This is one of my favourite restaurants. Pricey but the food is amazing, one Michelin star. Small and cosy and a nice variety on the menu. Their fois gras is to die for!

We always go to Locanda Orico for celebrating birthday dinner or some other special occasion. The food is just excellent (but pricy) and of best quality. Half formal atmosphere, you do not go there just for a quick meal, its more a place to enjoy...More
