In the heart of old Romagna lies Valmarecchia, which was so loved by the poet and screenwriter Tonino Guerra, and it is here that we find Piastrino. Located in an old farmhouse that the owners renovated in 2007, inside Parco Begni in the town of Pennabilli. With chef Riccardo Agostini and his wife Claudia, the sommelier, running the show, you’re in for a meal that is out of the ordinary. The atmosphere is one of authentic simplicity, for a gastronomic experience that is a rediscovery of local roots and history. Though the bonds with local tradition are particularly strong, there’s also a nod to the contemporary. A sharp focus on creativity, whose roots, however, remain firmly planted. Agostini trained for ten years under Maestro Vissani, and ushers in a certain amarcord (local dialect for “nostalgia”) as you discover the food excellence of Emilia-Romagna. He amazes guests with all-new tastes inspired by nature, the vegetable garden, flowers and wild herbs. Such care, passion and dedication have earned Piastrino success and praise, and quite a following of persons willing to make the trek to Pennabilli just to enjoy Agostini’s food. This is not just a good restaurant. It’s one of the region’s best and most innovative.
