Delicious local cuisine. Just a few steps from our accommodation. Wine not too bad either! Friendly, and happy staff.

Family run and friendly, dinner outside, right on the Piazza Grande, at this place was tremendous. The food was simple, exceptionally flavoursome and nicely presented. The staff couldn't have been more efficient and were competent at explaining - in at least four languages from what I could hear - each dish. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Superb. Our family has been traveling throughout southern Europe for several weeks now and of all the restaurants we've visited thus far - everyone enjoyed this food most. The wait staff was kind and the location was great. Sitting outside, even on a hot summer day is enjoyable because there is shade from the buildings & umbrellas and plenty of... More

Delicious! Cozy! Pretty! Thanks. I recommended to visit and lunch try the gnocchi pesto! Whe you sit outside under the umbrella you feel the air of the town, a hundred history! Magical

Visited for lunch (without a reservation) with family (7 of us). Got a lovely table outside overlooking the Piazza. The service was attentive, courteous, friendly and helpful (we speak no Italiano!). The food was so good, small portion sizes but filling all the same and absolutely delicious - this must be the organic local produce they use! We only had... More

The food is outstanding -- amazing fresh from their garden with great flavors. Dessert is wonderful! Our waitress was great fun, helped with wine selections and (easily) convinced us to try their delicious desserts. Great location in the market square too! Swing by and make a reservation for the evening so you don't miss out!

This small restaurant, just off Piazza Grande, is much quieter than the restaurants closer to the main tourist area. It offers simple, traditional food based with ingredients coming from their organic farm. We had crostini and pici, both very tasty. The wines were not spectacular but did go well with the food. The service is friendly. Although the terrace is... More

This is our second visit to this restaurant. It did not disappoint. They took us at 9 pm without a reservation and gave us the best seat on the piazza with a beautiful breeze. We had bruschetta, lasagne, sausage with rosemary potatoes and a scrumptious cake with grappa and espresso. We can't wait to return.
