It’s easy to underestimate a little ristorante on the side of the walk way. It’s small but it has so much. It has history - 1200 years old? See the ceiling and glass floor cut out. It has ambiance - bijou & friendly. It has...great food and service. We loved it. Recommend the tuna, pasta and granny’s cake!More

We were fortunate to get the opportunity to spend some time with di Matteo in his kitchen at this lovely restaurant. The setting is great with interesting architectural features around an old well in the rear of the building. The staff were friendly and welcoming...and di Matteo was the ideal host. We were shown how to make one of the houses signature dishes and sauces and then to enjoy them with some well chosen wines. Well worth a visit.More

We had dinner there 3 nights out of 7!!! Chef Matteo cooked especially for me to accommodate my many food allergies. And everything he made for me was delicious. He can do anything and make it amazing.
