average service, noisy banging door and hurried service. Right on a road, which is fine, but the passing (frequent) motorbikes are quite intrusive. Constantly barking dog in house opposite. OK, but wouldn’t return.

Authentic Italian food served with a smile. A delightful, small and cozy restaurant in Lama.....a truly quaint little town.

This is the second time we've been in two years and the quality and quantity are still as good. Place.is full of locals. The food is amazing and the portions are generous, even as first plates. And the prices are also great. We had a Fesa (beef cuts medium rare), Capelle Michelangelo (melted cheese withe truffle and porcini shavings), spaghetti... More

Had the best steak ever here. Cooked perfectly and so tender. Only problem is that there was actually too much food so we took it home in a doggy bag and had steak baguettes for lunch the next day. Restaurant unassuming in appearance but service with a smule and wonderful food.

We usually visit this wonderful restaurant for evening meals and to celebrate special occasions however we were fortunate enough to sample a lunch menu the other day and it was fantastic and extremely economical. The food is superb and always served with a smile.

They had english menus, which really helped us non-locals, but on Saturday night we really got the feeling that people from the villages all... More

We dined here while we were staying at a rental cottage at nearby Casa Capellini. Our host made reservations for us, and a good thing, too, as this was obviously where the locals (including a fairly large group of British expats) ate on a regular basis. The food and service were excellent, though we did have to resort to pantomime... More
