Had dinner there last night. Very ordinary food. We were a party of five and only one of us enjoyed their meal. Meatballs were dreadful. tasted like a sausage, not served with any pasta. The rigatoni with eggplant, garlic onions and tomato was very salty. No white wine available by the glass and only one red available by the glass... More

We had dinner at this restaurant. We started with a meat and cheese platter where the parmesan was so tasty and flavourful and the meat (prosciutto) very tender. As a main course I had zafron pasta with speck (some typical dry-cured ham). I hardly find words to describe the flavours but it was just like an explosion in my mouth!... More

The host Oliver is one of the few people in the region with a sense of humour. Unfortunately some of his compatriots don't appreciate this. His wife is a superb cook and every evening spent there is memorable. Speaks all sorts of languages and is dog friendly, at least in the summer when you can sit outside.

This restaurant is just beautiful inside and out...It is romantic and Italian Old School. The menu is a little dicey for the American palate, but I had a steak and it was excellent. The wine that I had was wonderful and I can't say enough about the spinach flan. It would be a great place for a romantic date.

My husband and I ate at the Osteria Santa Chiara last night and had a fabulous experience. The food was fantastic: the tagliatelle with white truffle were pasta perfection, really, amazingly good. Since at that point we knew we were onto something special, we continued with the truffle trip: eggs with truffle for me and tartar with truffle for him.... More
