“Rustic setting with fantastic home cooking”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Based on other good reviews we tried this on a Saturday evening during our hols, we were staying close by so easy to find. Quiet at first but soon filled up by 9pm and seemed to be mainly locals. Limited menu choices only on a board, however all of them were described and delivered with loving care and preparation by the friendly owners and their staff. Menu changes often according to seasonal products, we had rabbit and beef, after tasting wonderful Bresaola and risotto with zucchini and tiny fish roe. That may not sound delicious but believe me it exceeded my description here! We plan to return again before flying home. Try, you will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic meal at a reasonable price”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

My wife and I had duck and rabbit as main courses, both were the best meals we've had in the past three weeks of eating our way through Italy. The meals were innovative and full of flavour, the service was very friendly and the prices reasonable.

In addition there are some very good and reasonably priced Brunellos on the winelist.

Service was a bit slow but the great food more than compensated for this.

“Great food, great hospitality,”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

If, you are looking for warmth, genuine service, great ambiance and great food, Osteria Della Loda is a must. We have been in Italy three weeks and this was by far our best dining experience. I would recommend that you make reservations. Make sure to have wine by the fireplace.

Our local restaurant with a different menu every time we go. The food is first class in this family run restaurant, using local produce to a high standard.
