A quality criterion for a good restaurant? A menu, which is not too extensive, but which changes with the seasons and uses as many regional ingredients as possible. And there are plenty of restaurants like this in South Tyrol. In spring in the region around Merano light, healthy dishes, such as asparagus or herb delicacies, are offered. Summer allows the South Tyroleans to become rather more southern: late on long, sultry evenings you enjoy Mediterranean pizzas, dishes and salads, accompanied of course by a summery aperitif and a glass of lovely wine.
