Being Italian, we rarely visit Italian restaurants outside Italy: but also being vegetarians in France, these are often useful fallback options if we want a decent meal, which explains why we found ourselves falling hungry and thirsty on a warm May day into this lovely restaurant in the lovely town of Loches. On the prettily decorated terrace we ate a perfectly executed appetizer of bruschetta with tomatoes (so simple, so hard to get just right), with a light salad of grated vegetables topped with sunflower seeds and black sesame seeds (a special touch). But the absolutely unique highlight was the grilled aubergine in a delicious marinade of oil, vinegar and huge Moroccan mint leaves. Lovely! Then fresh homemade pasta with tomatoes and aubergine, also really good, followed by a classic tiramisu. Accompanied by a crisp white wine from Orvieto. Wonderfully friendly family service, with the Calabrian cook coming out to check that everything was ok (and it was!).
