Absolutely delicious home-made Italian dishes with excellent service! We enjoyed a variety of salads, wild boar, the server (one of the family members) recommended a couple of house specialty pastas and made up separate combination plates for each of us. Truly a hidden gem!

We visited the caves and then went to Da Maria for lunch. The service was excellent as was the food. I enjoyed wild boar and my wife was quite pleased with here pasta with eggplant. Highly recommended.

Excellent homemade food with local ingredients. Excellent service and ambience, too. Was taken there by a friend who grew up in the area. Homemade pasta with truffle slices, not just bits of truffle. Jim H.
