“fantastic food and wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

This place is simply amazing! Good food prepared with well chosen ingredients. Most of the food is coming from the local North Italy cuisine.
The masterpiece of this place is the wine. Here you can find a huge choice of wine! the value for money is great!
When you order consider that the quantity of food is quite a lot so I suggest to take only a round of entree and a main course or first course and eventually a dessert.
You have to reserve a table before coming because is always full of people but the noise level is relaxed.
Absolutely suggested!!!!!!

“Great starter buffet, the rest so so...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

In this typical restaurant in the tiny village of Oleggio they offer a magnificent buffet of starters which includes just about everything you may wish. Then you can order the main a la carte.
I found the choice of the starters great but the food is not "top notch" but just average. As main we tried a risotto and a soup and they were both disappointing.
To counterbalance this the prices are very reasonable, although they won't tell you how much the starter and the main cost until you pay, which I found very annoying.
Book in advance because it gets busy.
