Easter lunch with large family. Good service. Fixed menu based on quality and on genuine fantasy rather than on quantity which is rather common in this area. Lonza and lasagna with asparagus and bacon to be highlighted. Most of the food was from local ingredients.

found this restaurant through Tripadvisor during the holidays. It's an incredible setting, in the middle of the countryside. Wouldn't have found it without the charming habitants of Deruta who jumped in their car to guide us there! Excellent service, great quality on a sublime terrace...we loved it!!! It's more a couples thing then family, but Italians love children anyway, so.....

Just got home from a most memorable meat. The food was presented in the most amazing way for each course and tasted wonderful. There are some really lovely choices, I had pigeon, and the portions are generous and very reasonably priced. The wine list is also great, we had wine by the glass which meant we could sample a couple...

My wife and I stayed three nights here while exploring Western Umbria. It is an excellent base from which to reach many wonderful hill towns, including Spoleto, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi and Montefalco. The rooms are very nice, but you should plan on having dinner here each evening. The younger brother is as talented a chef as we encountered during our...

We originally intended to visit for one night and stayed for four. A beautifully restored 17th century house on sculptured grounds amid the ancient hill towns of the Umbrian countryside.
