This isn't the 5 star restaurant that some older reviews suggest.

Although the waiters, and owner, were friendly everything about it was average.

This is a simple affair down a quiet road in the middle of nowhere.

The drinks menu is very limited - no spirits, a couple of beers (in fairness the St Benoit was very good) and then soft drinks or wine.

But all three courses were frankly a little disappointing, with the pizza the most as we were hoping for crispy stone-baked thin crust Italian, and just got a greasy doughy very cheesy pizza like from a normal takeaway.

Nothing was particularly bad, but nothing was particularly good either.

We were looking for a good pizza restaurant. Our hotel told us we should go here for good pizza. The staff was really friendly. The Bread on the table was really tasty. As a starter we had the caprese. Perfect
Therafter we had 40cm pizza with the 2 of us. It was perfect as well.
The meals going to the other tables looked great as well. So we Will be coming back to try some other things from the menu.

A friend of us recommended this restaurant and it was more then good! Massimo and his daughter are very friendly and run a well trained and fast team that provide good service. They serve delicious local dishes in a fast pace. Overall a great experience and we'll make sure to visit this restaurant again when we are in the area.

This was an Agriturusmo on an industrial scale: heaving with locals in sequins and wedgy high-heels. ALL of whom seemed to be embraced by the staff. Plus many visitors, mostly holidaying Italians from Naples and the odd neglected and cross Brit from Chiswick. Quite slow service as it was so busy and many of the parties so huge - we could understand that. But this had the least good antipasti of anywhere we tried: a platter altogether of about six different things, quite nice but a bit pickled and ordinary compared to some other places. The pastas were fine but forgettable (OH rated my ravioli higher than I did) and the dolce wholly delicious but took an hour to arrive. The whole operation felt a touch over-rated and over-stretched. But still quite a fun evening and not expensive.
