We left around lunchtime and we wanted to stop for a quick bite but most places were closed on the weekend. We thus decided to drive through downtown Voghera and find a restaurant there. A passerby recommended us "Ristorante Ponte Rosso", and that was really a good advice! It is quite a different restaurant. Alongside classic pizzas (really good ones, I must say) they offer an eclectic menu that does not correspond to the regional cuisine, bur rather spans, in the owner's words, from Bolzano to Catania. For instance, my husband had really fresh, raw "alici", mom had a pasta with "asparagi di mare" and I had a pasta with saffron and "fiori di zucchina." This was all topped off by a white tiramisu (that is, without coffee or cacao) sprinkled with Szechuan pepper that the owner specially imports from China.
And did I say that Voghera is the birthplace of Valentino?
