“Excellent all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Met another couple that was staying at the same hotel as us and they recommended Il Rifugio. We met them for dinner that night and the staff welcomed them like old friends. They were wonderful and the food was excellent. They even gave us a cake for dessert on the house. And iced creamed limoncello and umbrellas. We didn't want to leave. We had a lovely meal and a bottle of local wine and it only cost 40 E.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is great. Great, great, great. We were wondering if we cooked better Italian at home in Michigan USA than all the tourist-trap cr&# we were encountering in Italy. We struck gold here. It's a new place with a young owner who knows what he's doing. "Start with impeccably clean bathrooms," he said. That was achieved, but the food is even more impressive. My discerning wife pronounced "best salad EVER." They make their own wines, which I thought were OK - young and not going to age much - and a very good wine list. Service is the best we've experienced in Italy. A gem. Just go and get the table near the fireplace.
