We came here for the first time in summer 2015 and now we finally made it back. Such a great place. The local starter dish is delicious. As is the meat and all the porcini dishes. Honestly, it's worth a detour!!!

Apart from the obvious requirement of really good, local food which has never disappointed, one of the best aspects of this restaurant is the warmth and hospitality you immediately feel upon entering. You are really made to feel welcome. The food is a little different to some of the other local restaurants too which makes a pleasant change if you... More

We were late for lunch. We arrived at 14:15! Our friend who was there before us, spoke to the owner who accepted to keep the restaurant open just for the three of us! It was an incredible experience. Sig. Melchiore, the owner of this beautiful, old fashioned restaurant, dismissed all his staff anegan, converted himself into a cook! An elegant... More

Stopped off on a rainy summer's day to find this real gem. Wonderful food made from traditional ingredients and can throughly recommend the lasagne. Service was brilliant and very friendly, enjoyed in fantastic surroundings.

Antico Mulino is a small family-run establishment, with the proprietor (Melchiorre) carefully overseeing dining room and kitchen. The restaurant has a comfortable and relaxed feeling, with local families and tourists clearly enjoying its pleasant setting for both in-door and out-door dining (this latter a covered terrace on a little square). My wife and I dined here twice during a June... More

We were there for the lunch. The decoration was very cosy and antique. The piano and old iron service plates were completing the sphere. The food was delicious and fresh. Antipasti dish was ceremonial and finished with onion jam and chilli pepper jam. You will love whatever you eat. Besides that the service was just perfect and without single fault.... More

There were only two tables with customers so the service was over the top. Food was ok. European beef just doesn't compare to what we are used to.
