It is low season here, so very little is open and we were so happy to find this place, which looked welcoming. We had a variety of delicious truffled pasta dish each and a half bottle of wine and they were all good. Amuse bouche served which was delicious. Service was great.

Waited until we ate in six different towns in Puglia/Basilicata before submitting reviews on the many restaurants we visited in the area. This was one of the best.
While the food was spectacular (more about that later) this place is open for much longer hours than most Italian restaurants and for disorganized folks that can be a godsend.
Spouse had an excellent pasta with porchini mushrooms and truffles (black) and I had cavitelli with cingale and tartufo which was superb as well.
Good service, highly recommended

This is a very relaxed and friendly restaurant. The cuttlefish gnocchi starter is really excellent, as is the cavatelli with wild boar. The tiramisu was very good, and the rainbow pannacotta, while a little startling in its technicolour brightness is also very good. We were comped some grappa at the end too.

3 of us ordered lobster at the suggestion of the waiter. I don't think there was even a teaspoon of the lobster. When asked by two of the waiters if it was good, both times I said no. One asked if I was serious and I said yes. We should have refused the meals that were the most expensive. Avoid this restaurant.

Fantastic. It had been a rainy day so finding Al Tartufo when we did was lucky. We were seated inside by the door. The service was impeccable. The menu was extensive enough to give us choice but not overwhelming. We ordered the octopus salad and the fava bean antipasti followed by the porcini pasta and carbonara. All food was faultless. We then ended the meal with a macchiato each.
