Quiet setting beside a roaring stream. Excellent Italian meals. Seafood pasta and lasagna were both well done and portions were quite large. Sometimes they are unexpectedly not open so check first.

Il Pianista looks a bit suspect from the outside. Located right next to farm-worker housing, and down a short rocky path, one might be tempted to drive on by, but that would be a mistake. Guests should park on the shoulder of the road and...More
