A CORNER OF PARADISE FOR MEAT LOVERS

Location top, easy for parking. Cozy and warm atmosphere, even who is not a meat lover will love to try it, or else so many beautiful alternatives. Great wine carte and kind and tailored service. You really feel taken care.

The evening had an auspicious start when we arrived at this restaurant we were met by the owner who scowled at us and gave no reply to our greeting. However, we were shown to a table and a very delightful waitress (who spoke some English) took our order. All was well after that - and we were served a wonderful... More

30 mins to receive the menu and 10 minutes more to taste the warm sparkling wine. This restaurant is highly recommended-I will give you my view if I don't pass away waiting for my meal. Well the starters finally arrived and we all enjoyed it. Big time lapse to next intervention from waiters asking if we would like to order... More

The place looked great, with possibility of dining outside under the trees. Service was excellent, and the food incredibly tasty. I really enjoyed the background music, too (Eric Clapton)

I had known the co-owner for the last 30 years, well before he decided to open with a friend the restaurant "La Cucina di Petrarca", and each time I was his guest at his house, I was always impressed by his passion for cooking, food and wine. As a former farmer, among other activities his family was involved in, he... More

We arrived at the restaurant in a violent thunderstorm. When we entered the restaurant, it was warm, a fire going in the cooking area, and soft lighting throughout. Everything about our visit was very good: the welcome and service, the food, the wine and the ambiance. I asked for my steak med. rare and that's what I got. We had... More
