Undoubtedly the best Porchetta sandwich I have had in my entire life. I have tried many Porchetta sandwiches across the world, but nothing beats the one from this place. It is a must. Try the coppiette (jerky) as well!

We ordered an antipasto which was simply amazing! Mozzarella di bufola, salami, parma ham, cottage cheese, other types of ham and cheeses! What else could you want?? It was simply one of the...

Had an exquisite Porchetta panino with crispy and savoury Ariccia bread. One of the best ever. Friendly owners and nice service. Other good foods available too. Suggest outdoor in warm season.

We eat here at least once every time we are in Ariccia. The Amatriciana sauce is one of our favorites along with the porchetta and the other cured meats. The owner is very friendly and always gabs with us. Sometimes her cook comes out and chats with us, as well.
