£13.00 for a 3 courses lunch

Wasnt quite sure about it until I read this from their site
http://www.redorwhite.biz/
‘who formerly worked with Vito at the Bath Priory and was Head Chef at the Olive Tree’

so we decied to drive 30 mins to give it a try.
You know, Priory and Olive Tree? cant go wrong !
£13 cant go wrong

First step in, wow ! I thought we went into a wrong restaurant – fine dining decorated with relax atmosphere.
As you walk in further, wow ! again was really impress by the selection of wine they have.

The waiter was nice and friendly even we get there at 1.45pm (they close at 2pm, we call them said we were lost in Trowbridge, they kindly wait for us) It wasnt busy as expected there were 2 tables, 10 people in total was enjoying their meal.

We were given a set lunch menu with a variety of choice – ristto, ravioli, fish and beef.
I started with beans salad The balsamic was just right balancing with bean and salad dressing ! My boyfriend soup is not just a tiny bowl but a proper adult portion. Not just the portion right, also the taste ! Ihad ristto as main and he orderd the tagliatelle.
You can tell by the taste of just a little cherry tomato, its fresh and ripe. The fresh basil obviously enhance the whole dish. I dont like the ristto wet normally but this one I dont mind ! even it is a little bet wet, it still taste perfect.

The nougat dessert with good quality cherry end the show perfectly ! Not any cheap forzen dessert you always get from the restaurant but a home made one. Cherry wasnt those any glazed coloured cherry but make a good combination together.

I was also impressed by the tidyness of the washroom. well somehow, they used to work in a high standard venue.

Well done Vito !

If you love food and authentic Italian, Red or White is hte one for you. It worth those 12 miles drive for a lovely meal like this.

What a shame we were drving and havent got a chance to taste any wine.
