So located bit far from everywhere this place was the reason we've spent the night at Quinto Vicentino. Wooden interior, pretty large patio outside. 15 taps, all Italian. I'd say about 100 bottles with some interesting Italian micros and good selection of lambics. Style and quality wise the taplist could have been more interesting, just one dark beer (Irish stout). Very professional service they knew their beers, at least one of the guys did. Food was very good, we had burgers which were quite good. So it's a very nice place, I'd love to visit it again. Is it one of the 10 best places in the world? In my opinion not, but that might change if I visit again.
The Ambiance is quite nice although it's almost typically english-style with fake vintage wooden booths all around you. The Selection of beers on tap is large and made up only with craft local beers and belgian masterpieces. Sometimes, as for instance last evening, you can find some mistakes in the tap list (like a smoked beer confused with a rauchbeer). The price is fair. When you visit the pub outside the weekend, you can find exceptionally incompetent waiters, like they don't even know the price of some of their bottles: I wanted to try a gueuze by Lambiek Fabriek Brett-Elle, a new lambic brewery, the head waiter didn't want to sell it to me 'cause he didn't know the price and was kind of surprised by the name of the brewery as well (and i saw many bottles in the fridge) Literally no words. This is definitely bad: the overall rating is deeply affected by that. The service is again awful (this is true only outside the weekends: i tried this place several times in the weekends and the service was way better): I ordered a 2015 Vintage Cantillon Gueuze (75 cl), which turned out to be botlled in 2016, and the same head waiter poured some beer on the floor without even apologizing, which is really bothering because i was paying for that beer. Moreover, another waiter wasn't able to pronounce "Cantillon". He pronounced that like it was an italian word. What the hell man, you are one of the locations of the Zwanze Day, you have Cantillon posters everywhere and one of your waiter cannot pronounce "Cantillon" correctly? Are you kidding me?
What a pleasant surprise. My GPS actually found this place, and I could see my B&B room at Agriturismo Sartori from the bar. They have a large covered patio, and inside is an L-shaped bar and three rooms plus of restaurant tables. They taplist of 24 included four beer-in-a-box lambics, one of them Italian, a draft kriekenlambik, and two experimental wine beer blends, and even a couple of Italian beers on cask. Cantillon gueuze and Rose de Gambrinus were on tap, as well as over a dozen Italian beers. There is no bottle list per say, but you can peruse the coolers and pick out bottles of lambic or Italian things. The crowd started with just a handful of American families from nearby bases and grew steadily throughout the night until it was completely full, everyone having an obviously good time. Staff - Nicola, Titi (Titziana) and Yasmina - kept pace, and knew the beers thoroughly. Barmen frequently give small samples to try, but these guys gave me full pours, holy cow. To top it off, the burgers and bruschetta were amazing. Sadly I had just missed their annual beer festival in early March. But it’s on the list for next time. No wifi, though, so I couldn’t look up any of the beers, but this is certainly not a place for live rating, just for enjoying.
Ths place is AMAZING. It isn’t near anything, so you need to plan your trip a bit to visit this one. We stayed at a very nice hotel 3km down the road and had an amazing night. Staff is so friendly and open. They love beers, they love good food and they love people. We sat on the patio, but the service was very quick and prompt. Amzing draught AND bottle list. Burgers are great. Overall, to me, together with 4:20 in Roma and Lambiczoon in Milano, this place is not to be missed when in Italy. Would go back in a heartbeat!
