It isn't often in Italy that you get something a bit more than traditional but this was it and it was fantastic, The dishes had a modern twist, were beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Service was charming. We will be back!

The food was both beautifully cooked and presented. The service was excellent and the wine list catered for all budgets. The desserts were a work of art. All in all it offers excellent value for money and is of a much higher standard than the majority of traditional restaurants in the area.

We were hoping to go to a favorite restaurant for lunch in the area to celebrate my husbands' birthday, but it was closed. I clicked the Trip Advisor App and found L'Antico Forziere, and we were on our way.
This is a beautiful place, up a gravel road, and the interior has been beautifully restored. The food is amazing, from the starters, to the dessert, we were in awe of the presentation, the taste, and the balance of flavors. The service was 5 star, without being pretentious or hovering.

We come to Italy every year, and discovered L'Antico Forziere on this trip. The only complaint we have is that we didn't discover it before now. Without question, this was one of the best meals we've had, EVER. We ate lunch here, and every dish was unique and delicious. The chef and her/ his staff are culinary artists. They used ingredients in creative ways, and we could find absolutely no fault with anything. Service was impeccable. And then, we have the desserts. Normally, I'm not much of a dessert person, but OMG. They were works of art (literally), and tasted even better. Don't miss this place, if you're within 150 km (or more).
