Fried Dishes

Dry and light, our fried fish is served on yellow paper, just like we used to.
It's not easy to get a fried fish well done: you need to know in depth the raw materials and have complete control over temperatures.
As a matter of facts, our fried fish is dipped three times in oil: the first time the frying temperature is reached, the second time cooking is carried out, with the third time you make it crispy! What about lemon? We do not advise it. It would spoil everything!

Tagliatelle romagnole con totanetti novelli e capperi

Tradizione Marinara

Questi piatti sono le nostre radici. La nostra memoria. Arrivano tutti dall’antica sapienza dei pescatori. Sono preparazioni frutto dei ritmi delle stagioni. Nascono tutti sulle barche che ogni giorno approdano davanti alle banchine del Porto Canale di Cesenatico, disegnato da Leonardo da Vinci. Per noi significa non dimenticare la nostra storia.

Menu of the day

We follow the passing of seasons and we only cook what sea and earth give us, always looking for their best form.
And here it is that we glimpse a box of fresh soles or of mantis shrimps. Or maybe of mussels from Cervia or Cesenatico: excellent during summer months, when they reveal their better taste.
All of these are recipes passed over by Marcello Bartolini who, once arrived on his boat after fishing, worked in the kitchen of our beloved B&B Stella Marina!

Desserts, from our Lab

We have always thought that desserts served on a table are the right ending of a voyage of a lunch or a dinner .
They fulfill a difficult task: being the last memory of an experience at the table. All our desserts, crêmes, ice creams, carnival sweets, panettone and torrone are home made in our Laboratory.
It's no secret, indeed, that the whol Bartolini family is very greedy for sweets.
