La Scaletta - a Restaurant Institution in Ligurian Lunigiana
|Trattoria La Scaletta Sarzana, Liguria.|
After you choose a seat, a waitress will greet you, and possibly the people at the next table will nod hello. Pretty soon, you’re asked what you want to drink, and the waitress tells you which primi piatti are offered that day. On our recent visit, there were four: spaghetti ai frutti di mare (seafood); tagliatelle with pesto; tagliatelle with ragu; pappardelle with sugo di lepre. It isn’t particularly important what you choose, they will all be good.
|Spaghetti ai frutti di mare. Generous seafood with deep flavor.|
|Fresh, fruity vino della casa.|
|Pappardelle with sugo di lepre (sauce with hare).|
When the menu is presented verbally, you never know how much things cost. Our Italian friend from Bologna says that it’s sort of a tacit arrangement: you don’t have to ask, they won’t cheat you. In this case, you can take that to the bank – our lunch for two consisting of two primi, two secondi, two coperti, water and a ½ liter of tasty house wine cost just 28 Euro.
