After touring the monastery for 3 hours we popped into this little restaurant for lunch. Both the food and service was excellent! We only wished they had a better selection of wine by the glass. M

Beautiful Italian dinner! Service is very good. There are so many good dishes you don't know what to choose! Risotto is a very good choice. The Sauvignon Blanc is nice. Treat yourself and go here.

We enjoyed our diner, good prepared and well served. The prices were a bit high, the service a bit slowish, may be due to to many waiters around? Anyhow, absoluty a good restaurant to go for diner!

If you are of the means to visit this cloistered trattoria adjacent to the monastery where nuns once were cloistered, do, do! The dining provides privacy (quiet/romantic) as it is a series of small rooms carved out of the monastery where there is external access....More
