We were recommend this restaurant by the B&B up the road (Tenuta Cusmano). This place has charming Italian decor with authentic local food that is top quality. It is very reasonably priced with the 2 of us spending around 42euros for a couple of courses and a bottle of wine. The elderly gentleman who was our waiter made us feel... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch on a recommendation from our hotel. It was Friday, seafood day. We were warmly greeted and and had wonderful service. The very nice waiter suggested a few things to try and they were all delicious. We wanted a fish for our second course but did not know which one so they brought... More

We ate here twice and enjoyed the food immensely. Our waiter was very welcoming and helpful. For lunch we had the antipasto misto and returned that evening for more.

Had a lovely meal here. As this is a local restaurant there was no English menu available but our very helpful waiter went through the menu with us. Lots of different types of pasta, some we had never heard of, and there were lots of tasty sounding options. Plenty of choice for vegetarians too (though it was not a fish-only... More

The star of this place is the food. Plentiful portions and very tasty. The staff were very helpful and accommodating although we arrived at the end of the night. Probably one of the best priced restaurants in the area, especially given the amount of awards it has received.

We chose here as it did Mediterranean and Italian food. As my Italian is very poor we struggled to understand the menu fully - but discovered there was no fish offered during the week. We still had a lovely meal and nice house white!

The restaurant feels like whay you would hope to find in this area: large tables, with plenty of space, Roman feel, local people. We had great nappetizers: fresh seasonal funghi, wonderful mozzarella di buffala, good local Lazio red wine. The meats were somewhat disappointing: roast maialino and agnello were Ok but not outstanding. Good service, but not memorable. Overall, we... More
