We had dinner at this restaurant by recommendation of some Italian guests staying at the same Agriturismo as us. The owner was a very friendly man who took the time to explain the menu to us and even showed us online the traditional method of...More

Visited in 2012 and enjoyed our meal there so much we returned again. The food was good and reasonably priced. The owner friendly and although he had as much English as I had Italian he was very helpful and enthusiastic.

Trattoria situata ad un km dal centro,esteticamente lascia a desiderare ma il meglio lo riserva a chi entra la cultura del ricevimento il coccolare il cliente da sempre e stato per noi il punto di forza insieme alle specialita contadine del posto,i risultati ci danno ragione la strada da seguire indubbiamente e questa a voi il compito di scoprirci.
