Everyone has heard of spaghetti, melanzane alla parmigiana, and lasagne, but have you every heard of pizzocheri?

You’ve probably also heard of Sangiovese, Barbera, Barolo and Pinot Grigio, but have you ever heard of Sforzato or Sassella?

Bordering Switzerland,  the valley of  Valtellina  is known for its skiing, its hot spring spas, its cheeses ( in particular Bitto),  and its wines.

One of the best places to try these typical dishes from Valtellina is “Il Crotasc” in the town of Mese (province of Sondrio, 60km from Lecco).

The restaurant has two dining rooms; a modern dining room and a rustic style dining room. We suggest the rustic style room, it’s much like a mountain cabin decorated with traditional cooking pots and there’s a huge stone fireplace.

The Crotasc is not only an excellent restaurant, but also producer of Valtellina’s best wines Mamete Prevostini. They produce ALBAREDA SFORZATO, CORTE DI CAMA VALTELLINA SUPERIORE, SASSELLA VALTELLINA SUPERIORE, to name a few. All of which have become our favourites and when we can, we go there for some pizzochieri, sciat, and gnocchi. We always try to bring home a few bottles for the Christmas holidays as gifts or to share with friends when they come to visit.

Last time we went Mr. Mamete Prevostini was kind enough to show us around the catina and winery.
