Roberto is an excellent chef and sommelier with true passion for slow cooking. His kindness and generosity are immediately apparent, adding to the experience. Make a reservation and enjoy an incredible three hour lunch.

Description
Open from noon to sunset, closed when I go shopping

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to my home.
Every morning I wake up happy to build a space of peace, balance and harmony to offer people who like to come to my Taverna.
I appreciate people for what they are willing to share of their minds and hearts. The visible sign of money makes very little impression on me.
Good manners are a key contributor to enjoy my daily life. I hold myself to a high standard and I do whatever I can to protect this space from negativity of bad manners.
I'm a countryside cuciniere (cook), whose only claim is to feed myself honestly. Home cooking is prepared and shared with those who like to sit at my table.
If you like what I do, tell the people you care about.
And if you do not, please tell me. I'm ready to hear your constructive feedback when expressed in-person. It helps me recognize my mistakes and work to reduce their number.
I consider criticism expressed at later dates, and worse if protected by the anonymity of a pseudonym, a destructive attitude, and I will not give the deriving negativity any chance to affect me.
I always offer people seated in my house my service and my smile.
To people content to savor authentic dishes, to sip sincere drinks and to gladly recognize the price of my loyalty to them, I also give my heart.
I appreciate your courtesy.
