Authentic regional dishes, the staff gives service in fluent english. The best dish by far was the pork ribs in lambrusco wine, and the gramigna with cream and sausage is highly recommended as well!

We had the tasting menu #2, for 33 euro per person but more of a tasting menu it was a feasting menu! All dishes were big and great, but the gnocchi with pumpkin was amazing, also the pork ribs.
