This restaurant was recommend to us by a nearby winery we toured, Fattoria Le Pupille (something like that, not sure on the spelling). The atmosphere was wonderful.

We had 2 meals here that were very good, great selection of wines. A little bit lacking in charisma when empty but when lots of Italians are dining the place changes.

We have found the restaurant on tripadvisor, and it is all true. We had a good and tasty dinner with a friendly host. Definitely a place to come back to.
