This restaurant is situated inside a 2000year-old roman monument, so the location is wonderful. Unfortunately, I had an unpleasant experience. The service was really bad: 1) we had to wait for a table even if we had a reservation; 2) we had to wait 20 minutes to have the menu list; 3) they forgot to bring us the wine list,... More

We return to this restaurant every time we visit Aosta. It is pleasant to sit outside if the weather is good and it is also comfortable and roomy inside, The food is good and the lunchtime menu is very reasonable.

We were there for dinner. The food was good but some other guests left the rest after long waiting.They even didn't got something to drink! Very disappointing, what a pity.

We went to this restaurant because of the Michelin western Italy guide, advising for the 28€ traditionnal menu. I have to say it was a joke, with a food with similar quality as a poor school restaurant. Everything tasted so so, the desert was terrible with totally green and dry peachs... Even for a 12€ menu I would have been... More

The wine was again recommended by the head waiter and again it was... More

Dined here in 2004 and we could only get in by our hotel booking for us it was excellent then.... Dined here again this September and am quite sure it's under different management and definitely not the same chef.... Was not impressed at all this time around...

From the pistacchio bread to the dessert, it was outstanding. I had crepes Valdostana (ham-filled crepes topped with a rich melted fontina sauce) and my husnand had mini octopus in... More

This restaurant is right near the Roman gate and the tourism office. We ate outside. The service was excellent as well as English and Italian we also noted the staff spoke french. The menu was slanted towards local food and what was available in the market at that time. Service was relatively quick and prices middle of the range. Well... More
