We had a great meal here, the atmosphere was excellent, very Italian and full of locals which I love. I had the pork which tasted amazing, all in all a very good evening, reasonably priced with good menu choice and great ambience. We will certainly be going back.

Fantastic!
Where to begin?
The attention from owner, from the owner's wife, the food, the wine, the service, the atmosphere; all superb!
On our most recent trip to Italy, this was one of the most memorable meals.
Just put yourself in the hands of the owner, and slowly enjoy a beautiful experience.
This opinion comes from a person who has had more than just a few great culinary experiences in my life.

We dined as a family of two adults and 2 kids aged 3 and 5 years. Recommended by our VillaSestini proprietor.

We arrived 5 mins before dinner service but the older gentleman showed us a table nevertheless. We had a choice of outdoor garden setting or indoors. Since the evening was gradually becoming chilly we opted for a table inside. As we were early, we were the only table there which we were gratefu lespecially dining with 2 active toddlers.

Menu choices were compact, offering the restaurant specialties. There were at least 5 different choices of home made pasta. Girls ordered the ragu pasta,which was cooked al dente, and amains split into 2 plates for the girls. It was tasty,I couldn't help sneaking Ina mouthful!

My hubby and I shared an octopus carpaccio starter, again they obliged by splitting the dish into 2, which is welcoming since its quite a fine dining setting. Octopus was fresh and tender.

For mains I had the rabbit stew while hubby had the grilled sea bass. Both cooked to perfection with the nice plating. Never had a rabbit stew so fresh and tasty with an onion gratin on the side. We also had the home made (old recipe it claimed) apple cake for dessert - yum.

For drinks, hubby had the Casa Rosso 500ml and I had the Casa prosseco 500ml. Perfect accompaniment to a delightful meal. Will definitely return if we ran out of new restaurants to try.

You won't be disappointed. We paid Euro89 for our meal.

We drove twenty minutes from the place we were staying to find this restaurant upon a suggestion of a friend and it was really worth the ride.

The ambiance is lovely, a place out of time run by a lovely family.

Nothing fancy, no nouvelle, reinvented or revisited cuisine, rather good old recipes, top quality ingredients and a lot of history behind it all.

We really enjoyed our meal and the service. The steak, the best we've had in a very long time!
