“Simply Splendid”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

The Santini family made us welcome from the moment we walked in until we left.

There was never anything that was a trouble and the food was absolutely superb.

The service was exemplary and we were treated to the most wonderful meal and fantastic experience.

It is a must visit.

“Incredible service, wonderful experience”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

This was the second of three three stars we were visiting as part of our honeymoon in Italy. We travelled to this area especially for this restaurant and it was worth the journey. I couldnt possibly list all the small touches that made this the ultimate, and best restaurant experience from a service and hospitality point of view we have ever had.

The service was simply above and beyond--and for a three star restaurant, where perfection is the minimum standard, this is really saying something. We got a real sense of warmth and affection from the staff--perhaps a reflection of how this is family-run from kitchen to table? We have even framed the menu, which has a beautiful oil painting on the front, and hung it in our place.

The highlight of the food was without doubt the pumpkin tortelli, which is purely and simply worth the journey by itself--epic. The suckling pig dish was the one let down, especially as we had had the same dish, and an incredible one, at Le Calandre two nights before. The sparkling wine as apperatif and wine itself was amazing, superb and insane value (this isnt to mention that we were treated to a couple of glasses of digestif and our second glass of sparkling on the house--another wonderful act of generousity).

We would recommend to anyone

“Best cooking and welcome in Italy !”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

We had a dinner at Dal Pescatore in June 2011. The welcome is absolutely fantastic. Giovanni Santini knows how to welcome you and at the end you fill like having a dinner at a friend's house. The cooking is exceptional and I have to say that the 170 euro menu is a real bargain. Most of the courses are based on local Italian recipes with high quality local products. 3 stars Michelin since 1996. Unforgettable !
