we arrived on a busy Sunday lunch without a booking and the restaurant was booked out. I noticed a small table in the kitchen and asked if we could eat there.

If you want to taste the real Ox here is the place. I live here and I suggest it. Carne cruda di bue, tagliata di vitellone/bue e torta di nocciole con zabaione: this should be your menu!

This was the right decision because it turned out that their bollito is really exceptional. You can select at the table the cuts you prefer or want... More

We were nine friends travelling from wineyard to wineyard, and were recommended to take a lunch at this restaurant. A really special experience. After a very delicious starter and the "obligatory" pasta, we were served from a trolley placed at our table. We could choose from all parts of an ox (not all parts were that tasty (!)), but all...
