“Best minestrone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The best minestrone soup I have ever had. Went back for lunch three times. Good house red and meat ravioli in a tomato sauce.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

recommended by our hotel which ran the restaurant at one time (10% discount for guests of Albergo al Carugio).
Nice local place. Had some of the best pesto with my gnochhi I ever had (considering I make my own, that's a biggie!).my brother had pici pasta with meat sauce, also delish! Service was good and not rushed. would go back again.

“Very nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I liked it very much. Typical, warm, the staff was friendly, the food perfect. Try the acchuga! There's not much of a view there on daytime, but at night it turns cozy and warm.

“Good food and friendly service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Very good food and service. We arrived late and were the last customers to be seated. As a result we were the last ones left in the resturant after closing, but we were not rushed. In fact the wait staff engaged with us describing some of the local foods to try in the future and providing samples of the local wines.
