Silenced By The Trout
“If I am a river, you are the ocean
Got the radio on, got the wheels in motion
We were silenced by the night
But you and I we gonna rise again
Divided from the light
I wanna love the way we used to when”
Nope! This is not a post about love. However, I could not find a better way to star this post without citing the song Silenced by the night from my favorite band – Keane -. Not just because we always play their music while we are driving, but because we were also heading to a river with the stereo on (with Keane’s Strangeland of course!) and our wheels were in motion to Rivodutri, where you can find a marvelous restaurant specializing in fish river called La Trota (the Trout).
La Trota, located about 136 km Northeast of Rome, has become a point of reference for many gourmands living in the Lazio region, as well as in Italy.
Being voted as the best place specializing in river fish (by renowned gastronomic critics) in Italy and with excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, la Trota is a family owned restaurant wisely run by the Serva brothers – Maurizio (who is in charge of the dining area), and Sandro (who is the Executive Chef).
The key to their success is simple – a passion for their territory produce because – above all – food is culture – and this is what makes this place so special. Moreover, the courage to open a haute cuisine spot in a 100 people village about 85 miles from Rome, is a living proof of how serious and attached they are to their roots. In our case, the 85 mile trip was worthwhile.
While tasting the different entrées, we wouldn’t say a word due to our concentration in eating all the delicious food–Shhhh!….
We were “Silenced by The Trout”….
