This is a hotel/inn with a marvelous restaurant. The grounds, with its magnificent roses, are a delight to enjoy before or after a meal. We did not stay at the hotel; we only had lunch after a visit to Deruta. The hotel is on the outskirts of town, easy to access from highway. The restaurant was a real surprise -... More

We had a fantastic lunch here last Sunday and everything was delicious. The service was very good and the staff very friendly. My husband ordered the tiramisu which he loved. Great spot for a meal in a more upscale atmosphere.

Only a few (8 ?)reasonably priced, quiet and very comfortable rooms. Samuele is helpful and friendly. Breakfast options are plentiful, tasty and fresh. This is a great value in a superb setting. Loved our five nights here as a base to explore Umbria and Tuscany

Easter lunch with large family. Good service. Fixed menu based on quality and on genuine fantasy rather than on quantity which is rather common in this area. Lonza and lasagna with asparagus and bacon to be highlighted. Most of the food was from local ingredients.

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
