This was a delightful place we just happened upon while walking around town. It's a nice hybrid of a deli, self-service, and Italian kitchen. The quality of the food was excellent, and the ladies were very friendly and helpful. The portions were generous but not...More

Not a traditional restaurant, e.g., no table service. Excellent, fresh, home-style cooking. A blessed relief after overdosing on pasta and pizza. Incredible value. Only wish it had been opened last time we visited Colle with a daughter who required gluten-free food. This place is a...More

A simple place, you order your food when you enter, and bring your plates at the back. You can sit inside or outside on a nice terrace. Very friendly lady, excellent food! I would definitely go back!

Dear Guest, thankyou for writing about us. Very often guests walk out of the place because they don't like the fact that there is no table service. For us is very important not to be a restaurant and to make people feel at home. We...More

In our newly opened restaurant and take away, it is all about great tasting natural kitchen that feels like home. We prepare soups and sauces for your pasta, risotto, lots of raw and cooked vegetables, homemade breads with natural yeast and young flours but also meat or fish dishes and sweet breads or schiacciate served with cold cuts and cheese. Everything is homemade on the premises with fresh and seasonal ingredients. We choose our products from local, often organic, producers. It is also a place for vegetarians, raw foodists and vegans and for those who can't eat gluten and are affected by coeliac disease. We use all sorts of beans, chickpeas, lentils and lots of vegetables to prepare special gluten-free meals and we have fresh smoothies or fruit and vegetable juiceson our menu. On saturdays and sundays we serve an amazing english breakfast... You can come and choose what you like from our selection and take it home or eat it here. A complete lunch or dinner menu is available on demand, and we also offer cooking classes! Come and see us soon!
