Reviewed 12 April 2013

Beautiful décor. Friendly and efficient service. Superb food, accompanied by an excellent local red house wine.

I suggest keeping room for the dessert, especially oven-cooked toffee apple

“Not a good experience!”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

Unfortunately the staff has still a lot to learn about service. Whilst the owner took our orders, he abbandoned us at least three times to greet other customers and move tables! We had a small child with us and asked that his dish was served before all of us. After rather a long wait, we were served and the childs dish was the last to arrive! Ofcourse he wasn't interested in eating his as he had seen all the others! Another rather unpleasant sensation was a comi, hovering behind our shouldres, waiting to pounce on a plate if you dared to take your hands off the knife and fork! The linguini al pistacchio e limone was very good. Cotellette di abbacchio, were uneatable, in fact we sent them back. Do hope that if Franchino reads this, he will take note. I'm rather surprised as I know he has a long experience in catering.
