I've been in a number of Italian restaurants in different Italian towns up and down from the North to the South but the food in this particular place stands above them all and the gap is pretty huge, I must admit. This is exactly what you expect from the meaning "Italian food" at its best!
All the food was very delicious, melting right in the mouth, and all you can do is to crave for more! Everything is made from fresh products with loving hands of a wonderful chief Paolo, who is, apart from all, a very nice person to talk to with perfect English (which is not ubiquitous in Italy). Amazing experience at Zafferano, highly recommended! A must in Vitorchiano!

We have been at Zafferano with my husband and friends. We had wonderful dinner at very authentic place with great food. After we sent our greetings to chief and he came to meet us. The chief is the owner of the restaurant - Paolo. Very friendly, in love with his job, and speaks very good English. Also, service was excellent. We totally recommend this place to everybody who will be in Vitorchiano!

We ate dinner at Zafferano on a very warm summer evening. We had received a recommendation and it was accurate in every way! The flavours in each dish were delicate and complex. We started with grilled prawns and asparagus which led to mains: risotto with asparagus and saffron and the other was gnocchi with prawns and zucchini. Fresh seasonal vegetables. The dessert was a creation - like a delightful gelato with texture from nuts. Buonisimo!

We appreciated the conversation with Paolo and Olga after the meal.

I was staying in Roma & become disappointed with the "tourist food" & crowds so we took a trip out to visit friends & explore Vitorchiano.

While exploring the area we stumbled across Zafferano. The flavor, quality and value of the meals was outstanding.

Fully recommend the chef & menu - be sure to save some room for the local beer & dessert.
