I love this place. They produce what they serve and it's great simple nutritional cuisine. Served on benches with love and good humor! If you can make it past the starter your amazing! If you make it for dessert your in for a treat ! Try panacotta with fruits from the forest !!

We go to this restaurant one or twice a month. The food is traditional Italian and the quality is consistent. The mixed antipasti are homemade and always delicious. You get a full meal for about €20 pp. Great view of the Lake of Albano. Kids' friendly too.

food was really good....especially the mixed grill. All very reasonably priced....pint bottles of Nastro Azzuro for around 3 euros. Good service.

Great food, great beer. Very informal, noisy, busy with locals. I suspect this might be the italian equivalent of a greasy spoon, only with great beer and fantastic food. Staff great and very friendly. Very understanding of lack of language skills.

Typically we only found this place on our penultimate day by the lake. That said we popped back on our final day before we left because it's so good. It has an authentic lunch menu which is simple food but extremely tasty. Their Porkette is delicious. On trip advisor it states that their costs are £££ but I'd say it's... More

Went with friends on a Friday evening to sample some authentic Roman style food. This is a more informal style of dining and probably because we arrived late we were in a section where there were longer tables and benches. While this is common in fraschetta I would have preferred a seat with a back to it. Our Italian friends... More

A long outdoor terrace (with a roof) with tables covered with paper, paper napkins, and your bread given to you in white bags ... This is a more restaurant-y version of the traditional osteria partaking of local porchetta, the rosemary-seasoned roast (huge) pig. They do a splendid traditional antipasto--roast eggplant, mushrooms, yellow and red peppers, a slice of omelette, onions... More
