Spectacular. We were looking for a restaurant to go to on a Monday night, fortunately for us C'era una volta was open, which was an unbelievable stroke of luck. This place is fantastic. You could spend your life here.

In a suburban location with the best intentions but with the forced desire to twist and improve the classics whilst creating little optimisation.

One of our best meals. Beautiful food and impeccable friendly service. The chef and her husband take such obvious pride in presenting wonderful local fresh food. The antipasto is a must!

Visited this lovely little restaurant that doesn't look like much from the outside. Food was great but the service was perfect. Felt like eating at someone's home even though they didn't speak much English. Fixed something of menu for the kids without hesitation.

The restaurant is the perfect place to eat and drink together, for lunch, Sundays and holydays, and for dinner, on unique place for an aperitif accompanied by appettizing preparation.Starting from 18,00 you can taste "torta al testo" bruschette, salumi and also inviting home made past and succulent meats.Smell of old dishes, typical cuisine of the traditional territory.Unmistakable tastes accompanied by a well-stocked wine bar all served in a comfortable and welcoming environment, with a relaxing outdoor space.The right place to spend pleasant moments all to "taste".
