Restaurant Antica Locanda Mincio

Overview

At the crossroads of history since the 15th century

The Antica Locanda sul Mincio’s roots go back to the 15th century. The tavern is mentioned as early as 1407 in a contract of sale of the Borghetto fiefdom to the Venetian nobleman Contarini. At the time, it was on the border between the Venetian Republic and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Napoleon passed through here at the head of the Army of Italy when he drove the Austrians across the Mincio at the end of May 1796. In 1848, it was again at the centre of a bitter clash, this time between the Austrians and the Piedmontese led by General De Sonnaz. This is a place that has witnessed a lot of history.

Due to its location in the delightful village of Valeggio sul Mincio, in more recent years the restaurant has become the haunt of many famous actors. Director Luchino Visconti chose this area to shoot the battle scenes for his film Senso.

The tavern is now run by the fourth generation of the family who have owned it since 1919. Immersed in the same romantic atmosphere of yesteryear, amidst frescoed rooms and inlaid wooden furniture, you can enjoy agnolotti – a recipe from the Mantua area.
