Rosada dal 1926

Rosada dal 1926

 

Situated next to the Church of San Secondo, the Rosada delicatessen has been a gastronomic benchmark ever since it was opened in 1926 by Alberto, the grandfather of Mauro, the present owner. Today it’s a pleasure for the eyes and the stomach to walk into the shop, which has conserved an olde worlde atmosphere. It serves about 40 dishes every day and stocks about 400 different goods on its shelves.  Specialties include roast ham served with horseradish sauce and guinea fowl stuffed with pistachios, calf’s tongue, minced veal and eggs. There’s also an abundance of fish dishes, such as steamed Adriatic goby, octopus, cacciucco (fish soup), swordfish, cuttlefish, mullet and stockfish. Vegetarian options feature vegetable croquettes and barbaluc, or salsify. Always available in the fresh pasta department are traditional meat-filled agnolotti and potato gnocchi. The selection of oil, vinegar and cheese is also impressive and desserts include sweet Susa focaccia and classic tiramisù. Closed on Sunday and Monday.
