Osteria La Vecchia Fornace was recommended to us from Villa Petrolo where we were having our destination wedding. Lucia was excellent in responding to my emails to request a dinner for about 40 guests a few nights before our wedding and providing a great set menu. The food was absolutely delicious and amazing.
