The food is very authentic,... More

I came here the second night of visit in this small tiny town. I was not expecting anything special, I picked the restaurant based on the location: not too far since I don't have a car. Well, dinner was outstanding. I had fish which I found out to be their specialty. I loved it. The second pleasant surprise was the... More

This place was recommended to us by our B&B and what a treat it was, it took some finding, but I get the feeling nothing in the area is easy to find!

Hidden, and a secret mostly to the locals, the owners (a couple) are always on the floor working while grandma collects the money.

The food was fresh and spectacular, from the fresh artichoke and walnut salad, the risotto with white asparagus and through to the tender and tasty very rare beef. Service was excellent and efficient, and it cost no more than a couple of average pizzas downtown. Worth the very short drive out of town. The farmhouse atmosphere added to the enjoyment.

I simply love this place! I ate here many times, included the dinner for my graduation. The menu offers always typical dishes with regional and fresh ingredients. the staff is kind and smiling. Dishes are rich and the price/quality ratio is very high. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
