This Osteria is hidden away in the side streets of this small village --it is next to the Roman Catholic Church. The menu is limited but superb.The staff are super friendly and helpful, one of them speaks good English and he was detailed to look after us which he did in 10/10 fashion. The owner acts as maitre d'hotel and is smiling and cheerful.The chef ,Davide, is a happy and helpful guy and his food is top class.Prices are reasonable given the good quality.A MUST VISIT eatery for anyone in the area.*****

A must try restaurant in the medieval historical area of this small village, similar in style and quality to "I Santi", with a little higher price for the meal. On the way and close to the monastery, Monte Vergine. I don't think that you could beat the quality of cuisine in any area of the world, absolutely lovely. Note that if you are on a low fat diet, this is not the place to eat though. However, if you would like to treat your last buds to the unique flavors of this area in Southern Italy, I don't think that you'll be disappointed. They offer a very nice anti-pasta (appetizers). They combine unique combinations of their local harvest like chestnuts, fruits of the season like pear, zucchini or pumpkin with the local cheeses, wild mushrooms, dried meats like salami or prosciutto. Then for main courses, they have great pastas and soups and local meats that are in season, such as their bio beef, pork, and possibly wild boar, if it is in season. They offer a superb wine list with a large wine cellar, one of the best in the area - but I've always just opted for their local wine in the area, Aglianico. Reservations are recommended, as it is very popular.

Restaurant is small and unique in its dishes and tastes.
We did receive an English menu that consisted of unique variety of Italian dishes.
Their wine list is very very long but they were kind enough to suggest to perfect wine to each dish!

Overall you'll get an Italian gourmet food with decent prices, good wine, very nice service, and desserts to die for :)

I you like to know what you are eating, it is maybe best to understand some Italian (like in the whole of Italy), but staff is very friendly and willing to explain in their slowest italian.

Not easy to reach it is worth it for sure to climb the nice hill of Ospitaletto to taste the nice and well prepared dishes of this restaurant. The ambience is very classy, they give you also something to put the bags of the women on, that is a real high level touch. The local is small, very cozy and clean and the service very nice. They offer local revisited dishes with fresh ingredients. Everything tasty, from the starters, to the first and second dishes to the Dessert, the tipical torrone revisited as Mousse di torrone, amazing!
