“Do NOT miss this perfect home cooked meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

One of the best meals I've ever had, and at an incredibly reasonable price point. Our first night in Trevi, our group of 10 completely put ourselves in Marco's hands and asked him to give us a selection of his best recommendations. We had an excellent selection of antipasti, primi (pastas), desserts, and both house wines by the carafe and digestivos. We were travelling with tridents who had lived and worked in Italy for several years and were self-proclaimed food snobs and they too agreed that the meal was on their 'top te never' list.

Whenw e ordered our amaro, the bottles were left on the table, so we expected a hefty bill, but were shocked to discover that the total price per person was the same as a middling chain steakhouse back home in Texas.

Needless to say, we ate at Marco's almost every day for the rest of our stay. Some of our favorites included: potatoes with lard, Norcia ham, truffle omelettes, and baked cheese with honey; we also loved the wild boar pasta and the truffle pasta. Everything is homemade, and, as we learned after an extended stay, Marco and his family are truly invested in his business and in the town. It was wonderful meeting different members of the family around the square and seeing Marco in the bar off-duty.

A great place to eat and a relic of small-town Italian charm. We have told all our friends to visit Trevi and to make sure they do not miss this restaurant. The easy stop between Rome and Assissi is worth it for lunch or dinner on this square alone!

Thanks, Marco! (Review of approximately 7 visits in July 2013.)

We were driving on the highway and found a beautiful hill town called Trevi. End up in a restaurant with delicious Italian foods and excellent service.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

We liked this restaurant so much we went twice during our brief stay in Trevi. Marco and his staff are friendly and informative. The restaurant offers excellent local dishes with a menu specializing in seasonal and local ingredients. Hope I can eat there again someday soon!

“Absolutely charming and food that was out of this world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

It doesn't get any better than this - fabulous food at a great price, homemade everything! The proprietor, Marco Morosini, was as friendly, humble and helpful as anyone could ask - and justifiably proud of the food... Many of the recipes were his mother's who worked in the restaurant for almost 15 yrs. The food is just incredible, ingredients all from local producers - meats, cheese, vegetables, olive oil - all grown / raised /produced locally, nothing from "factory" producers.
We will return, and next time stay at his small hotel and explore his wonderful cuisine once again.
Bellisimo!
