It is not a starred restaurant. Don't ask for seafood. It is an old, regional osteria on the mountains and traditional, local food has served since 50 years. Pasta is homemade, even pasta made using chestnuts flour (tipical of mountains area). They had amazing sauces...More

This is a real gem hidden away in Lavaggiorosso in the hills. A bit hard to find but this is what makes it special. Very friendly family run restaurant serving hearty villiage food that may well be the best meal you have on your travels....More
