Silvano presents each of the twelve courses on his menu with such enthusiasm one is caught up in the story of the contents.I expected to be stuffed after all those dishes but not at all. In holiday eating this is the last night of the proms.

This is not just a meal but a culinary education and performance. Don't eat lunch beforehand if going for dinner! Brilliant selection of marvellous food, all at very good value.

We had an excellent meal last night at this atmospheric restaurant in the ancient hamlet of Castello di Vestignano. The restaurant is small but perfectly formed! Silvano is a great host who has obviously researched his subject well. His mother has been a source of inspiration for many of the dishes and also helps him in the kitchen.

We have had 'taster menus' and have often felt uncomfortably full and vowed never to do it again but ... after 12 plates we felt comfortable and satisfied rather than bloated and reaching for the indigestion tablets :)

It's a bit of a schlep but we stayed in a b&b rather than drive home. Would we go again? Oh yes.

This is not just a visit to a restaurant , but a whole experience ! We booked on a windy evening as we wanted to try something new in this lovely area.
Road to the tiny town is indeed a bit a search, and not easy to get rid of your car when you get there, but the town is that small that you can't miss.
Unique setting, in an old mill with only a few tables. Every of the 12 dishes is delicious, and explained by the chef (with a little story of how it is made or what products are used) No complex menus or wine list, honoust and delicious house wine and food for only 30!
A must if you are in the neighborhood !

Our 4th visit to this unique location and we never fail to be impressed by the quality of the food. Owner Silvano's passionate descriptions reflect the love that goes into preparing these traditional tastes of the region's history. Whilst not necessarily advocating visiting while a magnitude 6.1 earthquake happens barely 15km away, it certainly didn't makes us think of leaving after just 6 plates and the next 6 were equally delicious. The menu is set but vegetarians and vegans are willingly and competently catered for.
