Giovanni is without doubt the most competent of restaurant owners that I have ever met, everything that arrives on your table is made by her, everything. The atmosphere is extremely relaxing, the tables are correctly spaced and the service is "out of this world"

I am not going to say anything else as I am concerned that I will no longer find space here, however should we ever find ourselves within 25 km's of her restaurant i would move heaven and earth to eat here.

Don't say that I didn't warn you all before.

Thank you for the good food and memories

Julian

This is truly a hidden gem for us. We have been going to this little town for many years now, eating at some of the better known places, but never heard about this place.Luckily a friend invited us for dinner.

The chef, Giovanna, must source the ingredients from somewhere special. Everything, from the culatello to the tagliata di manzo, was exquisite, and presented so very simply that the natural goodness of the food was evident in every mouthful. Every bite was a remembrance to how good Mother Earth can be to us. This is something we seem to be losing touch with in our daily lives, full of packaged foods and pre-prepared meals.

The unexpected surprise at the end of the meal was the mango sorbet made from Alphonso mangoes. These are simply the best mangoes one can ever have. If you have not eaten them, you do not know what you are missing. And as with all her other creations, Giovanna let the superior quality of the ingredients speak for themselves. I think I took the longest to finish this sorbet, savouring it till the last lick! These mangoes are seasonal, so forgive me if you are told that they are not available.

If you happen to be in this area, and wish to try the very best foods that Italy (and the world) can offer, find time for a luxurious meal here.
