“Utterly fantastic”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

This really is a lovely little restaurant and I would go back to Urbino just to eat there again. The hosts are so welcoming, kind and attentive and cannot do enough for you. The ambience is lovely (much better than the website would suggest in my opinion) and the food truly award winning. The menu mixes classic dishes with some very innovative ones, and it works well. The beef was exceptional, the cheeses interesting and accompanied by some original relishes. the wine is excellent and it is all very reasonably priced for the high standard it offers. The two meals we had there (in 3 days...so it must be good!) were both ones I will savour for a long time to come.

“Share the 5 course meal, it is too much for one person.”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

The food was great. The view was great as you looked down on one of the main streets to see the people carrying on their business.

“Very nice and quite good”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

In the culinary landscape of Urbino it's one of the best places I know.
A nice place, with a quite elegant atmosphere where it may be relaxing taking a break for a satisfactory meal.
The kitchen offers an interesting compromise between classic Italian cuisine and a certain amount of interesting innovation; it may be nice both for travellers desiring to taste something interesting as well as for Italians.
There also a good choice of wines, served properly.
Of course it's not the cheap restaurant for a fast meal; but if you're enjoying your time in Urbino and want to add something tasty to it... why not!

“Wonderful Evening”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

We loved this restaurant with its beautiful setting. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented from the breads to desert. We asked for wine suggestions, and enjoyed a great Marche wine. It was a perfect evening.

“Serendipity - it made our brilliant day in Urbino”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

"Just follow the smell of truffles", we were told by a lovely old lady. We did and received a warm welcome from Giovanna and Elivio. We took their advice - and our meal was the highlight of the day, putting even the visit to the Palazzo Ducale in the shade. We experienced the subtle flavour of truffle. Each dish was sophisticated yet simple and was beautifully presented. When we learned that the chefs were just 27 and 21 years old, we were amazed. The recommended Marche wine was special.

This is a very special restaurant in every respect.
