Top quality food and service. My vegetarian wife and two children were all extremely satisfied. My filet of beef was cooked perfectly medium rare and their local shaved truffles were amazing.

Had a great steak with black truffles, and my husband had the prawns with a pasta main dish. ALL were very good.

We ate here twice. We were lucky to be here at the first day of porcini mushroom harvest and had incredible pasta with porcini. A delightful appetizer is eggs with truffles. The waiter was highly knowledgeable about the wine and made excellent recommendation for pairing with the food choices.

Nice food, but too fussy. Not my thing, but worth a go. Simple italian food is not their style. Clean and smart surroundings, attentive staff, confortable, but,not enough to bring me back, sorry.
