The restaurant, pizzeria, butcher is the brainchild of Luigi and Marco to know and discover the goodness of wild boar meat. In the dining room, cozy, bright room with air-conditioning, and suitable for those who love peace and simplicity, you will be greeted and served by Luigi who will be able to advise you according to your taste and your needs on which dishes to choose from. The food will be cooked by Marco in the big kitchen that ensures the authenticity and freshness of the products. Outside there is a large balcony for those who want to enjoy in the summer, our dining outdoor. The restaurant has a small parking lot.
