Spectacular menu. I had an excellent rice with rabbit and snails and apistachio ice cream with amaretto which was very good, and great value. I recommend it for both a business lunch or to impress your partner.
In the Easter holidays I went to a restaurant that ended up being one of the best places I have eaten. It is the Di Trevi Restaurant, located in the heart of Villena (where you can also visit the fantastic castle). As its name suggests, it is an Italian restaurant. We decided to have the set menu, which was a complete success, both for the price and, above all, the quality of the dishes. First, we enjoyed 4 appetizers: ham and cheese, squid with garlic, stew (including potatoes with bacon, fried egg, pepper) and sautéed mushrooms and garlic. Following this, we had several seconds to choose from. I opted for pork tenderloin (which is what you see in the picture). There were two pork medallions on a bed of bread and goat cheese with chutney on top, accompanied by potatoes, vegetables and onion. Terrific. Finally, for dessert I tried the coffee flan. A drink and coffee were also included in the menu. So, if you pass by Villena, I recommend stopping at this restaurant.
