Our family of 4 enjoyed a perfect Christmas Eve dinner in this gem of a restaurant. An exquisite assortment of delicious meats and cheese, with a few house specialties on the side, big bowls of vegetable bean soup with tiny gnocchi, fragrant homemade pasta, baccala, grilled lamb on skewers, thin slices of grilled vegetables and radicchio, finished off with delicious homemade donuts drizzled in honey and the house digestiv. The staff is incredibly generous and friendly and made us feel so welcome. The little restaurant was packed on Christmas Eve and had such a festive atmosphere. We left after 3 hours to hear the sound of bellowing church bells over Rivisondoli. A truly memorable evening.
