Absolutely terrible experience. Too salty, too greasy, very cheap ingredients, unrefrigerated white wine, expensive for what you get.

Unlike my visit last Summer when it was extremely hot, for this visit it was raining so we sat inside, which was fine. Arrived a bit early, direct from airport, so had a drink in the bar next door, all part of the Kaval. I started with Porcini with Treviso Radicchio which was great, fresh and full of flavour. Followed... More

This is a Great place to eat, close to the road, isolated in the green surrondings. Tried Argentina steak and it was a good choice, medium done with different vegetables, cheese. I would also recommend Mascarpone rolad as a desert.

Ambient is quite nice (Tuscany style). I was not that hungry so i ordered a pasta with truffles which is my favorite... More

Together with coworkers we decided to go for a dinner. We chose it due to the fact that it is a restaurant on a bit higher level. We were positively surprised , the service was however a bit slow, but the food was delicious. We had pizzas, pasta, sea food and stakes and all of them were excellent. We weren't... More

I love this place. It's a restaurant on a higher level. the service is very good and the waiters are very professional. The prices are a little higher than in other restaurant but so is the service. The food is always good. Pizzas are great.

We had a reservation for a party if five, ages ranging from 29 to 66. We were promptly seated, the restaurant was comfortable and attractive, and the service was excellent--including descriptions, suggestions, timeliness, and checking... More
