Here are some examples: the trattoria veneta Al Cervo in Vicenza proposes a menu rich in typical dishes with seasonal and local products for 45 Euro (drinks included). Also Restaurant Volpara, in Mussolente (Vicenza) offers a traditional menu with meet and local ingredients for 50 Euro, and an after-dinner with music and dancing to digest the overindulging meal. Still traditional but even richer is the special menu of Ristorante Ai Castelli in Rovolon (Vicenza) at 67 Euro, which includes also the after-dinner show.
For hard-to-please people, Hotel Villa Michelangelo organizes the “Settecento 2009” New Year's celebration: a one-night travel from past to future that winds along music and food.
