My wife and I travel "off season" so there were few customers at the time we visited. The food was truly exquisite and the service superb. One of the five best restaurants we have eaten at in our 15 trips to Italy. We stayed in Albero Bello the first time we ate there, the second time we were in another town and made the trip to Albero Bello specifically for this restuarant. We recommend it most highly.

The starters here were superb, but the rest of the meal tailed off somewhat. There were only two other tables occupied (on a Friday evening!) which did not help the atmosphere, but it all felt a little stuffy. And it is pretty pricey.

Expensive yes. But above average cuisine, expertly prepared and presented. Very professional and friendly service from the bi-lingual head (lady) waiter. The best meal we had in a 12 day tour. We would certainly go again.
