Description: Our kitchen is easy and genuine and we only use seasonal ingredients, as it was in the 60's when we could eat pumpkins only in autumn and oranges during winter. We prefer to use goods coming from Italian family-run farms because we really care of quality and authenticity of our food. Bread, pasta and desserts are hand made by our cook; the real Italian coffee is made with the coffeepot as Italian families always do. The furniture and all the details remind our childhood and youth age (our means... Of the restaurant's owners!!). Don't be upset if the tables are variously colored and the chairs are different...The glasses and the plates as well! We have recreated an informal, joyful and pleasant atmosphere, in order to bring our not-more-teenager guests back to their youth; and to let the younger ones know how their parents or grandparents lived.

A neat 60s-jukebox atmosphere, this small restaurant gets its name from its use of milk instead of stock for its risotto. The “risoelatte” was tasty, but not a knock-out. Our salmon and cutlet were good. The servers speak little English but were attentive. An off-beat alternative.

We stopped off for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant was decorated to make you feel that you were right inside a very friendly Italian home. The service added to this feel - you were made to feel you were right at home. As the name suggests, risotto is definitely a speciality and definitely the best we had when in Italy. It was more subtly flavoured than some of the other over salted risotto we had on our trip - exceptionally tasty as a result. The menu is small but dishes are well prepared and tasty and just a fun occasion out.

We spent the month of May in Italy and of all the restaurants this was the most memorable. Here you find a unique blend of excellent food preparation with their take on many classic dishes, including the delicious dish the restaurant is named after,with an amusing setting which is comfortable yet a little quirky with decorative effects that leave you with the impression you are in a local home in the 60s. As good as the food is,the service is equally pleasing- good recommendations, constant efforts to make the dining experience enjoyable and proper timing of the service. All of this plus a local chef named Elvis.

I was told about this restaurant and was a bit sceptical as it is a themed 60's restaurant .The decor is Italian 60's.
I had a plate of pasta with squash and sea food.Fresh ,beautifully cooked.The tastes was superb.
I was recommended something the chef had invented.Described as an avocado and chocolate cheese cake ,with a buck wheat base.We were so amazed by this desert we spoke to the chef to congratulate him.
