El Piron: Mom and Pop Trattoria near famous bridge
One hundred steps around the corner from the famous wooden bridge will get you some very fine local food, prepared daily for the local customers. We ate there in the afternoon and enjoyed to home made pasta. The waiter is polite and helpful and the place is kept clean. I was surprised by the white wine ( house wine) as it was more than excellent.
So make a break from the tourist street and just go around the corner to El Piron. Enjoy.
I am always trying to make a break from the places that are frequented by tourists. This is one of those "finds".
Favorite Dish: I had bigoli with sarde....sardines, olive oil and home made pasta, the thick kind.
I saw some locals having baccala (the cold kind made in summer) with polenta. Looked good to me.

Trattoria El Piron: Great local food
Going back to the parking lot after out visit to the famous bridge and some shopping we saw this trattoria and, after a look to the exposed menu we decided it was time for lunch!!
The dining room is very nice, two level with warm wood floor and a few tables, walls are nicely decorated with famous paiting reproductions and they have air conditining, nice after a morning of strolling and sightseeing under a hot sun.
The menu is simple, four five choices each course but everything is made out of a long tradition of local cuisine and selected according with the season. Try their Baccalà alla vicentina with polenta, it is dried salted cod cooked with oil, will melt in yout mouth!! also baccalà mantecato is great, served cold it is perfect spreaded on a piece of bread.
Appetizer cost aprox 6-7 euros, pasta 7 euros and meat and fish 7 to 14 euros each.
Favorite Dish: We had two pasta dishes, homemade bigoli with sardine sause and fettuccine with perch and fresh cherry tomatoes. The portion was good and the food perfect. We also tried their homemade cake, lemon tarte and warm apple pie with cream, delicious!!
We ordered the white house wine, expecting a average wine but it was instead wonderful, actually the best house wine ever.
