We went for lunch during the truffles festival in November. When I called for reservations, there were none, but when we went by on the early side for lunch, we were able to get the last table. Everything that we ordered was absolutely delicious with a carafe of their house red, dessert and coffee. Would highly recommend.

Having been traveling through Italy for 2 weeks we have come to expect that no matter how small or remote a village or hamlet may be, at least 2 or more restaurants there will be nothing less than fabulous. This place in a tiny hilltop town with not a whole lot going on, was yet another gem in an increasing... More

The owner is a sweet delight and her food is different and wonderful. The lamb chops are so flavorful and the chicken and turkey loaf meal is tender and scrumptious.

Wonderful restaurant. We are here twice. The food is terrific. The pasta is homemade. The tagliata was beautiful. The view is amazing when you sit outside.

this is fresh and impressively good food. A family of five we each enjoyed our meals thoroughly. My guinea fowl terrine with truffles and peach and pear salad was just so good. My pudding however reached new heights entirely - ricotta mousse with caramelised peanuts and the most delicately flavoured fine cheese straws... Sublime. This will probably be the most... More

While staying at a villa near San Giovanni d'Asso for a week, we ate here two times for lunch. Both times the service and food were very very good. The restaurant was open when many were closed. The service was efficient and friendly and the restaurant was very clean. We were a party of six women, all ordering something different.... More
