Solid place for dinner especially if you love meat. The lamb ,steaks all perfectly grilled. It also passed my test if a restaurant is sitting empty its usually not going to end well. This place was hopping we ended up eating here a few times during our stay.

We had a family holiday visit here. From the outside it is not much to write home about. However it is one of the nicest places I've ever eaten in. Bruscetta is wonderful. Antipasti are fantastic.

In Italy, as I suppose everywhere, truck drivers know where to go for a good, not pricy meal, so spot where they are parked and follow them! This restaurant is an example, Good quality meat very near to highway, reasonably priced. Service is friendly and simple. Very good steaks cooked in front of you, as well pasta and side dishes

Fantastic little place very popular with the locals, specialising in steaks, which are done the traditional way (look out for the "tagliata" which is Italian for sliced steak). Service is a little slow but well worth the wait

I suggest that this restaurant is the equivalent of a fine-dining, truck-stop. The food is fine - it is freshly prepared and tastes okay

Location is wonderful, seconds away from the Fabro turnoff on the A1. Used by commercial drivers. Predominantly a beef/lamb menu grilled over a wood fire. Lovely steaks, lamb also excellent. Pasta and salads also available of course! Prices very reasonable for good food served by delightful staff.
