Price/quality is pretty well... read more

We first ate here at lunch because it was late and our first choice was closed! Lucky us. The primis were so simple yet delicious. Fresh pasta (orrechiette) in a divine tomato sauce.

We happened upon this restaurant by chance and enjoyed it so much that we returned for another lunch and 3 evening meals. We ate in the courtyard/garden in the evening, lovely ambience.

Caffe Borghese is a youngish nice evening spot in the middle of the village. The special antipasti is excellent, as well as some of the pizzas, the mixed grill plate is quite ok while some second dishes are pretty regular. Service is friendly, but sometimes forgetful. Price/quality is pretty well in balance.
