Everything should be accompanied with good wine, choosing Enoteca the best national and most local ones, but this mention goes sandwiched between the dealer grappa and bitter, bitter Giocondo and ratafia Presidium. It is not yet time to go, because you must try at least one of the tempting delicacies such as cream pie cooked, hot scartellate with honey, jam tarts and local nougat parfait. Really worth the trip.

This place was suggested to me by a friend, and they certainly did not disappoint. The antipasto was absolutely delicious, and the cannoli was to die for. The service was exceptional and the selection of wines was one of the best so far.

Definite 11/10 would recommend to everyone.

Once in a lifetime dining experience! Greeted and cared for by Elisabetta, beautiful young woman who went out of her way to explain menu in English to us non Italian speaking Aussies. The family have owned the ristorante over three generations - Nono still manages the kitchen, makes the fresh pasta, Elisabetta is her grandaughter.The food was amazing, freshly cooked and abundant! We had dinner on a Sunday night, missing the very crowded family lunches. A visit to this ristorante and the village of Rivsondoli is a wonderful experience. Being summer a lot of accommodation places were closed but we had booked a B/B months ahead. This is a mountain village which is covered in snow in winter and hosts many ski lodges.

Have been here for dinner while enjoying the nice fresh air in Rivisondoli.. Far from the warm main town. Some pizza and cheese as starter, then cordicelle with ham, sausages, speak, this is a type of pasta homemade really a plasure for your mouth. Had filetto of scottona as second dish just great! Tasted tagliatelle alla morronese not bad neither. Wine and amaro giocondo excellent quality.
No room for dessert unfortunately, but homemade tarts looked good as well.
Definetely worth coming back when in Rivisondoli.

this is a charming typical regional restaurant. 3 generations run the place and went out of their way to serve us dishes without meat or fish :)
It has a charming location - we will be back.
