Down the hill from the town of Trevi is a little secret called La Cucina San Pietro in San Pettine. San Pettine is a tiny dot on the map with maybe 10 houses, and one of the best restaurants where I have had the pleasure of eating 2 years in a row. The menu is truffles in every from in a tasting menu that is creative, exciting and delicious.
|Basically, this says that they love truffles and want to have you love their truffles|
|First course was a tortellini, made in house with fresh ricotta, and white truffles|
|Second course was a bean soup made with organic legumes, and cooked in the broth of black truffles|
|Third course was a poached egg sitting on sauteed porcini, with black truffles and bacon;;;;;OH MY!|
|Next course, scallion, lamb bacon, black truffle pearls, and balsamic mayonnaise|
