Fodor's Expert Review Il Ridotto

$$$$ Castello Italian Fodor's Choice

Longtime restaurateur Gianni Bonaccorsi (proprietor of the popular Aciugheta nearby) has established an eatery where he can pamper a limited number of lucky patrons with his imaginative cuisine and impeccable taste in wine. Ridotto means “small, private place,” which this very much is, evoking an atmosphere of secrecy and intimacy. The innovative menu changes daily and tends toward lighter but wonderfully tasty versions of classic dishes. The tasting menus—one meat, one fish—where Gianni "surprises" you with a selection of his own design, never fail to satisfy. Ask them to recommend a wine from the excellent cantina.
