We were here for a birthday dinner party. They made us a fabulous cake! Our service (7:30 pm) was excellent. We all ate from the "Zero km" menu - including hens that grow only in these woods. All food on this menu is local farm-to-table. Our intention was to experience true local cuisine, while on a vacation in Venice (not... More

We were invited for a business dinner at this location. They reserved for us a large table on the outside area. There were some storms around the are, which arrived at the middle of our dinner. The restaurant personnel activated a system for closing the ceiling with some canvas and our table remained dry through the evening, but customer in... More

I was there during a celebration. They accepted a reservation for a large group of people at 21.30, sin the kitchen closes off at 22.30 and serving an appetizer menu, first, second, dessert and coffee for an hour is a utopia. In fact as far as the food was good quality and well prepared, the service proved to be too... More

The Trattoria traces back guests to 1609 when Galileo Galilee stayed here, followed by other famous guests. Italian menu with English speaking service. Selection of home made antipasti, good risotto and perfect Tagliate. No space for dessert, maybe next time. Limited, but correct vine selection including my favorite vines from the South. Should come back...

I found this place very old fashioned, as I love, and very elegant. They serve for sure quality food, so if you are visiting the zone this is a restaurant you should try! The garden in spring is particularly.. Lovely!

This is a very old - but locally well known - trattoria. Beautifully elegant. I had the Kilometre 0 lunch menu - which meant everything was very locally sourced. Delicious appetizer with duck breast prosciutto, than an incredible lasagna, followed by duck cooked in wine. Yes I was full!! Great service.

I think a lot has already been said about this place so will keep it relatively short and simple. We loved the services, our waitress was impeccable, knowledgeable and efficient. The location was fabulous under a 200 year old tree, with a retractable roof which was very important given how hot it was. The food was simple, flavoursome, well cooked... More

The food and the people are very kind and professional. You can park your car in the garden without problem. To arrive there you'll need a navigator. The way to arrive there it's not so long from the center approximately 15-20 min. and you have to cross a piece of Land.

This Trattoria was recommended by our B&B host and we were not disappointed. Our first visit was a late lunch on their covered patio. The service was very good and the food was also. Our next visit was for dinner and we arrived without reservations during a wedding reception which was taking place at the restaurant. The staff were warm... More
