Lunch in Laglio for only 11 euros!

All this for only 11 euro - today's menu:

Papardelli with spek and zola
Conchigle sugo nonna
Sedani pancetta e funghi
Risotto melanzane
Stinco vino bianco
Tacchino ai ferri
Insalata verde o mista
Patate al forno
Verdure ai ferri o burro

You can join the local tradesmen and craftsmen for a superb 2 course lunch including 1/4 litre of wine or 1/2 litre of water and coffee for only 11 euro per person. The food is freshly home cooked each day between 12 and 2pm. Go after 12.45 be sure of a table - at 12 o'clock it is jam-packed with workers.

The menu changes each day and usually consist of 3-4 pasta dishes for starters and a choice of 4 main courses, mainly meat and a choice of at least 4 accompaniments - salad, vegetables, potatoes etc. You do not go home hungry, that's for sure. How the workers keep their eyes open in the afternoon after all that food, I have no idea.

Now you will want to know where it is – it looks just like a roadside bar and is located on the main lake road, just at the junction of the lower and upper lake roads where you turn down to the Laglio lakeside.

The name….Bar Trattoria Saggitario – buon appetito!

Remember it is a workers lunch menu, so don't expect anything fancy - just good, wholesome, home-cooked food
