The Best Italian Restaurant in Valencia
There is an ancient tradition in Italy: the old eating houses called “trattoria”. A cult sites for provident voyagers that are looking for refuge and the family heat typical of these small restaurants. We are inspired at Lambrusqueria to these little hash houses that offer great masterpieces of freshness and simplicity for a small price.
Behind every “trattoria” there is the figure of the host. A figure never overpowering and very descreet. A man every time ready to start a pleasant conversation and to discuss the public virtue of every rich wine.
