We wanted a light lunch and were driving through whilst staying in the area saw this resturant so called in! It didn't look great from the outside but we decided to give it a try! The place was empty but the waiter( maybe owner) was welcoming Which was a good start! There were 3 of us and we each opted... More

We're staying in the area and so tried il buon sapore for dinner. We ordered the starter buffet and then grilled sausage & penne alla'arribbiata for mains. The food was pretty decent (the grilled sausage in particular). The main sticking point for us was that there was only one waitress on shift. As a result our plates were not cleared... More

My husband and i were staying in the area for a week. We accidentally ran into the place while looking for our accomodations and it looked cute but they were closed that day so we decided we would come back. Well, we did, and the waitress was lovely. She knew enough english to help us with the menu and give... More

Bar Restaurant offering honest well presented local food. The antipasto table has a good selection as a starter and the steak with truffle was melt in the mouth, you could cut it with a fork. One of the best I have had! Value

Having enjoyed Sunday lunch, we returned during the following week to eat at Il Buon Sapore. The menu was filled with interesting choices at fair prices, and the food was of good quality.

Excellent pasta lunch. My wife had the pork tortellini and I had the penne with spicy tomato sauce Both were excellent, 1/4 carafe of house white was good too, as was the aqua frizzante! It was our first meal having arrived in Italy so we were likely to be impressed by the pasta! San Rocco has a Coop supermarket too.

A family of 9, we ate here for an evening meal. Don't be put off by the decor (it was a bit warm inside too) they obviously like frogs! After 30 mins of being there, the place was packed and it's easy to see why, the food was great. There was only one waitress but she was quick & attentive.... More

Now, thats not a title I would give lightly, but when the wife and two teenage boys say it's their best ever pizza, it's a majority vote. Mine was exceptionally good, and I agreed it was in my top 10 ever, but I've had some great pizzas around the globe. The service was a tad slow, but we were sitting... More
