Food Experience

Il Grillo

Patrizia and Antonio started it all. She grew up in Piedmont, and he originated from Emilia, both regions with a historical vocation for the culture of food and wine. In an old Lombard farmhouse set in greenery, there has since 1983 been a fine food tradition characterised by tradition, research and evolution. The warm and welcoming dining rooms, heated in winter by the fireplaces, and the large garden, always cool in the hot months under the shade of the centuries-old plane tree, are the settings for an authentic culinary experience.

A few steps down from the kitchen, in the 8th century vaulted space, there is the cellar. Restored to its original form with painstaking recent restoration work, it offers a further environment of authentic charm, overlooked by an intimate table in the adjacent room. The wine list underlines the primary purpose of this enchanting space, offering a broad and carefully selected range of wines bearing the most important Italian and foreign labels.

In this refined country setting, the menu reflects the owners’ constant search for new combinations of the great classics of the northern Italian tradition.

Fresh pasta, typical of the Emilian tradition, and fine meats, and sophisticated Piedmont touches, meet to be revisited and reinterpreted by the imagination and experience of those in the kitchen.

The head of the team is Antonio, a talented chef, while in the dining room Patrizia looks after and pampers arrivals with care and spontaneity, as if they were guests to her own home. An old refreshments house was turned fully into a restaurant in the 1960s. Over the last thirty years, Il Grillo has been the family business of the Sironis and a point of reference both for locals and for those who often come there for a trip out of town.
