Nice little restaurant close to the city center and a step away from the castle. The price is in the average. I recommend to try casoncelli and bomba

The quality of the ingredients as the 24 months prosciutto di parma, the lardo d'arnad with honey or the mom's made lasagne al ragu' were delicious. We had also a very tasty risotto scampi zucchini and basil, and an Angus tagliata with rocket. The desserts were so good looking that I did not had time to take any picture before... More

Very good address for a delicious diner. Everything is home made and the traditional recipes are executed with perfection and good taste! Due to his time in France, the colourful owner of the place always keeps some French meal on the menu, which is also nice. In a few words: a place to recommend!!

Our waiter initially looked tired but he really warmed to us as the evening went on. We let him chose the antipasti and the wine. He showed pride in his food knowledge and laughed for my (poor) jokes delivered in my ridiculous Italian. The food was good without any negatives but without any WOW factor either. It was nice to...

Our hosts took us here for lunch. A sparkling wine toast started our meal. No were did not select 4-5 courses, but neither did our Italian acquaintances. Restaurant understands sharing an appetizer or main dish - both to taste different things and because not everyone want to wade through 3 hours and mountains of food. Very genial host and wait...

It is always pleasure to be here in this place. Whatever you are having in this place is special. The main rule if you ask me you should follow the owner of the restaurant. He always suggests you the best things he has in the restaurant. My favorites are the chicken with limone sauce, bean soup and apple pie...
