What a night, 13 people in the group and no problem for the staff. Set menu of four courses and to say I was sated at the end is an understatement! House wine was superb along with the digestivi at the end! Excellent

First of all, we were lost and when we called, the girl on the phone gave us WRONG directions and much to our dismay, we found ourselves back to square one! Right in the middle of Vitorchiano!!! It seemed as if she had done it on purpose! Called a couple more times, finaly get there, service is slug slow, potatoes are terribly burned, the cicory made us gag...too salty! The tall, dark waitress was obviously "unpleasant"! Not going back, for sure!

We went there for a family lunch with young kids. The Osteria is place in a fantastic place with lots of green around. But whet we didn't like very much is eating in a room with no windows at all. The lights were also very low and I had to work hard to read the menu. When we entered, it was a shock for our eyes after coming such a bright sunshine. Later we got use dot it but I wondered, why they made the restaurant at the half basement ground floor whaler they have such a lot of space.
Anyway, the food is ok but nothing that special. The positions are normal but it is rather expensive.
I also wonder why they didn't put a play area for children. There is a lot os space for that but there is nothing. We had 3 children aged 5-8 and they got a bit bored. In many restaurants in abroad there are drawing kits for children to keep the busy. It is a pity that in this place as many others in Italy, they don't think these kind of things.
Also the menu looked a bit complicated to us although we were many Italians in the family. We haven't seen dessert on the menu and we were didn't care to ask.
If you like to eat in a place without windows and dark, spend a lot then it is the right place.
