The service was offhand even though the restaurant was less than half full. We had to wait a long time for our antipasti and then for our pizzas. The food, when it arrived, was okay. We would not return here.

After talking with some local folks, I learned that this place was rather low on the recommendation scale. I frankly don't understand why. The proprietor is friendly and helpful. He does not speak English, but he understood my pointing and gesturing well enough that we worked things out and he was attentive and even seemed to anticipate my requests. I tried a pizza with potatoes on it (scandalous, I know), but I couldn't believe how good it was. A week later while in the mountains I started thinking about it and had to drive back into town that night to order it again. The serving portions are huge, the meal affordable, and I was treated to a local after dinner drink gratis--it's the type of stuff that will clear the sinuses, not unlike grappa, but with a distinctive earthy flavor of a local wild root plant. Either the proprietor was trying to kill me or he was doing a great kindness by serving me some. I took it to be the latter, even though I could hardly finish the cordial glass pour. So, as far as I can tell, this is a mighty fine option for dining when you aren't looking to break the bank.

You go to a restaurant to eat good food. This restaurant does not deliver on that. We went there because all three that our hotel recommended had closed for holidays.
In other places in Italy 45 euros, for two, got us delightfully prepared gourmet food in great surroundings. Here we got gnocchi that seemed to be little better than hard nuggets in some tomato sauce - suspiciously like it came from a package and was heated. We craved a plate of grilled vegetables, but that only consisted of a couple of wafer thin vegetables flat on the plate - prepared earlier and served cold. The chips were from a frozen package. The mixed grill at 15 euros was also very disappointing. The pieces of meat were small - 2 kebabs were ridiculous; the pieces of meat were so tiny that it is hard to believe you could get the sticks through. Finally the house white wine was very cheap, and tasted it too. Very rarely do we write a bad review, but this restaurant was way over-priced. This town seems to close too many good reatauants in Oct. and it is a struggle to find one.

Looks like a nice little place but food was disappointing. I could have made it better at home. The best thing was the Bruschetta we got at the start and the wine.
