Amazing little reataurant tucked away in a little corner in Viterbo. Make sure you book because it is tiny but offers outdoor seating. The food was excellent especially the purple Gnocchi. The only reason that this review is not a 5 is because my last...More

A real treat after a pleasant walk in a surprisingly nice town rich in art and culture. This small restaurant has tables outside under one of the many historical arcs of the city center. The menu is short but rich in authenticity and personality with...More

Great taste, authentic. Everything you would expect from the definition of a "very good restaurant": Very cute place, fast and pleasant service, delicious food, and for a very fair price.

Went with my family to celebrate 2 birthdays and had a blissful time. They serve regional dishes and everything we tried (Pasta con i peperoni, Acquacotta, Salsiccia, Risotto alle erbe selvatiche) was fabulous and portions very generous. The local wine very strong, and service was...More

Pasta and meat is really good but I would suggest avoiding the tripe - it's a local dish but not nice! First and only time of eating tripe - never again. In the summer it's a lovely setting to sit outside. Service is good and...More

The only good thing about it - quite friendly stuff. They said sorry few times while we were waiting for the food which was awfully long. Literally, it was almost an hour. After all we've got too small rabbits (quite tasty, but nothing special), one...More
