“Wow! Excellent meal & experience”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Top notch meal at a great price! The owner took the time to talk with us and was one of the nicest people we met in Italia. It's amazing that this restaurant serves such good food at a great value in this touristy town. I highly recommend!

“Very tasty, very friendly”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We've had a great time in Osteria La Pace. Both the home made pici (for some reason called spaghetti in the menu) and steak we've had were perfectly cooked. On top of that, we've been served by a fantastic, friendly waitress. Top notch place.

“Best tiramisu ever !”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Had lunch here last week and had the best tiramisu ever ! Before then I had the wild boar pasta dish and husband had steak, both were delicious. Our waitress was friendly and spoke very good English . Doesn't look much from the outside but would visit again if in the area.

“Delightful Experience”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We just returned home from a two-week tour with 10 other people. I'm not sure how Osteria La Pace was chosen, but we couldn't have been happier. The owners were wonderful, and the group let them decide what to serve. A fresh pasta with a light sauce with porcini mushrooms and wild boar morsels was exquisite, but everything they brought out far exceeded any reasonable expectations. They were clearly eager to show off their talents, and they succeeded in spades. It was, as the title makes clear, a thoroughly delightful experience and one to be remembered fondly for many years. Love to do it again.

“There are better places for pizza”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Based upon some good reviews from Tripadvisor we worked to find this restaurant. The first time we ate there, we were the only ones there. Still, the service was not great. We ordered pizza and a local bottle of wine. Both were reasonably good but not special. A few nights later, we were looking for a place to go with friends that was quiet, so we tried it again. This time the same pizza we had the previous time was terrible (burned crust). The waiter did not seem to understand English, so we ended up eating it because we were starved. I don't understand the positive reviews. We had better pizza at the Organic Pizza restaurant just off the square, and the atmosphere was nicer. Maybe the pasta dishes were better.
