We like to stop here when we are in the area and we have never been disappointed. The place is BUSY but the service is efficient, just what you need to get a bite when you are traveling.

The pappardelle with the wild board are delicious and very delicate. Good wine list to enjoy your steak. Vast selection of meat. The price is right for the quality. Enjoyed

Welcoming staff Good food based on meat and cheese (starters, pasta, soup and grilled or cooked meat). Right Price What else ? The take away service for cheese, meat and cold cuts. It's a safe place to have stop during a trip in Italy.

Other reviews say it well - it's a mix of truckers and families. Fantastic steak and pasta, great deserts and wine too. Don't take a vegetarian here for dinner! Don't be put off by the fact it's a truck stop - it's very friendly and fabulous food at a good price

Famous track drivers restaurant, and not only. Let them guide you but do not miss the thick costata grilled and the porcini mushrooms grilled. Excellent sorbet with rosemary, mint and ginger: bravo.
