Join us to meet the people that make Osteria del Boccondivino a sure destination in Bra: in the kitchen Andrea, Vladimir and Manuel and in the dining room Lella, Monica and Fulvio.
The name of the restaurant is a paronomasia (a play on words). Boccone or boccon means mouthful in Italian and the word is commonly used in the expression mangiare un boccone, in other words, to get a bite to eat. Divino means divine, of course, but it can also be scanned as di vino, meaning of wine.
So the name could be read as a divine mouthful or a mouthful of wine.
Historically, the osteria was a place where travelers stopped, ate, and slept along their journey (a trattoria, on the other hand, was originally a place where farmers and ranchers sold their wares).
The Osteria del Boccondivino is one of Italy’s most famous osterie. It first opened its doors in 1984 and just a few years later, in 1986, it was where the Slow Food movement was founded by Carlo Petrini. It ultimately became the Slow Food historic headquarters. And today, it remains an icon and an expression of the Slow Food ethos.
