La Ciucciarella

Along the road that takes you from Manso to Galéria, there’s a discreet bistro called La Ciucciarella (“little girl” in Corsican), with tables under the shade of two enormous mulberry trees. It’s the perfect spot to nibble on something like greasy zucchini beignets, charcuterie from independent producers, a beautiful suckling lamb from Antoine Massoni, served roasted with fat homemade fries, a local-style “kebab” (shaved goat meat, red cabbage, organic tomato, red onions and a yogurt-mint sauce in a somewhat tough pizza dough), or even a whole grilled pigeon with fregola sarda and fennel. Before a sweet nectarine pavlova or an erotic white chocolate ganache. One piece of advice? Avoid the pizzas, they’re nothing special. // G.LeP.

FEELING THIRSTY? Local Pietra beer (€4 for 250 ml), and a dozen well-chosen wines: Domaine de la Figarella red, white and rosé (€3 a glass), a red blend from the Domaine Abbatucci (€42 a bottle), etc.

PRICE: À la carte €22-52.
