The antipasti for one was more than enough for two and truly exceptional. The pasta was perfectly cooked (primi piatti) and the rabbit was simply sublime. And the wine (bulk, local aglianico del vulture) was the perfect match to the perfect meal.

We ate here twice. On the first occasion we ate the house starter selection - Pico- enough for 2!!! A great selection which just kept on coming and included little hot dishes too- delicious! My steak was great as were the patate side dish which come with sliced onion and crispy dried peppers. I also tried the trio of desserts- yum!!! Great cave setting and lovely owners serving delicious food. What more can you ask?? Don't be deceived by the initial impression if you peep in the front porch. It is amazing inside!

We absolutely loved the food! After eating pasta all over Italy, I was craving a steak and there it was a steak on the menu, also wonderful roasted potatoes... To top it off, the molten chocolate cake was the best ever. This darling husband - wife team have a great restaurant! Pure ingredients, beautiful decor, great food, impeccable service!!! You can't go wrong here....the stewed rabbit was also a fav!!!

The antipasto was amazing here. It kept coming and the varieties were just wonderful. The pasta we had as a main course was a bit too much for us to handle after such a huge antipasto, but we managed anyway (oh, italy). This was probably the best food we had anywhere in all of Italy.
