Delicious traditional food, large portions, careful service. And Cissone is a beautifully preserved tiny old village in the middle of gorgeous hills. Absolutely recommended.

Friends recommended this agritourismo place, we stayed here and had a wonderful rustic dinner. I specially loved the carpaccio and other antipastis.. The rooms had a reasonable price and were nice and clean. The staff is very friendly. I hope to come back here again.
