Draught beer was either mixed with water or way too old, side dish cold potatoes were served after 45 minutes waiting, gnocchi pasta was infant size portion and instead of veal was served plate of pork which was prepared in the morning.

There were six of us on dinner. The restaurant has parking place and nice view. Waitress didn't know single word of English, they didn't have menu in English. The draft beer had colour and taste like it was diluted with water. Finally, food was the worst part. We were getting our fodd one by one. Baked potatoes from the oven... More

It was a total disaster. We passed by on our way back from Tuscany and saw the high rating on Tripadvisor, so we stopped for lunch which was a mistake. The cook was yelling in the kitchen and tried to serve and clean the tables while the restaurant was full of people. Once we had the food we knew why.... More

We had a lunch on a sunday at La Rupe, the place was full and we had a reservation. Nice little place with a great view. The homemade pasta was really great, the Fiorentina very nice and the dolci was the best ever. The whole table was filled with dolci and all of them unbelievable! Grazie La Rupe

From 15 October 2013 re-open the restaurant with the old management, "David & Roberta Galli" ... keeping the tradition of the past, even if years pass The Cliff Restaurant keeps getting a great value. We hope to make your evening enjoyable, to present the dishes of a typical meat to your liking. -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------ Almost as protected from the rock upon Porrettana, and with the background of the Emilian Apennines, there arose in a unique location, the restaurant "La Rupe" in Sasso Marconi. The rustic stone walls and blends gently contrasts with the style of the restaurant, embellished with dark wooden furniture and muted by the warm atmosphere of candlelight that welcomes the customer. Elegance and attention to detail, as one approaches, the familiarity, warmth and friendliness with which David Galli has been able to make "unique" and its unforgettable ristorante.Nelle long summer evenings on the terrace where the natural view goes far beyond, to the first hints of the Apennines, or on cold winter evenings, wrapped in the warm embrace of soft light, David, welcomes you with its Tuscan-inspired cuisine Emiliana who already got in a short time reporting on the most prestigious sector guides: Gambero Rosso, Michelin Guide, and Veronelli BMV and has been able to appeal to customers by the discerning palate, also made up of well-known personalities from the world of entertainment and sport.La cuisine ranges from the mixture of starters home including a "little pillow" stir-fry with balsamic vinegar served on a plate of arugula, the classic Tuscan crostini with crispy bacon and scrambled with egg, fresh pasta, homemade fried noodle specialties. Truly unique, because it is very small, our tortellini in broth, a real treat for connoisseurs. Turning to the second dish is the steak "Fiorentina" cooked on the grill and served to table center has already been cut in one piece from at least 1 Kg In addition, the Chef proposes chicken and rabbit jumped with Champagne. Finally the desserts all homemade, pudding with white chocolate and passion fruit tart with a heart of melted ice cream and other ...... In season truffles and porcini mushrooms. All washed down with fine wines, a wine cellar stocked and invidiabile.Allora you come up with your mouth? We are waiting ....... soon!
