After several years I got the chance to visit this place again, and it did not disappoint. My only issue at this visit was that I got too full too quickly. Awesome food, and wonderful service. At the end, for two persons, the bill came to 85 euros, this included starters, primi, secondi, caffe, digestivo, sparkling water, and wine (of... More

The food in this restaurant is excellent. It is top quality, but not top dollar. Unfortunately, for us, the menu was completely in Italian, but the owner and waitress tried their best to help us. So I cannot say the exact name of what we had, but my wife has a quinoa salad, and I had an appetizer which was... More

Small/medium sized restaurant in beautiful location. Food was very good, prices were reasonable (€10/pasta, €15/steak), wine was great (€20), and service was friendly. Would go back/recommend.

Nice venue. Beautiful view and lovely food. Personnel was very friendly and accommodating while ratio quality / cost pretty fair. The best pick was the lovely starter with scramble eggs with black truffle on top laying on a bed of dried parmesan cheese crust. To follow I had a lovely wild boar in a tomato and olives juice along potatoes... More

This is by far one of my favourite restaurants I have been to around the world. The food may appear rustic but the flavours packed in are fantastic. I particularly recommend any of the dishes with the wild boar (cinghiale). The pappardelle with the mushrooms and truffles is a particular favourite of other members of our party. We have been...

Amazingly good food with excellent service and a very comfortable atmosphere. Really enjoyed eating here and will go again, even if it is a two hour drive ! We went for lunch and had to stop ourselves having more, would love to have a full evening meal. The soup, the pasta the wild boar and the lamb were all delicious.

We came across this restaurant by chance whilst waiting to go to the Frasassi Caves - what a stroke of luck. The food is excellent with great quality ingredients and a very good wine list. Our only mistake was we should have gone to the caves first and then we could have relaxed and enjoyed a leisurely lunch. As it... More

Che cosa succede quando la tradizionale cucina toscana si incontra con quella marchigiana? Proveniente dalla Maremma, la famiglia che gestisce il locale ha saputo imporre, nel cuore delle Marche, piatti e tradizioni della cucina toscana, tanto simile a quella marchigiana per genuinità e semplicità e ricca di sapori e di profumi.In questo locale mangerai il cinghiale cucinato secondo le più rigorose ricette maremmmane ( alla cacciatora, specialità del locale, nel sugo sulle pappardelle o sulla polenta) per non parlare dell'ampia scelta dei funghi e dei tartufi , infine dei deliziosi dolci della casa. Tutto contornato da un ambiente intimo e raffinato. Ampia la carta dei vini.
