Very enjoyable evening, great food, friendly waitress/owner, interesting artifacts on the walls giving the place a warm old-time feeling.

we stayed one night in Tarquinia (had to see the tombs), and ask the aldy in the B&B where we could go for dinner. She recommended this restaurant, and we went to have a look, then decided to look a bit further, but finally returned to the place. Am I glad that we had dinner here! The starter (mixed antipasti) was excellent and the one-person portion can serve 2. The wine - local - was a very pleasant surprise, and it accompanied our main course very well (try the tagliata di manzo con tartufo). Since there was still some left, they decided to offer us a kind of sweet bread, "to finish the wine". The staff were very kind, and apart from the mosquito bites (which we only dicovered the day after), this was one of the best places where we had dinner on our holidays in Italy. The bill was another pleasant surprise, try this in Belgium and you'll pay 50% more, for less divine food. Strongly recommended (but not very easy to find, I'm afraid)

The food was good and 'original'. It is located in a quiet place and very cozy inside. The toilet is clean and 'homy'. The wine is original from Tarquinia and taste very good.
