“Beware the final bill”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

Quirky places being a book shore, bar and restaurant - but really interesting service was a bit slow. The menu is written on a blackboard which is brought to the table, the food when it comes (it is certainly not a fast food place) is excellent.p the only downside was that when our bill came it was 25% more than the prices stated on the board. Asked but the waitress was really busy so in the end paid and left. That spoilt what would have been a good experience

“a lovely surprise”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

after a good swim in the lake we had chosen the Libreri'Osteria le Sorgenti to have dinner and were not disappointed. The ambiance is warm , relaxed and "special", one can feel the the owner lives her philosophy (Her restaurant is a bookstore, too and she sells lovely objects, too).
We ate in the garden at the end of two cool rooms"ex "cantine", no mosquitoes..! We asked for an organic white wine as an aperitif and continued with chicken curry, served with a delicious "ratatouille" . Both were tasty and light, we really enjoyed the place all the more as it doesn't attract hords of tourists but more locals or Romans, it seems.
Very good music on top of it, and an attentionate owner/waitress, what more could you ask ? One of our most enjoyable meals in Italy; And the bill was right (no "mistakes"..for once-happens so often in Italy, my unfortunate experience), and quite reasonable for the quality of the place, food and wine (less than 20 euros/pers)
We highly recommend it to couples or families and will come back if in Bolsena again.

“Limor and Ori”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

A very charming place with distinct personal touch and a nice courtyard. The food is great and unique from the typical menu you see in most of the places.
Its located in the old city ally's, they speak decent English and they also have wi-fi.
