Nearly everything here is cooked over an open fire, and nearly everything here is fabulous. Their grilled scamorza (cheese) is out of this world. The risotto ranges from good to fabulous depending on the day. Rosemary potatoes are must-have dish here, as is their wonderful bruschetta. The ambiance alone is worth coming for, but the food will bring you back... More

This restaurant is just lovely, rustic and offers authentic italian food. The stone walls and open fire create a super atmosphere to enjoy simple food cooked well. I highly recommend the roast lamb cooked on the open fire but all the food served looked great. Service is slow but friendly.

Try antipasto of tartufo: scrambled eggs with tartufo will delight you. Try risotto with porcini as well! I was very impressed by the fact that they grill the meat in front of you on... More
