Tripadvisor says that the restaurant closes at 15:00, yet the kitchen is closed sooner. We arrived at 14:15 for lunch and were not allowed entering. Better change the info!

I call Osteria del Melograno the restaurant of many dreams because it represents a successful culmination of the owner's vision. His vision was to one day create a restaurant encompassing a variety of good food, wine and atmosphere. Sure enough, the Osteria del Melograno does...More

Usually when we enter in a Tavern (Osteria) we expect passable food, low prices and decent location. Well, this is not that situation. Food is very refined, well cooked and with good ingrdients. Recipes are not banal. Location is perfect: a nice alley in the...More
