Bruschetta and pasta were delicious, but scaloppine al limone were especially good. Great place for lunch or dinner, definitely worth visiting. The view from the terrace is a wonderful addition to lovely meal.

We ate at the Osteria il Bandito and the food was amazing. It is a small family business with the son serving the food and the mother preparing it. The caprese insalata was delicious and the view was beautiful.

The selection of sardinian cheeses for appetizer was very tasty, as well as the tuscan sausage. The tagliata with rocket and parmesan was wonderfully tasty. We wish we can go back there soon enough to have it again...

Very reasonably priced, good food and right next to the Cantalici Winery. The menu is quite extensive and the food and service were good.
