I had the chance to check out La Frasca in Almenno San Salvatore for dinner last weekend and it was really good! The restaurant is located in the former St.Nicola’s Monastery in the province of Bergamo. Not only is it a restaurant, they also have a winery with around 15 hectares of vineyards.
When I stopped by around 8.30 pm on a Sunday, I was immediately impressed with the ambiance. Since it’s summer, I opted for eating outside under these lovely arches. I liked the atmoshpere, a mixture of history and peacefulness surrounded me. Such a good vibe!
The food menu is quite large, as is the drinks list. The restaurant is well known for its meat on the grill and then for the pizza. The wine list includes a selection of wines from their one winery.
I must say, I ate a lot. I started with a portion of fried potatoes and then I ordered some rips with polenta and mushrooms. I had a Tornago, a red wine, to accompany my spareribs. I liked the full bodied taste of it and the fragrance of mixed fruits.
La Frasca has so many positives going for it. It’s affordable (everything is under€20), flavorful, and a friendly and casual space.
I’m giving La Frasca 4 hearts out of 5!
