The Memory of Good Flavors of the Past
For catering we are open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for dinner (20.30) and on Sundays and holidays for lunch (12.30).
For a group of at least 10 people we also open the other days always by reservation.
Our fixed menu, 30.00 excluding drinks, is composed of:
Appetizers (our salami, savory pies, omelettes, homemade pickles from our garden, etc.), two first courses (one of pasta and one of rice), one second course of meat with side dish, two desserts (homemade cakes).
From the Ratta farmhouse (Cassina Rata with the dialectal word rata, steep and woody hill), traces have been found since the 16th century (about 1571), when it was inhabited by a 'family' (in the patriarchal sense) composed of 9 'souls'.
The farmhouse is located in the center of the Curone Valley Regional Park of Montevecchia and Valle del Curone) framed by a splendid hilly landscape, on the 'road' that long ago, most likely, connected Perego to the Merate plain.
For these paths have crossed the various populations that have inhabited the valley and its surroundings, from the Celts to the Lombards, from the Ligurians to the Romans, leaving traces of toponyms and traditions.
