Fabulous. Lunch or Dinner just Go

Arrive early if you haven't booked. This place packs out. Fab fresh food, local delicacies, great wine, good service. Try the house appetiser....definitely share, it's enormous! Tastings of local cheese, meat and salami and vegetables done clever ways. Just do it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here, which consisted of homemade pasta with white truffles, tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms and a lamb stew shared between 3 hungry people. Portions were just nice for us. The pasta was the best we had on our trip so far, and we had just come from Rome, Naples and the Amalfi coast. Angela speaks good... More

Our hotel recommended us to this restaurant. We order antipasti and 4 pasta. The vegetable antipasti was quite ordinary, definitely had better elsewhere. The pasta was good. Service was good. The waiter came over a few times to find out if we are ok. He didn't speak much English but we communicated with sign language ok.

Dropped in to see if a table was available for lunch. Greeted by 3 camerieri. Un tavolo per due? You have reservations? No. And in a very angry tone with a gnarly face he dismissed us. Don't mind being told 'sorry we have no room'. And my bad for not making lunch reservations. But the way we were told was... More

This place is beautifully set in one of the caves. All I can say is the pasta dishes here are amazing! I have never tasted anything like it.

We were there on a busy Saturday evening. The atmosphere was 'agitato' as the staff took care of everyone - which created a fun atmosphere. We shared the cheese antipasti which was more than enough for two and absolutely delicious. We then had the daily special pasta dishes followed by grilled pork skewers. All delicious. Great food and great value.
