Five years ago, we dined at L'Occhiano, and my husband and I have looked forward to our return! Finally, we returned with friends. As before, Angela welcomed us as friends and prepared a delicious dinner. We enjoyed appetizers, fusilli, dessert, wine, and homemade liqueurs. We...thoroughly enjoyed our meal at L'Occhiano and our time with Angela!More

We went for lunch on a Wednesday and were the only diners. Arrived a bit early. No menu just excellent no frills food: buffalo mozzarella, a bean and spinach spread, a rustic eggplant/cheese/tomato "lasagnanetti", fusilli con rage and assorted cookies with a nice house red....The view and the cook and staff (her father?) enriched the experience.More

We had dinner at this local Italian restaurant. The pasta was very delicious. Served with good red wine. We arrived an hour too early, but it was worth the wait. The restaurant opens at 19.30.

It was 3 of us, we had Antipasto and Fusilli al ragù. Everything was absolutely delicious: from a refreshing caponata to the spicy liqueur. The view was breathtaking. If you wanna escape from the city, relax and eat tasty local food this is the right...place. Grazie mille.More

Food was delicious: an assortment of antipasti, good wine, the town's famous Fussili pasta, salad and sausage, steak, desserts, and post-meal liquor (a delicious variety of homemade options!). We came here both nights while in Felitto. It is better to call ahead of time so...the chef can prepare enough ingredients, since the food is fresh. Gino was our server and Angela was the chef. Both incredibly kind and gracious people. Angela took the time to welcome us to Felitto. She shared stories with us in Italian and treated us like family. Very sweet woman. Gino was very friendly and accommodating. The view is incredible. You can sit outside and see the majestic mountain and the sleepy town surrounding you since L'Occhiano sits higher up on the hill. Highly recommended!More

After a morning kayaking and swimming in the nearby chalk gorge we decided to check this place out for lunch as one of the few restaurants in/near Felitto. We were a bit sceptical as we arrived, it was quite far out of town and there...was no one else there but we thought for somewhere to survive this far out - it must be good! They didn't speak English but it was quite refreshing to find somewhere that didn't cater for tourists. We were told what the lunch menu was - antipasti followed by fusilli felitto. The antipasti was amazing, completely different from the usual and the plates kept coming, then we were shown how they make the fusilli which was served with a simple but delicious tomato sauce. We were given frutti di bosco liquer afterwards. It was the authentic homemade italian food that we had been looking for on our honeymoon - and the bill came to 25euros, we would have paid a lot more!More

We were staying in Felitto and because it was not yet high season, it was not easy to find a restaurant when we arrived. Thankfully, our host at rifugio del calore knew what to do and called Angela from l'Occhiano. Angela was just cooking the...famous fusilli with ragu and we could join. We were relieved we found dinner and our expectations were minimal. This would explain why we were a little ecstatic when Gino arrived with antipasti that tasted so fresh and pure. We got fresh cheese, prosciutto, salami and then he arrived with melanzana, zuchini, and a hot cheese dish. We ate this in Italy before but here you could taste this was fresh from the field (some vegetables were preserved or pickeled on the farm). We ordered a young wine that went great with the antipasti because of the sparkling freshness. The main dish - the ragu - was extraordinary... The pasta was as fresh as it gets and since we spoke very little Italian, Angela showed us how she makes it. We ended our meal with a little Figo, a liquor produced from their own fig trees. After this, we were in seventh heaven. Was it the wine, was it the hungry and desperate feeling when we arrived? Maybe. But it was definitely one of our best and purest eating experiences in Italy. Just try it to get what I'm saying here. The hospitality of Angela and Gino is a great plus. They gave us a map of the area and explained what we needed to see in the area. A big thank you!More

We came to this beautiful place a few hours before dinner-time, but was welcomed in a very friendly way. The landscape and the atmosphere made us feel we were in an Italian version of the film "Mamma Mia". We sat outside looking at the great...view, waiting to see what would be brought to us as starters. It was all really tasty. The fusilli was the best pasta we had in Italy this time. We were also very happy to talk with the owner about how to make the different dishes. Our Italian is very poor, but we had a really nice conversation with the owner. The bill was a pleasant surprise, and we will definately go back if we come to the area again.More

During a 4-night stay in Felitto, my husband and I ate here 3 times and had a brief lesson in making fusilli! Even with my limited Italian language skills, we were able to communicate and enjoy our meals there. All who work here are very...kind. The food was delicious, and we found the prices to be very reasonable. Grazie a Angela!More

We stopped at this idyllic restaurant on the way to Gole el Galore in July 2013. This little gem served the best lunch we had in Italy. There was no menu to choose from but we explained that we are vegetarian and the chef made...us at least 6 different dishes which were each exceptionally tasty! The homemade fresh pasta with courgette flowers was unforgettable. As a little treat they served us some sweet deserts and we tasted the home made fig liquor. Our little stop turned into 2 hours as we couldn't get enough of this beautiful place with its great scenery and lovely food. Highly recommended!!!More
