My mum and me visited this cute little cafe half an hour before close on a Monday night -the worst customers, in our defence the place is a little hard to find if you don't know where to look, and the address reported here on TripAdvisor is slightly wrong. Despite this, the owner welcomed us warmly, and rushed to rustle... More

Travelling back to Rome from Tuscany, stopped for a lunch break and we were greeted by the owner. Said he wanted to educate us as travellers in Italian cuisine. 'Eating and drinking'. Had cold cuts, apperitifs, pasta with beautiful sauce. Lovely wine and a main with lovely organic veg. Got to try some dessert with a dessert wine and of... More

After some minutes of searching we found the place somewhere we did not expect it to be. We asked for a table for 2, however the owner told us it was not a tipical restaurant (more for lunch and getting a apperatif) and if we really wanted a diner he suggested some other places. He told us that he liked... More

We showed up at this restaurant at 245pm. We asked if it was too late for lunch and Daniele immediately replied, "It's never too late to eat!" So began our adventure. We let him chose our menu and the pasta with asparagus sauce was the best pasta we had had in our 5 days in Italy so far. Everything is... More

If u are driving from Roma to Tuscany via the coast this is a great lunch spot. Great food...we had pasta followed by a big platter of salad ...so good to get a nice salad when traveling. Staff were very helpful and accommodating.

Tucked into a little strip mall and with lettering that barely shows on the window! This little pt was a high point of our recent trip. We arrived later than expected (I had emailed the owner to warn of our visit and my gluten issues) and at the far end of their lunch service but after a brief discussion with... More

This place at first glance looks like another standard upscale coffee bar, with an impressive offering of wines. Once inside, you realize just how many amazing dishes, experiences and take home food the wonderful and friendly staff have to offer. The wine selection is FANTASTIC! The organic food section is impressively well-stocked. The aperitivo is DELICIOUS. I recommend this place... More

After reading other reviews we turned off the motorway especially to try this place and the organic produce... And we were definitely not disappointed. After being greeted by the owner he suggested that he bring food so we can eat as the Italians do. We definitely felt like we had an authentic local experience, the food was consistently tasty, fresh... More
