“Fish, fish, fish”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

We decided to return to Tuscania on a whim en route to the airport and wanted to eat somewhere in the old town. Il Rifugio fitted the bill and did fish - hard to find in this area of Italy. Unfortunately, we were the only customers so the atmosphere was a bit non-existent. We had a fish pasta and a huge plate of grilled seafood with a delicious white wine. Service was attentive. There are lots of tables so I hope that it is fuller in the evening.

“Loved this Food”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

A very cute little restaurant located on the main drag in Tuscania, with inside and outside dining. The food was very, very good and very reasonable to boot. I would visit again for the good service and food.

“Fresh fish in Tuscania”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We had a difficult time finding fish in Tuscania - lots of meats, pizza and pasta. Il Rifugio is on the main street and, even though it has a turistico menu, it advertises fresh fish. We decided to try it and were glad we did. The white fish was delicious as was the seafood pasta. The owner was training his daughter and service was extremely friendly. Food and win every reasonably priced at ~$35 dinner for two.
