It was a pity that I went here on the last night as I would have revisited for sure. The mid week activity was relatively busy and the service was excellent throughout. The owner came to our table explaining the specials of the day which outweighed the content of the menu. I had ravioli with tartufo shavings on top. To... More

In the summer, there a tables outside, and it's a lovely location to sit and have dinner - quiet, no traffic, beautiful surroundings. The menu is not extensive, but the... More

Our bicycle tour guide book recommended "Cavolo a Meranda" for dinner. It was splendid good. For antipasti we had among others anchovies with capers and Italian style garpacho soup. Reservation for dinner is needed, otherwise you will stay without dinner. Restaurant is not big. Wine selection is on shown on shelves and you can check it by yourself which wine... More

Stumbled upon this place looking for a restaurant for lunch. It was perfect. Small, family run, eclectic decor. Good food and atmosphere.

What a great find. You really need a town map so you can find it, but well worth the small effort. It was the best price and food I had on this tour as far as lunch was concerned. For 8 euros I had a pasta dish, salad bar and water!!! A wonderful assortment of choices on the salad bar... More
