Great experience thanks to TripAdvisor! Fantastic host and great waitresses to start with. Great setting and above all the food was superb! We had the carpaccio and the poached egg with truffles. What a great start to the meal. The seafood gnocchi and beff with rucola and truffles were also excellent. Portions are also large so we ended up sharing... More

My wife and me had dinner over, food was delicious and the staff was pleasant and welcoming. Food had original touch and plating was very nice as well. Nice wine selection and desserts were fabulous. Highly recommended. Cheers.

This restaurant has a great collection of wines. The boss is so passionate to help you choose your right wine to accommodate your amazing meat. Also you have to taste pasta al tartufo it's simply amazing. Only downside is the environment, which is definitely not as great as the food.

We loved this restaurant not because of the meal. Of corse, it was fine, comparing the price for that. But wine experience was whole another level and the owner of the restaurant, and his knowledge about it - amazing. This is that kind of restaurant, where the owner comes to your table, help you to choose the right meal, give... More

Great location away from the crowds, friendly and knowledgeable staff - and 'Patron' - excellent food, especially the fish dishes - all at a reasonable price.

In a back yard off the street you will find this very good restaurant with an amazing wine list. Osteria La Contrada serves local dishes beautifully arranged. We had: burrata, pasta aglio e olio, gnocci with a generous serving of black truffles, tagliata and lamb chops. All in generous portions and very delicious. The service is excellent and knowledgable and... More

Stumbled across this restaurant in a square off the main square. First time we visited it it was warmish and sunny so we sat outside. Its a lovely quiet area to sit with not a lot of people passing so made eating very relaxing. The second time we ate there it was pouring with rain so we went inside. It... More

It's certainly a rarity when the owner of a restaurant, at the request of your concierge, literally goes out and and buys an ingredient that is off the menu for a dish about which you just inquired, as opposed to requested, in this case the bottarga of grey mullet. It is quite another when the Spaghetti alla bottarga that is... More

Great find. We were the only ones here who were not local. All courses were delicious and no problem sharing an appetizer and premier plate. Excellent wine selection and recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed.
