Gourmet dishes prepared with a wood stove kitchen to enhance their most authentic flavors and the most beautiful view of the Asolo hills. With these premises, it is difficult not to fall in love with the Trattoria Moderna Due Mori, reopened under the guidance of Chef Stefano De Lorenzi, previously allo Zenzero in Grumolo delle Abbadesse in Vicenza.
Combining tradition with modernity, the Chef chose to equip himself exclusively with a wood-burning stove, therefore cooking with no electricity (which is used just for the lighting) and no gas, relying only on wood to cook his dishes.
The open kitchen, almost like an art installation, welcomes guests at the entrance of the restaurant, surrounded by small tables for the lucky customers who are allowed to enjoy the skill with which Stefano and his brigade move quickly at the stove.
If at the entrance the atmosphere is rustic and cozy, when you enter the more sophisticated main room you are captivated by a huge panoramic window that offers the most beautiful view, from a restaurant, of the Asolo hills. Ask to reserve the table for two by the fireplace to make the most of the landscape.
In the evening, the atmosphere changes and becomes chicer, with the red walls made warmer by the light of the many candles that illuminate the room to perfection. In summer you can also eat outdoor in the beautiful terrace, but remember that reservations are for a maximum of 8 people.
On the menu, bases on organic seasonal ingredients, traditional Venetian recipes alternate with Vicentine specialties, such as the delicious putana made with stale bread, fiolaro (a variety of broccoli) and cheese fondue.
A real treat the delicious homemade bread, boasting the unmistakable aroma given by a wood oven cooking.
The rebirth of the Due Mori is a sign of destiny: Chef Stefano De Lorenzi was by chance in Asolo for the purchase of a Vespa scooter when he was jokingly suggested to reopen the historic restaurant, closed for executive eviction in 2012. From there to falling in love with the Asolo hills and wanting to stay, the step was short.
