Our first time in the area and searched trip advisor to feed our hungry brood (ten of us). This restaurant welcomed us with open arms and even though there was a language barrier we communicated effectively because the food was so delicious. We ordered right off the menu and it was like a gourmet restaurant with Chili's prices!!! After a long day of sightseeing this restaurant became our resting place for almost three hours, by our choice of course, and it was the best meal ever. We plan to go back at least once a year even though it is two hours away. The staff of extremely hospital and we shared a love of people closing the place down after lunch. The kids even enjoyed the food - which is rare for six kids to enjoy such an exquisite cuisine.

I have dined to this restaurant twice in the past year and the food we had was simply delicious.
From the Starter (it is a must) to the main courses the food was simply incredible.
If you are a food Lover and you want to try the famous Truffle of the Apennines, this is the place to go.
The food is freshly made and this can slow down a bit the service, the Host "Angela" is simply exquisite, very nice and polite, always willing to help in the choice of the food and the Wine.
The wine Cellar is in one of the backroom area, where you can go and choose the wine you want, careful with the choice because some of the "reds" are very strong(14.5%) but I guess if you go there to eat rich food , you need to wash it down with a strong bottle.
In the starter you can try the famous Pickled Apple or the "lonzino Meat" with walnut and truffle.
The mains are various, I suggest to pick up at least a couple of "pastas dishes and share it ,so you can try different sauces like "gnoccehtti" with Cicory, cured pancetta and Dolcelatte, or Paccheri with truffle sauce and walnut.
The roasted mix of meat is a big portion that could easily be shared between two diners.
For dessert I recommend the dry cookies with truffles and also the strawberry cheese cake.
I really recommend the restaurant that is located on the top of the hill, so lady careful when wearing high heel, maybe a nice pair of trainer would do .

We found this delightful restaurant by accident. You may have to ask someone to point the restaurant out to you as it may be hard to find but a visit to the town is a great experience too because it has a good view and is interesting. It sits on an extinct volcano. We asked a local resident, named Felice, meaning "happy", where we could eat in town and he took us on foot to find the restaurant. The restaurant is ran by a couple and everything we had was delicious. The interior is very inviting and cozy. We had spinach pasta with ricotta, veal and tomato cream sauce, pepper steak, veal marsala, biddine with blackberries and a great red wine. The prices are reasonable and the service great. For truly family prepared meal of excellent quality and welcoming atmosphere this can't be beat.
