OUR EXPERIENCE IN BRUNO’S TAVERN, WHERE FUN IS ECO-FRIENDLY
The welcome was “Cossa voé bee tosioe?” in Venetian dialect, which means “What would you like, beautiful girls?” From then on, you understand that the atmosphere is rustic… You take a look at the menu “mezzo secio de vin” (half liter wine), “poenta” (cornmeal mush), “salamella” (sausage) etc., you look around and you see the glasses of terracotta, the large tables with wooden benches and you understand that the atmosphere is similar to a typical Venetian countryside festival. We ordered traditional dishes, cornmeal mush and grilled cheese, mushrooms and sausages, half liter wine served in a jug of terracotta. We took our savory trays and we enjoyed these delicacies in the shade of the poplars.
After lunch, despite the feeling of fullness in the stomach, we were attracted by the luna park located nearby. This is a special amusement park because it’s composed of attractions completely operated by hand, without the use of electric energy… We began to try an attraction after the other… From the three lanes slide to the vitruvian man, from Tarzan to the trampoline… Fortunately, we discovered not to be the only adults to enjoy it so much!
Who came up with this idea? It’s all thanks to the owner Bruno Ferrin, born in 1937, that still in the seventies had to create alone, because the blacksmith of the village refused to help him, some swings to entertain his youngest guests. From then on, he developed a passion for the construction of carousels in iron and now the attractions are almost forty.
Nowadays, at “Osteria ai Pioppi”, food and fun have become a perfect combination! A paradise for children, a curious place for adults, where it’s possible to taste great food and wine immersed in the nature, with the opportunity to do something different after luch. Of course, we stayed here more than expected!
Useful tip: taste “Caffè ai Pioppi” made with a secret recipe! The entrance to the luna park is free for guests of the tavern. Prices are between 1€ and 8€. Osteria ai Pioppi is located in Via VIII Armata 76, Nervesa della Battaglia (TV). Big parking available for free. More info click here.
