We heard of this restaurant a while ago, but it was only with advice from locals that we managed to find it. Even when you get there right up by the Rocca there is no signage. In the evening though the place looks lovely with lights in the trees making it look quite extensive.
We ate outside in the shady garden on a warm September evening. There is an a la carte menu, but most people seemed not to bother with that, but to have the fixed menu. This consisted of something like seven antipasto dishes including delicious polenta with truffles and various crostini with aubergines and porcini. All of these were really very good.
We then moved on to stozzapreti pasta in a simple sauce of fresh tomatoes and finished up with slices of pork with a potato sauce and pink pepper seeds.
After that we didn't have room for dessert!
A carafe of wine and water, as well as coffee was included in the price of €25 each so we thought it was very good value.
Any negatives? Well the service, whilst very pleasant, was a bit mechanical and the dishes came very rapidly so that there was no pause between the antipasto and the primo and between that and the secondo. It would have been nice to have had some time to reflect on what we had just had rather than finding that the next dish was already on the table.
However the food and the setting made for a very enjoyable evening and the lack of signage did not prevent a good number of locals finding their way up there. The inside rooms looked very attractive so we shall return in the autumn.
Open every evening in summer and Friday - Sunday the rest of the year. Best to book.
