The food here is not only cooked perfectly, the favors were exquisite. Owned and operated by a husband and wife, it situated inside the inner walls of a fortified castle. If you are ever anywhere near San Leo or San Marino, you have to take the drive here for an experience of a lifetime.

We went there after reading all the reviews. We were staying on verucchio and went there for Sunday lunch. The place was packed. They had no space for lunch so we reserved for that night. Got there at 8 and sat downstairs in a room with no air conditioning and one fan. Very claustrophobic space. We ordered a plate of cheese some wine and then tagliatelle with truffles and a stuffed pasta with zucchini and nuts. We waited an hour for the pasta. They forgot the wine. The stuffed pasta was inedible and the tagliatelle with truffles was so greasy and oily I could only manage to finish half a plate My wife ate half of one shell and left the rat in the plate. The wait staff was pretty much invisible in our little cave room. Overall a terrible experience. Don't recommend

Wonderful food in wonderful environment. Seasonal products, especially truffles, if available, make the trip worthwhile.

We had the € 25 tasting menu. The amount was too much but the taste was realy great. At the beginning of the evening we got a lot of attention. Later when it was bussy this was quite less. Nevertheless this is my Italian dream. The people are nice and true. The food is prepared with love and passion. This you can taste. The food was absolutly fabulous. Worth much more than the price. If it was up to me I had dinner there every evening. And okay, the staff is a bit too bussy. But all for bringing a excelent meal with a hart for no. money at all.

Great 10 course meal for 25 euros. Wonderful service and a gorgeous view. Go hungry, or you won't be able to enjoy all the goodness. Highly recommend after a day of sky park adventures to work up an appetite.
