Via Ara, 2
Ca dell'Ara is a friendly, family-run agriturismo (farmhouse with restaurant service) in the heart of Valpolicella, situated in the vineyards right outside the village of Negrar. The owner produces Valpolicella, Amarone and Recioto wine in the cellar underneath the dining room and you can still see grapes drying on traditional wooden racks in the backyard. Dishes include homemade focaccia with salumi, gnocchi di malga (mountain-style gnocchi), fresh pasta with duck sauce, grilled pork sausages and home-baked cakes studded with Amarone raisins. Average price is about 15 euro per person, including wine, and reservations are highly recommended.
