This is still my first choice when visiting RE. The owner is very serviceminded and we love the kitchen and all his very good wines.

Il pozzo has been around for quite a number of years and it still is a safe bet. The owner is a grumpy wine expert who has dedicated himself to traditional dishes with a modern turn. Lovely atmosphere and setting in a cellar like ambience close to the theatres. If you are mobility challenged access is a bit tricky with... More

Food was delicious with decent prices. Restaurant is cozy with a nice décor. Waiter was not as fluent in English which resulted in miscommunication on orders (hence the 4 star).

It's not the cheapest place you will come across but with a menu packed with local specialities, superb wine and professional service it makes for a good night out.

It looks as if it needs some cleaning but it's never dirty inside, but something remembers you of a place which has been closed for long and needs some fresh air. Food is impeccable and the wine list too. Good grappas and exquisite dolcetti!

Ordered a fish from the specials without asking The price, at The end I found out it cost 23€. The fish was really average. Really really not worth half of The price! Ridiculous, not going back ever again.

I came to this restaurant 5 years ago and loved it. I enjoy the summer patio, the decor, the tables nestled between the treed courtyard and the view of a 'tower' nearby covered in vines. That is about where the pleasure ended for me. The food was average and the service was not up to par with the rest of... More

Staying Somewhere for the first time on a 2 week business trip is always exciting, especially when it comes to food. I was amazed of the quality of restaurants in a small town, balisimo. After eating there twice and a little debate, we agree that il Pozzo was the best. Great food, great wine, the cost is actually not much... More
