Just driving around and popped in here for lunch. What a joy! Many great comments on the food. I agree with all of them. I'll focus on the service.

I've been working in town for a month and eating out every night. So I have checked out most restaurants in town. This place is the best in town by a wide margin.

Been here again on a solo lunch and enjoyed the same fantastic traditional food and kind welcoming service by staff and management. It is by far the best place in the region for traditional local cuisine - do not miss castrato meat and grilled vegetables! Hope to be back soon!

I loved the special bread, the strozzapreti.and the tortellini in brodo. Also loved il filetto al pepe. I went with a friend twice and wanted to go yet another time, but we had no time. You need to follow directions to get there. It is country side. The also have a few rooms. the views from the restaurant are wonderful
