A lovely fine dining restaurant, this establishment will not disappoint you. Family run, with wife Silvana at the stove and husband Danilo in the dining room, it was as great a discovery as it was accidental - and must thank Tripadvisor for that.
The dining room is bright and cosy, wood panelling all around and a beautiful old school map of the region adorning one of the walls.
But you come here for the food, and it is great. I've been three or four times already, and quality is consistely good. The menu has something to offer to everyone, from fresh salads (the tripe one with Tropea onions and pomodorini was terrific), to more hearty pasta dishes, to stunning mains: I can't decide if I liked better the amazing pork belly, or a delicious lamb, or a properly done roe deer saddle with wild mushrooms.
Chef Silvana has a light hand that delivers powerful flavours with refinement, and Maitre d Danilo pampers you at the beautifully laid table - do study the wine list carefully, as prices are sweet (I'd recommend splurging on a San Leonardo).
Don't miss it!
