[March, 2011] When I went to Mantova, I looked for a restaurant called Trattoria Due Cavallini which was in a restaurant guidebook.
This was one of those old Italian restaurants with a long history.
A small round middle aged waitress was moving around the tables with alacrity.
I had mixed salami and ham as a starter as usual and then boiled tongue with mostarda.
This mostarda is a food which looks like some fruit preserved in sugar, but in fact tastes spicy and apparently eaten in north Italy.
As for the dessert, I had this 'Sweet Salami' in the photo.
By the way, the speciality in Mantova is sbriciolona, a kind of biscuit, which is very nice, too.
