On a rainy afternoon I wandered into this elegant little restaurant on the Piazza in front of S. Maria del Carmine. Excellent "Menu del Giorno" with a delicious Risotto that the region is known for as well as good meat dishes for the second. A glass of local wine quite reasonably priced, so a lunch of 2 courses with glass... More

I had the opportunity to dine in this restaurant and based on the previous reviews I was not disappointed. The restaurant ambiance is relaxing and wait staff was very attentive and pleasant. The wine list is moderate with a nice selection of Italian wines that are properly priced. For the food, I was not disappointed. I had ordered the rissotto... More

On a gloomy rainy day we were looking for a cosy place that served typical local food. We were lucky enough to find this hidden gem on Piazza del Carmine. The owner and manager is an extraordinary woman, super friendly and an absolute pleasure to chat to. We ordered agnolotti al brasato and we were absolutely delighted! The wine was... More

Went here for a quick lunch with Business Colleagues. The restaurant it located in a square with a view of a fantastic church. The service was excellent and fast and the Tortellini was to die for.

On a grey Monday in May we had the restaurant pretty much to ourselves for lunch and it was most enjoyable. Pleasant service and perfectly cooked pasta: good value too.

We had a simple dinner, shared a pizza plus one pasta dish for each of us and a glass of wine. The pizza was one of the best I ever had, unusually 'bready', wonderful flavor and light texture. Pasta's were very well executed and flavorful. Everything was made with love and care. Couldn't wish for more for an affordable dinner!

Amazing placed on a enchanting place in front of a breathtaking church .. The restaurant at first sight looked like the perfect place to eat traditional local cuisine. The service was impeccable .. But the food, unfortunately didn't convince .. Certainly I only had 3 simple dishes (local clear soup, brasato+polenta, cake) ..but these were just ok

Even if outside the main tourist season you need to reserve in advance. The restaurant is nicely located in the same square where you find the Chiesa Santa Maria del Carmine., originally was part of a church around 950 by Bernardo Conti and then again reconstructed in 1652. The Locanda is decorated with warm southern colors. The food is great... More

This restaurant in a wonderful piazza specialises in food for those coeliacs who need gluten free food. Our lunch was so good that we returned for dinner the next day. This time we chose four more courses from the special gluten free menu and again they were superb. The food was really elegantly served too on spectacular dishes and the... More

We went in a group of 8, so I enjoyed a chance to taste several dishes, in addition to my own. All were extremely tasty and refined. A memorable fish and artichokes combination deserves a special mention. The only criticism I could raise is the significantly variable servings of the first courses: certain servings were generous (on Italian standard), others... More
