Very bizarre way to get there, we almost didn't enter because it looked closed or at least not interesting. When entering we heard noises of people eating and decided to eat there as the restaurant was almost full. If there are that much people eating...More

Everything is good about this restaurant. The location is pleasantly rustic, although I was told that the place is actually quite new and decorated in old style. We went with friends and had a selection of food, inclusive of great antipasti, pasta and meat dishes....More

I was with a cycling group, so we had the advantage of local relationships. The food was all very good, and the wine list was impressive. We ended up with a relatively inexpensive (though not strictly cheap) Barolo which was very good indeed. Service was...More
