I was alone on business, and looking for somewhere nice to dine. Someone suggested this restaurant. It was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food was prepared perfectly, the wait staff was attentive and they paired every dish with the perfect wine. It also was a great value. I truly recommend this place and I... More

We went here for a long lunch and enjoyed several courses and wine. The restaurant and service make you feel at home, but the food is so good that you never once forget that they have high standards for their ingredients and dishes. There are a lot of truffle dishes, and the place smelled of truffles as we walked in.... More

From the very beginning, every bite was delicious. I could have drowned myself in the mushroom soup, which was broth-based, warm, and scrumptious. We also had the pasta with truffles, the venison with pasta (outstanding), and the spinach gnochi. We also had a wonderful local Barbera to compliment the meal. Truly a great experience.

We came in during that awkward time between lunch and dinner and no patrons were in the restaurant. We had excellent service in Slovene and English. The server picked the perfect wine to pair with our meals. My husband had the homemade gnocchi with local mushrooms and I ordered the black risotto with cuttlefish. Both had amazing flavor. We ordered... More

The ambience and food in this restaurant is much more than we expected, after a miserable dinner the night before at Sestina. We were told that this was also a place offering good "local food", and expected to get decent but not all that great fare. Well, the experience was quite the opposite. The service was professional and attentive. Everything... More

I recommend the visit throughout the year, for the restaurant is known for the fresh ingredients. But if you happen to visit it in summer be sure to reserve a table in the inner yard. I also recommend to check the menu, but let the helpful waiters guide you and recommend the specials.

Went to dinner at this restaurant on the recommendation from our hotel. Fabulous! The interior was a wonderful weaving of small intimate dining rooms. The food was outstanding. Our party of 6 shared a number of appetizers and entrees, all of them delicious. We naturally tried the young horse carpaccio and found it tasty. The Monk fish with truffles and... More
