In a suburban location with the best intentions but with the forced desire to twist and improve the classics whilst creating little optimisation.

One of our best meals. Beautiful food and impeccable friendly service. The chef and her husband take such obvious pride in presenting wonderful local fresh food. The antipasto is a must!

Visited this lovely little restaurant that doesn't look like much from the outside. Food was great but the service was perfect. Felt like eating at someone's home even though they didn't speak much English. Fixed something of menu for the kids without hesitation.

The food was very different from what we expected. It is historically traditional Umbria food, beautifully presented and delicious. But considering that Laura is the chef with years of experience in this area what should we have expected?

Very cute little place. Being Americans we went on just as they opened. Staff is very friendly, even though they only speak a little English, we were able to communicate pretty well! A bit hard to find, as it's sandwiched into a bunch of apartment...More

The restaurant is the perfect place to eat and drink together, for lunch, Sundays and holydays, and for dinner, on unique place for an aperitif accompanied by appettizing preparation.Starting from 18,00 you can taste "torta al testo" bruschette, salumi and also inviting home made past and succulent meats.Smell of old dishes, typical cuisine of the traditional territory.Unmistakable tastes accompanied by a well-stocked wine bar all served in a comfortable and welcoming environment, with a relaxing outdoor space.The right place to spend pleasant moments all to "taste".
