We ate filet steak in red wine that was out of this world. The house red wine was very good, the service was personal although not very quick .Was not very expensive

Would not say the food was exquisite, but cannot say it was bad either. Service was fine, setting a bit outdated, food and wine were as one can expect in Italy. Not overwhelmingly surprised though.

We were recommended this restaurant by a shop keeper in San Gim who must have been a friend of the owner. Easy to park further along off the pavement. Great views over the valley. Service was good. Waiter went out of his way to explain dish constructions. Cannot say we were blown away with the quality of the food though. Plentiful servings. Tiramisu was a bit like slop.

Our tour group had the restaurant all to ourselves for a long leisurely meal. We started with a sparkling white wine - Prosecco di Valdobbiadene - served with potato dumplings in a cream of yellow sweet pepper sauce and pasta with tomatoes, aubergines and courgettes. All local and fresh. Our second "piatti" consisted of peposa alla medicea con polenta fritta and prosciutto al vapore con patate speziate arrosto. Red wine served with the second course was Ripe Ai Sassi, Morellinodi Scansano. Dessert was delicious tiramisu delta casa.

My husband and I went here during our European honeymoon, and so far - it is the best place we've eaten at. Food was fresh, true italian and delicious. The homemade pasta and gnocchi melted in our mouths. Service was amazing and our waiter was so friendly. After refusing dessert as we were too full, he brought us over two free shots of on the house!! The place was quite romantic too - handing the male the menu with prices and the female a blank one - so if we were on a date I wouldn't know what he was spending! So cute. Loved it.
