Wonderful secluded location with a warm touch.
The dishes looks like small reinassance paintings.
The owner talks a bit too much, but in a nice way.
Ask a tip for the wine, you won't be disappointed.

We were recommended by friends of ours to go here for lunch. We were not at all disappointed. What a beautiful place and how they love to cook and serve all dishes in a special way. It is as if you have lunch or dinner at a friends place. Every time you have ordered the next dish you see the cook go back in the garden to get flowers or herbs to finalize the dish. The way down and off course especially back up is a pretty steep walk but just go for it!

This is the best restaurant in the area, and one of the best I have ever visited. From the appetizers to the desserts, you will not be disappointed. You cannot skip the appetizers and the pasta dishes, all hand made, and decorated with flowers. The setting is also very nice, by a little stream. The host, Dodi, is a real character! The prices are in line with the quality of the food and the area, so cheap by American standards. There are only two negative things I can think of: one, being by a stream, there are mosquitoes (and indoor tables are not an option in the summer); two, most Italian restaurants still allow smoking in the outdoor sections, even if they are sort of enclosed, which bothers me very much. Especially in this type of restaurant, where flavors are so intense, a table of heavy smokers next to yours can ruin your experience. I really wish Italy would change that.

Just outside the city walls, down a very steep drive, in a lovely garden.
We came for lunch and has the antipasto course - a spectacular array of soups, meats, veggies and sweets, most from her garden and garnished with edible flowers from the yard. No need for anything else.
Donatella was wonderful, showing off the garden and explaining the ingredients.
We ate outside under the trees.
After the meal we were offered the use of the folding lawn chairs so we could take our riposo (siesta) in the garden. So sad we could not stay!
Don't miss this.
