This place has a snail in the slow food guide inviting us to have high expectations of the simple home cooking in offer. It delivers only in part. The pasta with broad beans is tasty but the ricotta ravioli in tomato sauce (possibly also with...More

Straightforward, unpretentious restaurant serving good local food at very good prices. Distinctive dishes that you won't find outside the region. Try one of the rabbit dishes.

This was by no means a fancy restaurant but we ate an excellent lunch for an extemely reasonable price.

Maybe the best ravioli in my life. Very good side dish (caponata), soup and second dish (lamb with potatoes). Quite decent house-wine. Excellent, tasty but gentle home made dessert (almond pudding) and liquor (allorino). Very cheap. Very polite and informative service.
