We had three dinners here while at our stay in Montefiascone. Excellent food and wonderfully cosy atmosphere. Traditional style Italian restaurant and the host is a great character. We had pasta, steak, pizza, antipastos and the lentil soup in particular is fantastic and white wine to die for.

We ate here when staying in the town for a night while walking the Via Francigena and had a great meal. The flavours were amazing, all very authentic with interesting local dishes and excellent wine - all good value. It's not the most sophisticated in style, but that wasn't what we were looking for - all in all, one of... More

My wife and I ate dinner here after walking from Bolsena on the Bia Francigena. We wanted seafood and were not disappointed - the acciuga (marinated anchovies) appetizer was fantastic and we both had fried lake perch (even though I had ordered the baked perch)- still very good portions and flavors washed down with a nice local wine !

Montefiascone is one of the few places in Italy that produces white wine. The fact that it is a world class white wine is a well kept secret. This charming restaurant serves a local white that is not available for purchase except by carafe in the restaurant. Enforcing my view that everywhere in the world they keep the best stuff... More

Ate dinner here on a Monday night while walking the Via Franigena. We were the only customers apart from one other table who came in later. Food was very tasty, filling and well cooked.decor is quirky and the host accommodating. The carafe house red is excellent and incredibly cheap. All up for three courses and wine we paid 45 euro...

Excellent food at excellent price. It looks small outside but inside it is long and warm. Definitely a place to go to when in Montefiascone. I'm lucky live here and it is 100 meters from my house.

My wife and I went to this restaurant for two different lunches while we were staying outside of Montefiascone this past summer. This restaurant has a very relaxing atmosphere, with nice murals of Lake Bolsena on one wall. The man who served us was very pleasant, and the service was very good. The menu is quite large and impressive, with... More

This restaurant is a few hundred metres away from the hotel we are staying in, so we thought we would give it a chance as it gets dark so early at the time of the year and we didn't want to get lost in the charming town of Montefiascone in the dark. There was only one other couple dining when... More

We could feel that this place have had many joyful guests through in good old days. We were not among them! Sitting alone with an extra oven under the table Plain food, plain wine and no feeling of being important guests. We are always using Trip Advisor when traveling, but for the town of Montefiascone we had more than one... More

We went to Montefiascone by chance and entered this modest restaurant by chance too! We had the restaurant all for ourselves as it was a Monday at 11.30am. The food was excellent, plenty of truffles and tasty fresh extra virgin olive oil. I would recommend this restaurant. The decoration is gorgeous...the cow keeps looking at you were ever you move!
