La Rosta (TV) — Veneto Secrets

Inside an ancient mill in Quinto di Treviso, one of the most suggestive areas of the Sile park, La Rosta is a restaurant and American bar with an extraordinary panoramic terrace embraced by the placid waters of the river.

In Quinto di Treviso, along the “via dei Mulini” (way of mills) La Rosta is a traditional restaurant that reopened in March 2023 with the aim of restoring a place with a long and fascinating history to the small town.

The project was strongly desired by the Zago family who, patrons of the arts and creators of numerous hospitality projects in Veneto, decided to give new life to the ancient mill, once known as Mulino Favero, and transform it into a fish restaurant “on the Sile river”, just to enhance the exceptional context in which it is located.

The history of the place is linked to the history of Venice, when the grain processed in the mills along the Sile river was traded throughout the Mediterranean. From the terrace on the river you can enjoy an extraordinary beauty.

The restoration of the mill was followed directly by Valentina Zago, also the soul of Charta in Silea, supported by the visual Vania De Vidi. The recovery intervention aimed at enhancing the pre-existing elements, from the windows to the Venetian terrazzo floor, up to the historic beams for which ad hoc lighting was designed.

The wooden boiserie, recalling the gray-purple tones of the floor, accompanies the VeniceGreen botanical installations that open onto the fabulous terrace overlooking the river, offering the magical experience of eating right by the water.

The kitchen is the realm of the Executive Chef Nicola Cavallin, already the creator of several gourmet projects, which transforms the best fish into original recipes such as tuna carpaccio with Sauris guanciale and Habanero avocado, black fish ravioli with bruscandoli and casatella cream, grilled eel with artichokes and agretti or catalana lobster.
Just fabulous the fragrant bread baked fresh every day by the chef, prepared with flour from the nearby mill that is still active, to be accompanied by a delicious butter from the alpine pastures.

Wide and well-curated, the wine list includes the excellent wines produced in the family wineries, the Zago-Gasparini in Collalto di Susegana and the Lagertal in Trentino.

The terrace also offers a bar area, the realm of the bartender Andrea Brunello, with experiences at the Hotel Bauer in Venice and at the Relilax in Montegrotto, who will be able to advise you on the perfect aperitif based on his signature cocktails to sip at sunset, letting yourself be lulled by the song of the water and nature.

The Secret

Among the legends that surround these places, there is one in particular about the “anguane” of the Sile river: beautiful creatures that look like mermaids, it is said that they populated the waters of the resurgence river to protect it and keep its waters clean.
