I have eaten here often and never been disappointed. Top class grilled meat, pizza, pasta dishes and - rare for this area - an excellent range of delicious deserts. Service is professional, friendly and pleasant. Prices are perhaps a little higher than other Agriturismi but quality like this does not come cheap. The decor is not so good but in view of the excellent restaurant itself, I would not dock a point for this peccadillo.

My husband and I stumbled upon this place as we were looking for somewhere to have lunch and since there was a parking lot full of cars we took a chance and were not disappointed. Service was very good, great house wine and no complaints about the food. In fact, we were quite pleased with the food and will put this on our "would return to" list. Everything is made on site including the bread. We each had a different pasta dish and shared and they were both excellent. The assorted grilled meat was great, as were the potatoes and cicoria (a must if you are visiting Italy since we don't have it in the US).

We stayed in Orte for a week and ate here twice. Both times service was much better than in other restaurants visited an waiters also spoke english. I ate the best pizza of my life (la regina) and others were also pleased with what they ordered. The veal I tasted was really good. Really good value for money.

We live nearby so this review is based upon a number of times we were there. The food is excellent (pizza is good but it is not their best). Practically speaking they serve what in the US and other contries call organic food since they grow animals being eaten in house. That's the same for vegetables.... The price is very convenient. To be honest, last year they did not have a fast and efficient service, but now (probably they have learned from the past) the service is good as well. Be prepared to see a lot of people after 08.30pm. I think they do not speak any English but this is not an obstacle in Italy. Since the place can be quickly reached by those who were driving across Highway A1 (Orte) the place is worth being visited by both travellers and tourists. Have: antipasto del gelsomino, fettuccine al tartufo, filetto ai funghi porcini, and cestini con frutta e crema.
