Description: Those looking for a restaurant in St. Peter, in Arlù will find a pleasant and familiar atmosphere where you can taste lunches and dinners made with natural ingredients, with an excellent balance between quality and price. From over fifty years we welcome tourists and lovers of good food in an unpretentious atmosphere, furnished with style and elegance. In the kitchen we favor seasonal raw materials and this guarantees freshness and digestibility to our dishes, from meat to fish passing through appetizers and desserts. Maximum attention is paid to the preparation of homemade biscuits, bread, cakes and pasta. To all this is added the kindness of a harmonious staff, composed of the members of a family that for a generarions has been handed down the craft of the restaurateur. Traditional cuisine and Mediterranean atmosphere, but also warmth and affection worthy of the italian culture. We are open for lunch and dinner. Choose the comfort and the charm of a restaurant a few steps from St. Peter. See you there!

“Below average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

The food was below average with the price that they charged. Coz we ordered some pasta but one of the pasta was too salty to eat. Also, the service was not too friendly.

“Good food, but little portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

We attended this restaurant, because it was really close to our apartment. The food was OK even a little bit more than OK, but we were disappointed by small portions. We ordered 2 salads (Caprese and Rughetta 9 euro each), 2 escalopes (16 euro each) and 2 cappuccino (6 euro). So we spent 56 euro here, but when we leave we were far from full, nevertheless the food was good, except Rughetta salad. It was just pile of rucola with a little bit walnut and pear on the top(2nd photo). The tastiest part of our lunch was bread.

Bottom line: Good restaurant, but a little bit overpriced, because of small portions you should to spend more to leave with full stomach than in other restaurants.

Final tip: Don't use tables outside owing to boulders on the street they quite unstable, so I should hold our table with my foot.

“wonderful find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

After a long morning of crowds at the Vatican, this place was a lovely find!! Simple, elegant, our lunch was excellent. The ambiance is also wonderful. You have to pass about five other restaurants before getting to this one but keep walking...this is where you'll want to stop! A sneak peak at the kitchen and it was IMMACULATE and the cook was Italian....spotless, lovely, not terribly expensive and "just right" for a little lunch before more site seeing.

“Authentic Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Found this restaurant in my DK Eyewitness Travel Guide. It is small and run by a husband and wife team. The food and service was excellent. The wine was even better.
