“Very good pasta, meat dishes perhaps only worth 3 stars, friendly service”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

I've rated this very good but in truth some aspect of the meals was average. Overall probably more a 3.5 rating! We ordered pasta with sausage and tomato - excellent. Pasta with tomato - good but not great. Grilled mixed meat dish, consisting of pork chop, veal, sausage and bacon...pork excellent, veal average, sausage very good. Veal with porcini and olives, good but not great. Grilled veges - excellent. Salad - OK. Overall cost 43 euros (incl bread and water). Very friendly family run restaurant, cannot be faulted on the service and helpfulness.

“A place to go....”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Definitely a place to go if you are looking for a good, genuine food, very friendly and kind owners.
The restaurant is nice and cosy and it is right in the heart of the little village. The menu is very appealing and we did not know what to choose but they helped us to pick the best according with our taste. Must be tried the mix fried vegetables as a starter, this could easily beats the best tempura!A hard challenge is the super-hot pasta with aubergine and ‘nduja.
When we were there the tiramisu wasn’t available. The owner offered us to come back in a couple of hours because she would have made one especially for us! She definitely mastered the recipe
Hugely satisfied with everything!
