This family ran restaurant has been around since the 1920s, a very personal approach from the owner(s). This is a restaurant with a lot of old style decoration and interior but all in a very positive way. Food is good with antipasti, primi and secondi...More

This place was full when we went on a Sunday afternoon. We were surprised as the town was sooo quiet. But it didn't take us long to realise the reason. The food was just amazing. We ordered the pasta with veal ragu (17 EUR) and...More

This restaurant is really unique, if it is the right time of the year you should plan on eating outside under a large draped over area. I had an excellent meal topped off with a totally unique desert, Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Balsamic Vinegar!...More

Known to be a family-run traditional location, the restaurant promotes a quite short and boaring menu, flat and unsatisfactory. Personnel not very hospitable. Not suitable for people-on-the-go. No business cards accepted.

Perfect lunch, if a little too much meat chosen, but this is the place for beef. Courtesy antipasto of small soft white cheese and bruschetta; carne crudo (tartare like); lasagne; fruit with pastry. Red sparkling Lambrusco. True taste of the region and the family's fare.

Just visited friends and discovered a place that brings back the real Italian food and atmosphere that I knew in 1999-2000.

We came here recommended by a great friend from Rome. The tortellini was perfectly cooked and an antipasto sent out by the kitchen was fabulous. The highlight though was the grilled steaks by master chef and host Franco. With his cleaver he literally chopped the...More
