found this restaurant through Tripadvisor during the holidays. It's an incredible setting, in the middle of the countryside. Wouldn't have found it without the charming habitants of Deruta who jumped in their car to guide us there! Excellent service, great quality on a sublime terrace...we loved it!!! It's more a couples thing then family, but Italians love children anyway, so..... More

Just got home from a most memorable meat. The food was presented in the most amazing way for each course and tasted wonderful. There are some really lovely choices, I had pigeon, and the portions are generous and very reasonably priced. The wine list is also great, we had wine by the glass which meant we could sample a couple... More

Returned in July for our third visit and were welcomed by the whole Rodella Family including their latest addition a beautiful granddaughter. Also some new additions in terms of nice new bathrooms. However it is the warmth and genuine welcome from this family along with fantastic food that make this one of our favourite places in Italy. The pool is... More

My wife and I stayed three nights here while exploring Western Umbria. It is an excellent base from which to reach many wonderful hill towns, including Spoleto, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi and Montefalco. The rooms are very nice, but you should plan on having dinner here each evening. The younger brother is as talented a chef as we encountered during our... More

We originally intended to visit for one night and stayed for four. A beautifully restored 17th century house on sculptured grounds amid the ancient hill towns of the Umbrian countryside. A completely family-run establishment with a breathtaking level of service quality. Two sons are (internationally) trained chefs and produce some of the most strikingly beautiful dishes from local produce in... More

This is a lovely restaurant near Deruta. The presentation of the antipasti and desserts were really lovely. Good Umbrian food, very good service and a lovely old building. Close by is the very interesting Madonna Dei Bagni This is also a hotel, beautiful grounds and a swimming pool. Near the E45 road between Rome and Perugia
