Location is nice and modern. Food wasn't good or fresh. It's an Agriturismo but I'm sure they don't produce any kind of vegetables, oil or wine. Staff? Not sure they have, the service was too slow!! In the end we overpaid for a bad cous...More

Amazing dinner, with huge selection of appetisers. Struggled after so go with a hungry stomach. Pasta followed but passed on main and desert. All locally sourced and cooked onsite. Pasta looked handmade. Tasted great. Had wine and coffees and all came to less than 40...More

We stayed in Vignacastrisi for a week in early/mid July and visited both agriturismos as they were both within walking distance of the Palazzo where we were staying. For food I preferred the other agritusismo although my husband liked L'Aia because of the ambience. To...More
