We visited here for lunch one day as we had hired a moped to visit Catiglione and Alcantara Gorges. The food was wonderful, the waiter was so lovely and the price was fantastic. A must visit!

We didn't know where to go. Some locals recommended this place. Very nice and charming owner/cook. Good regional meet and pasta dishes. High quality olive oil and vinegar which is always a good indicator. No Tourist prices. The location is as authentic as it's owner. We'll come back next year!
