Tenuta Castello, the historic Vercelli-based manufacturers of high quality rice have opened a new type of eatery dedicated to rice.
New eatery, Oryza Riso&Risotto, featuring a quick, young, informal though high quality take on food has just opened in the innovative Porta Nuova- Isola district close to piazza Gae Aulenti. The venue offers a seasonal menu: in fact, each day, customers can choose from among various risotto recipes cooked while you wait, in full respect of tradition and in the shortest time possible. Furthermore, it also offers a selection of tasty dishes including salads made from different types of rice and cereals, as well as mouth watering sweet treats and desserts. Other must-try specialities include typical products from Piedmont like the brand’s charcuterie, select cheeses, artisanal rice-based beers and wines, either by the glass or in bottles. Oryza Riso&Risotto is also a great spot for an appetizing aperitivo or a light dinner, but also a well-balanced breakfast or a healthy snack to satisfy all types of palates. The venue is open Monday through Friday from 11am to 9pm and its products can either be savoured on-site, packaged as a takeaway or delivered to your home. It also sells the best products produced in the province of Vercelli as well as all the other products marketed by Azienda Agricola Tenuta Il Castello in Desana.
