One of many restaurants in Volltera to choose from but this one had a good pasta menu. Three of us had three different pastas all were good without being great. Nice salad and desserts served by friendly staff.

We ate here as it was recommended by the hotel for fish. It was busy and the staff were very welcoming. We had the fish pasta with olive and tomato, which was excellent, and the calamari with pasta.

We had lunch at Ombra della Sera. The prices are slightly higher than other restaurants in town, however the food and service are consistent with the prices. Local seasonal dishes abound, leave room for desert.

Set just beside a small church in shaded spot on warm day this restaurant served up both the freshest seafood spaghetti and warm hospitality we have come to experience in these small medieval villages. Also great place to watch the world go by.

The owner made us feel very welcome. The pasta and rabbit was really taste. So fair the only negative it was the fact we ordered 2 glasses of wine what supposed to cost €10.00, but we ended up paying €20.00. As the staff was really...More
