We were brought to this location by our weekend tour guide, for an evening meal on a Friday. It was an unbelievable meal, and seemed endless. The food just kept coming, and more than we were able to eat: 1) assorted antipasti, 2) olive and rabbit bruschetta, 3) a pasta and bean soup, 4) grilled zucchini with a very tasty pesto, 5) pumpkin and farro side dish, 6) crepes with ricotta, 7) grilled lamb with a side of cucumbers with mint, 8) lamb liver, 9) torta dolci and espresso to finish. The wine was separate, and it was only 4 euros for a large pitcher. This is definitely a place to go if you want a farm to table dinner focused on the unique food of the region. You do not have to be staying at this place to eat here. There is absolutely no wireless phone signal for Internet, and no wifi, but who needs it for the few hours it takes to eat.
