Your Italy plans are obviously almost finalised and promise an amazing trip.
Knowing how hugely important your restaurant visits are to you, I am torn
between maintaining a discreet silence (and risking disappointment for
you) - or sticking my neck out and then possibly spoiling one part of your
anticipated and actual pleasure.
So I thought I would ask the Ziners for their own special input.
I am also risking offsiding my special Melbourne Ziner friends, so this is
I know people who rate Le Tre Vaselle in Torgiano, Italy, as one of their
experiences in the world. So! I can understand why you have chosen it for an
My own experience was not so happy.
We were seated in what I think must have been the English speaking room,
which in the event turned out to be more like the English shouting room.
Service was haughty and indifferent, the menu .... adequate. The food, a
good version of itself.
This may have been a chance misadventure and the crowd who shared the room
certainly did not enhance the experience, spending most of their time loudly
voicing their views on all things wrong with Italy, and demanding that
windows be opened and closed at personal whim, regardless of effects on
anyone else. Little wonder the staff were not enthused.
A great pity though, as we had booked well in advance and travelled a long
way to get there in time to visit the wine museum and dine on splendid food.
I will look forward to hearing the experiences of other Ziners - both for
this restaurant and for other special treat restaurants in Italy.
Maybe the cautionary notes for Le Tre Vaselle are: Make sure you are in the
main dining room and not in the midst of loudly complaining tourists. Take
time to have a
drink in the lounge before moving to your table. And do visit the wine
museum if that is on your list of interests. It's fascinating.
Best of luck,
