Fodor's Review

Heralded as one of Italy's classic gourmet restaurants, Ambasciata (Italian for "embassy") emphasizes elegance and service in tiny Quistello, 20 km (12 miles) southeast of Mantua. Chef Romano Tamani, who is co-owner with his brother Francesco, offers those willing to make the trek (and pay the bill) an ever-changing array of superlative creations. These include dishes such as timballo di lasagne verdi con petto di piccione sauté alla crème de Cassis (green lasagna with breast of pigeon and red currant).
