Dining here is an entire travel experience in itself. The host is warm, accomplished, and urbane. One feels like old friends of his. His art (sculpture and paintings) is everywhere -- not obtrusive, but provides a wonderfully sensory addition to the crackling of the fire in the oversized fireplace. And the food? Oh my! Both traditional and creative, it leaves you with the happy sense of having dined to perfection. Don't mean to be fulsome, but this restaurant is outstanding in my book.

My sister and brother and I returned to il Giardino in December 2012 almost as a pilgrimage. The place is a long-time fixture in the region. The owner Giovanni, is an artist and a sculptor extraordinaire. And a chef! His warm greeting, remembering us from years past, and his very interesting and diverse works of art (sculpture in stone, wood, metal, sketches, paintings in oil) in the restaurant, made this an unforgettable visit. We had grilled swordfish and linguine with prawns, both of which were fresh off the boats that morning, and cooked and presented to perfection. They were able to accomodate a glutine allergy with no trouble, and deliciously. A large open fireplace adds some nice ambiance for December, and Giovanni will bring a great wine. This place is worth a special trip, for a romantic dinner, or a whole family. We recommend it enthusiastically.
