Great food and atmosphere

We were hosted by a local buisness partner at this very good restaurant . We received I think special attention because our host is a regular. A variety of selection for antipasta, pasta,( the mushrooms were special.) all surpassed by incredible deserts....no idea of prices since we were hosted but... read more

English menu different from Italian (we looked at both). Although the waiter was super friendly he did nothing to explain the specialities of the house and left us wallowing around in an overlong menu. Our hotel owner later told us that the great table of antipasto was a sort of buffet that diners can help themselves from and the pasta... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local, and our anticipation was high. The place was lovely with real ambiance. Unfortunately, the staff clearly did not want to serve foreigners and did their utmost to make us feel overlooked and unwelcome. I am sure the food was excellent ( once they bothered to serve us in an almost empty restaurant), but... More

We were staying at the hotel next door, so we decided to eat in their restaurant, and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, as was the service, even though the restaurant was very busy. One of the highlights was the antipasto which was excellent.

The Taverna dello Spuntino is quite a find. The decor of this restaurant, which is laid out on many levels is sumptuous, a real feast for the eyes. We were lucky to call in early on a Saturday evening as the place filled up during the evening with many family groups, including children. We had a mixed antipasto to start,... More

Food served in this restaurant is very nice too! In Italy, portion... More

Discover the hidden tunnels under this centuries old building, now used as a wine cellar. The owner's Mama makes the pasta fresh daily and the suave will linger in your memory for years to come. Must have: the rose liquor!!!

It used to be a very pricey restaurant with good food and vibes. Now it's only pricey. Last experience was awful: although the restaurant was not fully booked we were offered a crappy table. But the most negative trait was that we were so obviously 'pushed' to order the highest priced dishes, and pushed to eat this or that, continuously,... More
