The restaurant is tastefully decorated and done with care an attention. The food is also also prepared and presented with pride, care, and skill. We have eaten there twice in October and December and both meals were well prepared, everything done in house, and excellent. Make sure to see what is special that evening. Service was attentive.

There is nothing not to like about Nilo's restaurant. The food is very good, the service attentive and competent and the ambience pleasant. The main competitor in town, Merlo, is a little classier but both are excellent restaurants and excellent value.

Friendly service and try the house... More

Creative take on classic dishes. A menu where you want to try everything. Nice outdoor setting or inviting indoor room. Professional but friendly service. Good wine lists. A chef/owner Nilo can be proud of what he has created.

It seems a little odd to describe a restaurent in the main square as a great find. However from the outside this restaurent looks very ordinary. It is only when you see the menu you realise the treat in store. The pigeon was superb, the rabbit cooked to perfection. The waiting staff were attentive without being troublesome and Nilo's presence... More

In 2004 we had Christmas lunch at Osteria Vecchia. Despite speaking no Italian, and the staff speaking no English. Us not being able to read the fixed menu or know the prices we had the most memorable Christmas lunch of our lives at a ridiculously low price. Nine years later we are in Tuscany again for Christmas, so we decide... More
