You have to visit - this is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Visually arresting and wonderful food. We've been a few times now and it's always great.

If you ever make it here, don't leave without seeing the underground ancient cellar that goes for miles... You can also have a lovely set up there for dinner with candles lights: very romantic! Amazing food, very well presented and executed. They also have a small hotel (locanda) next door which is very posh and pricey but completely worth for... More

Very beautiful and great food. We were a little lost with the menu, but the waiter was very helpful and spoke English. Check out the cellar!

A wonderful, classic meal in a 'room' (more like a grotto) dating back as far as the 9th century. Truly great food, excellent service and a remarkable setting with warm ambiance. Definitely an occasion to remember - and only 40 kms from Fiumicino!

this was my second time at this restaurant (the first was a year ago). my expectations were crazy high based on my last meal here; but there is no disappointment possible at this restaurant. every aspect -- the decor, the service, and especially the food -- are incomparable.

I had the opportunity to be there several times on the past 11 years, and the quality and taste is very consistent. The owners are really nice people and they are always please to serve the guests. You have to try all the house products, Wine, Olive oil, Liquor, etc... The must is the strawberry tiramisu on this picture...

Best restaurant in Castelli Romani area. This area is well known in Italy for being the food and beverage district of Roma inter land. This restaurant mix the excellence of services with local food. Services is great. Style of taverna is nice. Go there for dinner if you are in Rome. It deserve a visit!

We had an extraordinarily good time there. The ambiance of this restaurant is great: Stone walls, a few big Roman lights, lots of flowers and plants, a few atntiques, makes you feel like in an ancient albergo. There are several connected areas on two levels. We saw only locals there, and elegant ones. We had a wonderful roast maialino (suckling... More
