Food fair, atmosphere fair To see everyone else receiving an amuse-bouche, to have it twice brought to within smelling distance, the waiter then looking at us, then taken away was just rude. complacent

A new restaurant in this unspoiled mediaeval hill town. It is run by Deborah, the charming daughter of Daria, owner of Monticchiello's famed La Porta. I hosted a wedding eve dinner there on July 7th - the first big party Deborah had catered. The food, wine, service and ambience were ll outstanding. I can't praise the generosity of spirit which animated the whole event highly enough.
