Came here on recommendation of place we were staying, which was collaborated by the Trip Advisor reviews.

There were 6 of us and we were right next to the open kitchen. I was totally transfixed with what was going on in the kitchen! The chef was an integral part of what was going on - he also waits tables, answers the phone etc!

We plumped for the hot and cold antipastis to start with at €16 euros per person. We were advised not to order the following courses until we finished that and could judge how full we were.

The antipastis were amazing and just kept coming - it was good advice as we decided that we could only eat one more course. Some had the pasta and some the secondi plate. The pasta was delicious - I had the tomato, oil and cheese pasta. One piece of advice - one of our party had the horse steak, which was excellent, but it was quite big and didn't come with veggies, so make sure you order separately.

Finished with the pannacotta, which was topped with caramelised figs, which was just amazing.

This place is not cheap - came to around €60 per person including the wine, but it is an experience I will not forget.

We arrived after 10pm after a long day of traveling and were treated to a lovely meal. The assorted meats and local vegetables to start were wonderful. Pasta ragu and pasta with sausage and mushrooms. Then spedino meats (skewered and grillled). Puff pastry with cream was amazing. Chocolate soufflé was more lava cake but otherwise very nice.

We arrived to a warm reception from the staff and the very impressive head chef. The antipasti was superb and all our main courses were excellent, and just the right size. Great restaurant

We were recommended this restaurant by the place we stayed at. The restaurant has been run by the same family for many years and the kitchen is open plan to the small basement restaurant that seats about 26 people. Anti-pasti is nice & keeps coming. Pasta is all homemade. Book well in advance!
