My husband and I and our two daughters really enjoyed our visits to Cruscioff Pub and to Cruscioff Bar and Gelateria in Sant'Oreste.

Although I only speak a little Italian, the staff were really friendly and helpful. If they didn't understand they found a member of staff who could!

The ice cream at the Bar and Gelateria is very special indeed, especially the tiramisu flavour and is a great way to cool down, whilst watching the local people going about their business or just soaking up the beautiful scenery.

The food at the Pub is absolutely delicious! Well prepared and presented quickly. The pizzas and steak are particularly good. The views from the outside area are stunning and is a wonderful place to sit and watch the sun go down with a cold drink.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in both places and quickly made friends with the staff, who made our visits very special.

We were given a sneak peek at the wonderful Lord of the Rings museum, which will be open to the public in October 2016. It is an extra special edition to the Pub and well worth a visit!

Cruscioff Pub and Cruscioff Bar Gelateria are very special and unique and you can be assured of a very warm welcome.

We will definitely try to return one day...in the meantime we have some wonderful memories!

Thank you to all of the staff!!

Cruscioff Pub has several craft draft beers from Italy and abroad on draft, as well as food. Styled eclectically, with a mix of Irish Pub paraphernalia and Belgian beer prints, I prefer sitting outside at the terrace that overlooks the valley. Definitely a lovely, if not the cheapest, place to while away a hot afternoon.

Cruscioff's is an oddity: styled after Irish pubs, decorated with historic German prints, named after a Soviet ruler, it serves delicious regional italian specialities and beers from all across Europe (including seasonal, small batch and organic). My friends and I love it.

A small dining room, secluded from the main bar area, is the best spot for a happy night out with friends or a cosy dinner, particularly if you're not football- or karaoke- mad.
Try the bruschetta with Lardo di Colonnata: it is rich, creamy and meltingly delicious.
Lots of old standards you'll find in casual restaurants, like fritto misto,olive ascolane, etc., but here they are well-prepared and particularly tasty. Good, properly aged steaks.

The laid-back, wonderfully friendly staff make you feel at home. It's a family-operated place and they seem to care a great deal about their business and their customers.

Sant'Oreste is certainly worth a day trip from Rome (50 km North-West of Rome, along Via Tiberina - or take the A1 motorway for ease). The landscape of the Sabina and the Tiber Valley varies from rolling hills covered in olive groves, to nature reserves -populated with wild boar, porcupines and pheasant- to tiny medieval villages perched on Appennine mountainsides.
If culture, nature and historic architecture aren't enough of a draw, there's the Soratte Outlet Mall at the foot of the mountain.

Then off to Cruscioff's for a good dinner. Although the views from the outdoor tables in summer are beautiful and sweeping, there is something to be said for the cosiness and warmth of the place in winter.
