To reach the organic farm the Rooster will have to climb on the road from Isera brings to Patone and there, on the outskirts of the village on the right bank of the Adige river, you will find on the right the crossroad that takes you straight to your destination. It is a simple construction, but very cosy, with a terrace and wide Windows that offer a unique view on vineyards and underlying Rovereto, that is a small crib when night falls and turns on the lights.
As soon as you cross the threshold of agritur (It's only restaurant, no rooms) the perfume that you will be that of Grandma's kitchen: scented focaccia, of which simmered sauces and meat that bake in the oven, cakes and biscuits. You will be accommodated in a single room, the leitmotif of the Rooster returns nicely in ornaments, candles and other items, furnished with sobriety in a mix of rusticity and some more modern element. Sober even the menu, few things, typical custom but, at the same time, well done. Among the starters, Here's the platter of salami (all delicious, especially the bacon worked personally by the chef) and cheese (of the dairy of Sabbionara plus one, taken by a cheesemaker in the area, It is matured for three years by the Cook), accompanied by small glasses of red onion jam and Flamingo or pickles and various pickles (bear radicchio, stuffed peperonicini, Zucchini and onions, etc). Another proposal to start, the strudel with cheese and pears, not to be missed. A pappa al pomodoro and a saccottino shape of phyllo dough stuffed with Provolone and eggplant were the proposed early day, both delicious. Well even the sausages with tomato sauce, the stupendous baked pork ribs, crunchy outside, light inside, as per manual. And tasty.
Small wine list, definitely implementable, but good selection of house wine, served in bottles that you only pay the amount consumed. And a bonus for sympathy and courtesy goes to owner Barbara, chef MOM, It welcomes you in the room with the elegant simplicity that immediately puts everyone at ease. Don't be surprised if you ask even if the background music you like: If not, the change, because even that is an ingredient not secondary to the pleasantness of a dinner. In last, We come at a price: about 33 euro, water, wine and coffee included.
