if you are in this area is good restaurant to eat, but is no worth to go there just for this restaurant. Plates are "home" style , you ll find nothing special there if you eat every day italian dishes. And if you traveled already all Italy , comparing with others places this will be poor.

You are a long way from the glitter of the Riviera by the time you find La Vecchia Ostaia. But, if getting there is half the fun, enjoying the superb country cooking by momma completes the circle. Pastas are hand made, salads and other entrees are delicious. I had the specialty of the house, the braised rabbit. It was cooked to perfection. After dinner, the fun began. Be prepared to get a real bum bounce if you dare to dance with momma. All in all, a memorable dinner and experience.

Think of a place somebody that has been "Chef of the Year" in France goes to eat pasta, escaping from duty on his starred Michelin restaurant. That's how I got to La Vecchia Ostaia.
The father is by the door, the Mamma is in the kitchen and the son runs de salon. The menu barely comes, all you have to do is listen to what the son suggets you.
We were a group of four, had pulpo for entree, followed by four pastas and two desserts. After the work is done, Mamma Angela comes to the salon to talk to the costumers, sing, and even dance with one of my friends!
It really feels like home.
