What a great spot! Amazing service great food and great hospitality. Local food and local wine on the menu, portions are big so you might think before you order a whole meal! Highly recommended

Feel right at home, like you're part of a larger family and eat food cooked with love and quality attention. It was wonderful. Bigoli al aglio, olio, peperoncino, fettucine ai funghi, trota, la tagliata, and a steak, grilled vegetables and a sublime home-cooked dessert... quality eating at affordable prices. You can't go wrong. Most importantly, it's a meal worth eating!... More

For our visit to Italy in July, we arranged for a cooking class with Patrick, the owner/chef. We had a wonderful experience making tagliatelle, ragu, tiramisu, and tortelli. We worked for 3 1/2 hours then got to eat what we made. Excellent. We were able to recreate the meal for friends back home in Boston. Memorable day.

Cycled here for an evening meal with my partner. Luckily we arrived just after opening time as this place is very popular. We each had a delicious fillet steak, and followed it with tiramisu / raspberry tart - both excellent. The house red was fantastic value and very easy to drink. We would visit again.

Loved the place - out in the middle of nowhere, so a car is required. Food was great, but took forever to arrive. Only 2 waitresses for the entire restaurant. But we figured, OK, we're in Italy....what's the rush? But 3 hours is a LONG time anywhere. The best part is the chef on the grill at front door -... More

Local Osteria with friendly staff and local dishes. Out on the countryside it is - and you need a car to get there regardless where you stay. We had Garda trout, excellent grilled veggies and steak grilled to perfection. Excellent local wine based on the merlot grape.

We'd seen the signs for this place walking from our hotel just round the corner. Not much more than a big old house with lots of seats outside has been made into an authentic Italian restaurant. Good food choice, well cooked and presented. We had 3 courses, coffee, local Spumante- all for E109, which I thought was good. You better... More
