We walked to this place coming from Antiche Rime, a b&b nearby. What a surprise when you get seated in a blue lighted room but get to experience great local food from really gentle hosts. Thanks for the good food and nice time.

Fabulous. Really good value. Wine of the house excellent. Views amazing. Looks ropey from the outside but upstairs on the terrace it’s pretty good. Food and service excellent. Would thoroughly recommend for a lunchtime meal.

The views from the terrace are wonderful. Our meals were very good and moderately priced. The anti pasti was really the show stealer. I had pappardelle with wild boar sauce which was very good.
