Described in one of our guides, a little cheekily perhaps, as "troglodyte dining". It's a lovely restaurant over several rambling levels the lower parts of which are inside caves. The food here is first class, service was perfect for us (attentive but not fussy) and the pace of the meal was also perfect. The wine list was extensive with a... More

I first saw this restaurant mentioned in CNNTraveller. Was a bit unsure if we can get in, but glad that we managed to :) Decor is great and the place is relaxed and quiet, even when it was packed. Staff was helpful in their recommendation and explanation of the dishes. They served complimentary soup with the bread and we had... More

This was our best meal in a restaurant in Italy, including Rome, Positano, & Cinque Terra. I had the most tender gnocchi stuffed with delicious sausage. I accidentally ordered this and got lucky! This place has a special atmosphere, very historic Italian decor, excellent service, and every meal the 4 of us ordered was wonderful!!!

We came here after reading the recommendations on trip advisor. I'm so glad we did. The restaurant has a tiny door on a small street, but such a lovely welcome inside - we were greeted by the chef, who I'd e mailed regarding our table booking, and instantly made to feel very welcome. Our hotel had phoned earlier in the... More

This probably would have been better without 3 children in tow but the staff were very child friendly and although the kids thought it smelled funny (which it did, we were in a cave and it smelled like it!), they enjoyed the food but more importantly making shadow puppets on the walls by our table. The food was really good,... More

The food is well prepared and presented without being pretentious. When booking make sure you do not get a table on the lowest floor as this is a cellar which is cold and a bit damp.

Went here on a recommendation from the hotel. The starters were excellent. The mains were not. The truffle steak had not been left to rest for long enough. The lamb was too small. Desert was good. The wine selection has excellent.

The restaurant don't look impressive from outside, but is actually made in the rock and goes down inside with several levels. Nice authentic look and feel. Waiter was good and we got 3 courses, wine and coffee. Absolutely good food that was presented very well on the plates and looked good. The taste was ekstraordinary and the raw ingredients was...

My husband and I decided to visit based on the excellent recommendations on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! We were very impressed with the wine list for the local region. Our food was delicious and service was excellent, we would highly recommend this restaurant to all!
