Dining on the border between Colli Piacentini and Oltrepo Pavese

Dining on the border between Colli Piacentini and Oltrepo PaveseDining on the border between Colli Piacentini and Oltrepo Pavese is quite a singular experience. Tradition, dialects, even wines mix in an area where the border is simply administrative and the names given to dishes and wines mark the difference. But the style, the way of welcoming and the landscape continue endlessly.

For this reason, with Podere Casale, I have selected and reviewed about 20 trattorie, restaurants and agriturismi on both sides of the border, to give guests the possibility to savor lunch and dinner between Lombardia and Emilia and always feel at home.

Dishes, in most cases, are traditional but every place has its own touch, an extra flavor, a mysterious ingredient that enhances its distinctive trait. The pleasure is in this capacity to break the monotony and create a personal classification of the best tortello or any other recipie.
