The restaurant is full with many local family. The food is fresh and good quality. The service is slow, perhaps because It was in the weekend. Overall it is a good restaurant.

This place was packed when we arrived, which is always a good sign. An Italian friend recommended it to me and we all loved it. It was one of the best meals we had in Italy. The food is amazing and you can go beyond pasta and pizza and try new stuff as donkey meat or river fish. Everything was... More

The restaurant has some charm, especially when the owner starts to play the keyboards and sing, but the food was quite poor

On our family holiday in the village we visited the place for dinner 3 times - and with very good reason! The food is delicious, the athmosphere at the bottom of a 14th century castle and in a 100 years old courtyard is really enchanting, the service is professional and friendly at the same time. I see that there are... More

During over two years living in Italy, this was by far the best place I visited (and I visited many places). This restaurant has been around for over 100 years, and in a village of 600 people, it regularly serves over 1000 people during a weekend. Its no surprise when you visit.The food is about as traditional Italian as you... More
