Dry and light, our fried fish is served on yellow paper, just like we used to. It's not easy to get a fried fish well done: you need to deeply know raw materials and have a complete control over temperatures. As a matter of fact, our fried fish is dipped three times in oil: the first time the frying temperature is reached, the second time cooking is carried out, with the third time you make it crispy! What about lemon? We do not advise it. It would spoil everything!

These dishes are our roots. Our memory. They are the result of the ancient knowledge of fishermen.. They are prepared according to the passing of seasons. They are born on the boats arriving everyday on the quay of the harbour of Cesenatico, designed by Leonardo da Vinci. For us it means remembering our history.

Menu of the day
We follow the passing of seasons and we only cook what sea and earth give us, always looking for their best form.
And here it is that we glimpse a box of fresh soles or of mantis shrimps at the market place. Or maybe of mussels from Cervia or Cesenatico: excellent during summer months, when they reveal their better taste. All of these are recipes passed over by Marcello Bartolini who, once arrived on his boat after fishing, worked in the kitchen of our beloved b&b Stella Marina!

Desserts, from our Lab
We have always been thinking that desserts served on table are the right ending of a voyage of a lunch or a dinner.
They fulfill a difficult task: being a last memory of an experience at the table. All our desserts, crêmes, ice creams, carnival sweets, panettone or torrone are home made in our Laboratory.
It's no secret, indeed, that the whole Bartolini family is very greedy for sweets!
