The lunch we had at La Poventa was simple, yet delicious. As antipasti we got a perfect carpaccio with rocket salad and mellow pecorini cheese flakes. As main courses we had acquacotta and tagliatelle with meat sauce. Both dishes were excellent. Our desserts were pleasant variations of the classic dishes tiramisu and apple cake. The latter came attractively presented with two different chocolate sauces. The service was efficient and friendly.

This was a birthday meal,booked for 16. Nothing was too much trouble. Alcohol flowed, lots of courses of good food. Birthday cake thrown in. 4 hours later and a very reasonable bill. Will go again if I am within 1 hour's drive.

We ate here twice in one week. Very friendly staff indeed, food was really very good - particularly the spaghetti with truffles which was on special that week - and a great selection of wines for a very good price. Strongly recommended if you happen to be in Magliano! Carpaccio, steak tartare and various steak dishes were excellent.

We went here with some friends and were blown away by the quality of the food, wine and service. The Antepasti misto was especially good, as was the excellent homemade pasta. If you're in Magliano then it's a must!

We ended up here by accident after the restaurant our friends had intended to take us to was shut at lunchtime. How lucky we were! Our party of 8 had a full lunch with antipasti, first course, econd course, dessert and coffee, much wine and plentiful food and we were amazed how reasonable it was. Everything was delicious - the pasta was especially good and home made and the service was very friendly.
We have been on holiday for 3 weeks and this was the nicest meal we had by far and easily the most reasonably priced as well. Win - win!!
