Known for our preparation of grilled meats, recommend, Leg, shoulders and ribs from lambs milk, and cut fillets of beef, skewers and Rostelle, accompanied by seasonal vegetables and fried potatoes fresh peeled from us.

The outer room where you can have lunch outdoors admiring a magical landscape, breathing the air of mantagna, and a dinner by candlelight in a magical atmosphere, listening occasionally singing frogs in the creek below. Restaurant with rustic and elegant
