We had a dinner with 2 courses and dessert with coffee. The food was delicious, perfectly spiced. Homemade pasta- Mine was with basil pesto and hubby had a'la bolognese. For second course we had caperese salad and porchetta with fries( huge portion). Dessert consisted of home baked cantuccini with amaretto and tiramisu. Everything was so delicious and you didn't have that heavy feeling afterwards. The owners were really nice and try to explain in simple English what was on the menu. We paid only 50 euros for dinner for 2 with 1l of white wine and beer.
Great experience. We will definitely return for more

Could not fault the service and the host was very nice. The food was OK but not really restaurant quality.

An amazing dining experience! Despite being situated inside part of a big complex which was a castle, this is a really tiny restaurant, seating only about 12 diners - it's like having been invited to dinner at the kitchen table.
Although it's like an extension of home cooking, the food is terrific and innovative. We started with two variations of frittata made with flowers - one with acacia & one with ginestra, very subtle flavours. Then tortellini in brodo, followed by ravioli in sauce. After that was the most delicious lamb with jacket potatoes, followed by ice cream with panna. This was all accompanied by extremely good local wine, finishing with grappa and limoncello.
It was ridiculously cheap, but what made the evening (apart from the meal itself) was the setting and the hosts. Massimo is a real character and his wife Mara is lovely. I enjoyed it very much and would love to go back there again.

We had possibly the best pasta of our trip here, a simple but absolutely delicious fresh tagliatelle with meat sauce. I can't understand the other reviews about being ripped off, we felt as though we had underpaid as we paid €10 each for a plate of pasta, lots of wine and a large bottle of water. The owner was very kind and welcoming. It felt like eating in someone's kitchen, but in a good way! Definitely worth a visit.
