“Good, not great!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

The panzanella salad is an amazing dish not to be missed, the pasta with prawns was good, but lacked an abundance of flavor.
Do not plan to get out fast, everything is made to order and we were served food at different times.

“Heavenly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Housed within an historic church the setting is great - just off the town square. Portions are not for the feint hearted - so make sure not to over-indulge on the bread or antipasti. Service was excellent and you'll need to book ahead - very popular.

“Atmosphere plus!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Located in a former church. Fantastic food and magnificent wine list. Exceptional service from Marco the manager. Only negative the portions are large so hard to get through 3 courses which is a shame as food is just so good.

“AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This place is AMAZING! Great food and a wonderful vibe put forth by people who really care about creating a great experience for their guests. Don't come if you're in a hurry, as this place is to be savored. Everything is made to order, and is prepared with the utmost care. We're so glad we chose to try Papposileno our first night in Cavriglia. We met some wonderful people and had such a good time we returned for our last night as well!

“Outstanding...but be patient..it's worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Everything about this small town restuarant speaks ''large City''. The qulaity of the food, the service, the ambience and the wine list all combine to make this a delightful dining experience. And at a level of finesse and quality you would only expect to find in a high priced city restuarant. Even the bill wasn't a surprise. If I was going to have to paint one drawback on an otherwise outstanding meal it was the wait for service. With only one waiter the evening we visited he was hard pressed to keep a level of service you felt the environment and food deserved. It wouldn't detract me from re-visiting as it was all worth the wait.
