shoulder and the sweet and sour vegetables. Then the offal or sheep ragù, the autumn skewer and, for “lacustrine” palates, the char fillet with pea cream. The selection of wines and local cheeses is also good.
The 17th century home with the vaulted ceiling avails of two dining rooms and a veranda. Old and new loyal diners sit with pleasure in an osteria which keeps the flag of Franciacorta cuisine and Brescia flying high. At the cooker, the expert Resi Martinotti knows how to handle the fish of Iseo and the giant sheep of Lake Endine, prepare the typical skewer in autumn like the fresh pasta with meat sauce. Discreet wine list and warm and friendly service managed by the excellent owner Stefano Pazzaglia.
