Nice cosy restaurant in the small Italian village of Staffolo. Try the super steak of 1kg :). Pasta's are great!

This restaurant was recommended by our landlord of the agriturismo in Apiro. Outside there is a small terrace with simple tables, which does not give the impression of high standards. But inside you thing you are in a castle! Lots of local people do eat in this great restaurant. Plenty of choices of genuine Italian food. We eat there twice and both times in a hurry because of a concert, so we choose pizza and one of the more expensive wines. Excellent quality for very low prices! Nice staff. And the only restaurant I have ever visited where they wanted to make the bill smaller because they would not give me change!!!

This place is fantastic. We have had a house in the region for the last 7 years or so and every time we visit we eat here multiple times. Myself and my husband love it so much that we decided to have our wedding lunch here last August. And by lunch I mean an incredible feast of antipasti, pasta courses, rabbit, pork, tagliata, desserts, all of the delicious wine and they even sent us on our way with a giant bottle of sambucca afterwards! The owners even organised a band to arrive half way through the meal as a surprise for us, as well as very kindly organising our wedding cake (made of cheeses!) All of our guests were amazed by the food. Alessio, Matteo, Mauro, Sauro and all of the team are so lovely and treat you like family. They work incredibly hard and it really shows, their food is outstanding. Everyone should visit this place!! xx

We had my daughters wedding feast here two weeks ago and the food and the service was great. The atmosphere was amazing and we even had a visit from a passing band & impromptu dancing! Thank you so much Alessio and team for a fantastic and memorable day ... It' was so special .
