interesting, tasty modern italian food, large garden

we ate in the large, relaxed garden - waiters were very helpful in explaining how the menu worked and making suggestions for us. Excellent food, tasty, fresh and unusual - definitely modern slant and nicely presented. Orzo salad and tomato/salmon mechoui starters, pulpo ravioli, gnocci, lemon... read more

First and foremost to avoid any misunderstanding, this place is primarily not a restaurant, this is a wine cellar. You can come here, taste the local wine and eat at the same time. On that basis, this place is great. The location next to the cathedral is easy to find and away from the crowd (gathering in st Anselmo street).... More

We stumbled upon this little gem whilst wandering from Roman bit to Roman bob, and it was a great find! Would recommend it for the outdoor dining area alone.

When traveling in Italy, one can get tired of finding the same dishes everywhere, but this restaurant is more original ,by playing with tradition. We enjoyed excellent local ham, and a dish of crispy chicken in polenta ,filled with creamy and tasty sauce. A very pleasant surprise.

During our nine nights stay in Aosta we visited Ad Forum two or three times. Last summer we had lunch there on a short stop and so we knew it is good and were hapily returning again. It has a nice mix of locals and tourists, families and young people hanging out in the garden, either for a coffee, a... More

This was recommended to us by a local and we were so pleased. From the moment we walked in, we were looked after very well by a number of staff. The restaurant has a great vibe with a number of dining areas including the small dining area inside we chose on a cold night. We were very pleasantly surprised to... More

We were charmed into the lovely looking courtyard of this restaurant, but that was where our enjoyment ended. After 40 minutes we still hadn't gotten our starters, and it took two visits to the cashier to finally get them. When they arrived they were small and tasteless. The mains took another half an hour, also small and unsatisfying. The prices... More

We just saw this restaurant near the Christmas Market, after we had tried a recommanded one which was full. It's very cosy and the personal very kind and helpful. The situation is perfect, just outside the cathedral. Nothing to complain about the service. The food was not extraordinary. The fish (trout) was ok, bot the meat was rather "hart" and... More

There are plenty restaurants in Aosta but this reataurant Ad Forum is one of a kind. Set up near the Romain archaeological site and in a stylish lush garden. Varied carte de menu with special Italian dishes. The wine list is exceptional, local variety up to the best Toscany wines. You can also buy a great selection of wines by... More
