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 huge arched windows offer a glimpse English style nestled in the valley. Nestled in the room, a fireplace always lit by the familiar warmth and delight guests churning legs and delicious lamb chops, steaks and fillets of beef and other delicacies grilled in front of the customer in an atmosphere of times past. 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.
