My husband and I happened upon U Cian when we were looking for a place to eat and had a great dinner there. The decor and music made us feel a bit as though we were eating at an Italian restaurant in the U.S., but the staff and food were the real thing. We had no trouble finding vegetarian options...

We've went before. 5 years ago, and it was brilliant then. Even better now. The ambience and menu do not disappoint. The service was excellent too. A real gastronomic delight of fresh food and a lot of variety too.

I have been there for lunch with 3 friends on a Sunday by end July. The meal started with a glass of prosecco (good) and a small plate with ham and melon. As starter, we had stuffed mushrooms. Not bad at all but lacking some taste. With pepper from the peppermill and a couple of drops of lemon juice, they... More

Easy to miss, it is slightly elevated from the road, but really worth a visit. It is more stylish compare to the majority of the restaurants in the area, and is perfect location for a special event. A private table on the balcony, surrounded by roses will melt the hear of any women/ mother. The food is typical for the... More

We are not sure how "agriturismo" should be judged, we will just judge by how we ate - and we ate really well. The restaurant: set on the side of the road, easy to miss but also not if you watch the signs :) It was like entering someones house, but inside it is proper restaurant. It looks romantic, but...

this restaurant located on a farm on the highway outside Isolabona is truly outstanding. sevice, food, decor all just right. the rack of lamb was the finest, most tender, best prepared have had. all the dishes as well as their own rose wine were tops. can not recommend the restaurant too highly. they deserve international recognition.
