We've stayed here in july 2013, unfortunately only for one night. Since we had a long drive that day, with a lot of traffic in the heat, and our youngest daughter wasn't feeling well, we didn't plan on having a real dinner that evening. But at our arrival around 07.30 pm, we were asked if we wanted to have dinner... More

This guest establishment was a great surprise. The rooms are comfortable, albeit a tad small, no doubt formerly monk's cells. The staff are extremely friendly. On-site free parking. The big treat was the restaurant. Delectable fare are super-reasonable prices, an aperito on the house, impeccable service.

Lovely dining room in old monastery and the food superb, easy drive from Parma. Meal servings are very generous and we liked the local Malvasia sparkling wine.

I stayed here with my family and group of restaurateurs from Canada last year. We all loved it! The only thing better than the food (a culinary oasis in an otherwise sleepy town) & the setting (gorgeous vaulted ceilings) is Letizia who runs the hotel. Simply one of the most endearing and charming people I've ever met. I certainly hope... More

One of our best meals in Italy! The restaurant is family run and you receive a warm welcome. We were jet lagged and did not think we could make it to dinner time so they allowed us to come early. For the pasta course we all passed small plates we we could share, it was WONDERFUL. The setting is in... More
