We walked in cold, because it looked “pretty good” from outside. Wrong. Superb! Excellent food, beautifully prepared and presented. We were especially delighted by the host’s unexpected, very good English, which added an extra treat, since he was able to explain the dishes and wines....More

We had a pasta lunch after walking the gorge. A larger lunch was tempting. No problem getting a table. Friendly service, delicious food. A very reasonably-priced bottle of Pecorino was delicious. Would definitely go back and plan to have a much bigger meal.
