    da Anna: Gnocco fritto & Tigelle

    After the visit of Maranello museum we finally went to have lunch and I finally had the chance to taste the local gnocco fritto and tigelle. Tigellas(photo 1) are small discs consisting of clay taken from underground, which was then mixed with refractory earth and water to make the disc.
    Gnocco fritto, literally fried gnocco(photo 2) is made of fried pastry and it is used to be eaten with ham, salami or seasoned pork shoulder. Instead Tigella is usually opened, then you spread lard, add some parmesan and then close and eat, fabolous!
    We paid about 20€ each without drinking wine.

    Favorite Dish: Tigella and gnocco fritto ofcourse.

    Ristorante Montana

    After a visit to Galleria Ferrari and a wander around town it was time for lunch. We headed to the place where the Ferrari 'people' dine, Ristorante Montana, which is located just on the edge of Maranello, beside the Ferrari test track.

    Ristorante Montana was founded in 1967, and is these days run by three generations of family members which helps to give it a fabulous traditional feel. The walls are covered with Ferrari memorabilia, much of it signed by past and current stars. There is a large print of Michael Schumacher out back in the kitchen cooking with Mama.

    We pre-booked for lunch (via email) and it was the right decision, as the restaurant was filled with local workers and family groups, most of which had reserved in advance.

    Favorite Dish: There was no written menu. The waiter just told us what dishes where available and we chose on the spot. We were given some tasty salami to snack on while we waited for our meal, and ordered a half litre of their house red wine.

    To start, I had the Asparagus Lasagne and Alex had the Balsamic Risotto. The lasagne was delicious, but the risotto was amazing! The balsamic vinegar gave the cheesy risotto a really intense and tasty flavour.

    For main course, I had the Crumbed Veal with peas and potatoes, and Alex had the Veal wrapped in Prosciutto with Pepper & Truffle Sauce. Both were very nice as well.

    We were too full for dessert, but both had an espresso. The bill came to 57 euro.

    Highly recommended!

    Ristorante Cavallino: Dining with a Ferrari theme.

    Ristorante Cavallino

    The location of this restaurant right opposite the main gates of Ferrari gives a clue as to what to expect inside. The restaurant has many items of Ferrari memorabilia hanging from the walls and many photos from throughout the decades. Enzo Ferrari himself used to dine here and his son Dino lived in the flat above.

    The food was a mixed range of Italian and European dishes and the meal we had was very well prepared and presented. However, it is probably not for those with young children or those on a tight budget.

    Cagliari Sisters' Cafe: Have the big salad.

    by glo39 Updated Oct 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I screeched to a halt and made a U-turn when I saw this place.
    I recognized those red jumpsuited guys as being Ferrari factory workers
    and said got to eat here.
    We sat next to three Italian non-Ferrari guys two of whom were wearing Harley Davidson (HD) tee shirts. Unlike HD guys in the US they were eating big salads for lunch.
    God bless these Italian men! They so did not have to prove their masculinity.
    My son was wearing a Moto Guzzi tee shirt. What a switch huh?
    I spoke a bit in my elementary Italian about HD, Moto Guzzi and Ducati with them.
    Two of them were HD guys and were so excited to show off their HD pride and their tattoos of course.

    Favorite Dish: The 'big' salad with tuna.
