The restaurant is in the lower floors of a medieval building and has vaulted arches, quiet corners; it feels intimate and warm. We started by sharing some crostini and entrees, and then chose our own mains. The food... More

Have been there twice.. So far. Go for pizza Tuesday-Sunday.., closed Wed. You won't be disappointed. Try some pappardelle alla chingiale... Robust flavors. The local wine was delicious and dinner is unrushed. Staff friendly even if you don't speak Italian. Credit cards ok.

If you like great food in a comfortable medieval room then this is the place for you. More than adequate servings of terrific local fare, combined with good service made this a most enjoyable meal. If we have the time we would certainly return.

Rubbish and even worse service, do yourselves a favour and don't go near the place. If your Italian o.k. but if your not he will just take your money and tell you to f--- o--

The family loves this restaurant - go often. Food is classic regional, although sometimes with twists. The environment is lovely, prices honest, pasta truly great, meat well prepared, decent wine list although house wine is too good to turn down, hosts gracious. Can't fault.

We have just spent 3 days at this simple hotel and received a warm welcome. The service was very friendly and the rustic cooking was good, particularly the fresh pasta which was delicious.
