Don't go to this place. From the road, it looks like the ideal, non-tourist typical italian osteria. This changes completely when you receive the food (average cuisine, no fresh ingredients) and even more when you receive the bill. They charge both for coperti and "service"...More

My wife and I ate here after visiting Abbazia Sant' Antimo and had a late lunch. There were touring motorcycle riders eating at most of the tables outside so we elected to eat inside. The menu was pretty simple and basic but the antipasta was...More
