“A bit dated in appearance, but good quality traditional food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

This restaurant, attached to a Hotel, is a sight to behold. Situated on a cliff edge, strutting into a valley overlooking Amelia, the view from the restaurant is worth a visit alone.

The hotel itself looks quite dated like many other Italian restaurants. Despite this the restaurant is spotless and the staff are very professional - something of a rarity here in the UK. The food is traditional to the region and you can get a very good meat platter and some tasty local pastas. It's simple, but good.

We've been several times and have never been disappointed. Would certainly recommend if looking for somewhere to go for a good, simple, but tasty dinner. (Plus, it's very good value!)

“Simplicity and kindness !!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2009

In a stunning position set in a cliff surronded by the woods and the delicate hills of Umbria region the hotel does not want to give you much more, unfornutately rooms and everything is not at the same level of the landscape. "Cold" rooms furnished in a poor style with a soft wall (you can hear you neighbour snoring !) and a bathroom too simple!!
What a pity, because owners and all the staff are very polite and provide every request:
Stay here a couple of days if you are travelling in this region !!!
