We were a party of 14 spending a leisurely afternoon in the restaurant on recommendation of our hotel. Great food, very nice hosts. Fantastic bistecca, great pasta. Nice service. I wish we had a place like this at home.

Great if you like your meat grilled. Our rabbit was good, as was the ribs, but nothing refined, just grilled and the ribs were a bit charcoaled and not the best. Pasta is very good. The dishes don't come with anything so you order extras...More
