Fabulous as always

We first came across this restaurant in 2013 and the food was so good we had to go back for our 10th wedding anniversary. As before, the menu did not disappoint.

Even though this restaurant is kind of far from the city center, it's well worth a visit. It's surprisingly cheap, the dishes are delicious (especially the chateaubriand) and the wine selection is really nice. It's a particularly lovely place during summer, since the whole restaurant turns into a terrace overlooking the garden.

I had the opportunity to have dinner in this restaurant and it was pretty good. The place it's not to fancy but the quality of the food was really top 5. We had a wonderful pasta with truffles, and also a entry that was divine. For desert we had a cheese board. The meal was accompained with a delicious italian... More

I am always a bit skeptical about restaurants attached to hotels, particularly ones that are quite a way out of town. My wife and I were staying at the hotel and when we checked in we asked if we needed to book a table. We were told yes but seeing only one other name on the list my skepticism went... More

I have been there several times for lunch or dinner. I always appreciated the high quality of the ingredients and the freshness of raw materials, especially for fish. The restaurant offers also a huge selection of wines. The athmosfere is warm and welcoming. It's perfect for a business lunch or a dinner with friends. Last but not least the big... More

Really high quality food, good range of options and great service. Is important to make reservation when hotel is busy though - opens at 7:30pm so that is a consideration with young children but as ever in Italy they are well catered for food wise.

We stayed in the Savoia Hotel Regency and so this restaurant was the perfect choice of an evening, being located just across from the entrance to the hotel in the same grounds. The tables are arranged in a seating area with a retractable roof, on the front of the restaurant. The fountains in the centre of the grounds in front... More
