We almost did not go here for dinner. We were unable to find the place where we had reservations, but found Dodoo's. We were very pleased that we got lost. Having dinner at Doddo's is more than just eating, it is also having a really fun time. Our server spoke some English and we had a few laughs trying to communicate with each other. The pasta was just wonderful! There were thoughts at our table about how rude is it to lick your plate, the sauces were that good. Dodoo is a wonderful host, he stopped at our table a couple of times even though he cannot speak English. He sent complimentary after dinner drinks and then as we were leaving, he brought us Limoncello. We went down the street with him to a new place he is opening and he gave each couple a bottle of their wine. The wine is made at a local co-op and it was good! We went back into the restaurant and took pictures with the cook, our server and Dodoo. What a fun evening, if in the area I'll definitely go back! If you are nearby,GO.

From the moment we walked in until we finally left, this was the most fun restaurant experience of our trip. Of course, the food was delicious and the local wine was tasty. This was Italy after all.

But what set this place apart was Doddo, the owner and our host for the evening. His enthusiastic greeting upon our arrival (without a reservation) made me think he mistook me for his favorite uncle. After our dinner, he treated us to limoncello and wine from his private stock. This was hospitality!

No dislikes. This gives what it offers, flavoursome, generous portions of local specialties, with an unusually good house wine that's actually homemade. Right off the main piazza of Urbania, and two people can have primi, secondi, a bottle of wine and coffee for well under 60E.

We visited this restaurant with my daughters host family so I know we received extra attention because the owner knew the host dad but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service was outstanding!

Studying Italian at a local school. Stopped here for a late lunch. Excellent food and service. The owner (Dodo) came by our table several times invited us to his home for a drink. The local house wine is good for 7 euro a bottle (750 ml). The pasta is top notch and the mixed meat grill is to die for. Will definitely go back!
