Good straightforward local food with friendly service

Excellent truffle pasta, good pizzas and starters. Friendly service. Had to book an hour in advance to get table for 6 on a Saturday lunch in August. Recommended. Beautiful town also, with relatively few tourists. Well worth a detour!

Out and about on a hot August lunchtime and chose this restaurant on a whim because it had a notice saying all the pasta was made by hand! And it was! Great pasta with fantastic cinghale sauce, and freshest melon, tomatoes and some of the best buffalo mozzeralla tasted yet! Good value, friendly staff and homemade desserts as well. What's... More

Went for lunch with family. Pizza for three of us which went down a treat! Very big (could definitely fill two) and very reasonable pricing - quite cheap really. Gnocchi for one which he said was great and very filling! Fish for one too which she enjoyed a lot! All in all lovely staff, efficient service, big portions and fair... More

This restaurant had local delicacies as cinghale and pici with truffel. It also serves good ragu for kids and some nice wines. The terrace is lovely in this medieval Italian town, even though the afternoon traffic races up the narrow street.

Pizza is the highlight, but pasta was also enjoyable. Staff are very friendly + speak good English. You can eat outside which is great + there is shade from the sun. Limencello offered with the bill was a nice

Yes, it is the most perfect pizza ever to be made, eaten, and enjoyed. The salads were fresh and delicious. The grilled vegetables were fantastic, and the other entrees that our friends had were lovely. However, truth be told, it all paled in comparison to the pizzas. Every bite more delectable than the next, absolutely NO law of diminishing return,... More

By coincidence we ended up, on our walk through Citta della Pieve, at this restaurant. Although the pizzas looked delicious ( and I am a connoisseur :-)) , we went for another option. Their mixed anti -pasti was delicious . The ' Pici ' afterwards , was skilfully made and very delicious !!! Compliments to the chef. Really the- place-to... More

We visited this restaurant end of April in our family vacation in Italy. We were 8 people with different preferences. We ordered many different dishes and they were all fantastic! I ate one of the best pizzas I ever ate in my life! The zafferano pizza with sausage. Oh my God....!!! I still dream about it. For main dish I... More

Seriously! All our friends agree, and the owner and wait staff are lovely and friendly. We eat outside for lunch, weather permitting and inside in the cozy taverna is charming.

My favorite pizza is called Pidocchio which was created by owner. All I love the spicy olive oil. The waitress is so kind and hard working.
