This must be our 4th or 5th visit and the welcome we received yet again was like meeting close friends. Once more, wonderfully presented home grown and locally supplied organic produce, a lot of which you can see from the dining terrace growing in their vegetable garden! Each dish beautifully presented and a level of service rare to find. Jaynie... More

Friends highly recommended Rinascimento and booked us in for Sunday lunch as we travelled back to Fiumicino airport. We chose a table on the balcony - and were blown away by the stunning panorama in front of us. We basked, ate and chatted in the afternoon sun, lulled by the tranquility of the setting and the scent of jasmine from... More

We made a return visit to this outstanding restaurant with friends from Nocciano and are delighted to say that it is even better than it was a year ago. Leonardo continues to create sublime food and Jaynie continues to be the perfect hostess. Yet again we left the choice of food to Leonardo and yet again we were treated to... More

The owners are a Canadian lady called Jaynie and an Italian man called Leonardo - A married couple. We ended up spending four hours in the restaurant. At one point we were joined at the table by both Jaynie... More

Owners Leonardo & Jaynie made the experience much more pleasurable with their friendliness and passion for what they were serving. Everything is sourced locally and the views were stunning.

The owners, Leonardo and Janey made us very welcome and the views from the restaurant balcony were wonderful. I recommend the chicken livers and the deer casserole in particular,... More
