If you like meat, preferably raw, this is a great local place. Lovely cuts of meat, cooked or undercooked various ways, plus a good variety of local antipasti and wines. Do ask for their own salami. It's bright, noisy, very friendly and excellent value.

We eventually found this restaurant and decided to eat there one evening. This is definitely a family run affair with lots of locals eating in there as well-always a good sign I suppose. There was a menu with limited English but it didn't matter. I chose three courses but I didn't really know what they were. However they were all... More

Such a warm and friendly welcome awaits you at this superb restaurant. It is as if you are being invited into their home to join in with the family. The food is simply delicious. Every course was mouthwatering and so full of flavour.

The couple and other family members give you full attention all the time with a warm smile. Starters as homemade jams, different local lenses and beans, pecorino cheese, local fried and... More

We visited this restaurant on our last trip to La Marche 5 years ago and we were not disappointed on our return. This is a good family run, welcoming place to eat, maybe not a place for a romantic meal but none the less recommended for that. Local pasta and meat dishes, served by friendly family members in a homely... More

We live in the Netherlands but when we are on a holiday in Italy we try to make some time to go visit this fantastic restaurant. Very friendly owners. Eating here is always a feast. I dont want a menu but like to be surprised with the dishes of the day. Thank you so much.

When we first walked in, we were greeted by the family and taken to our table. The service is fantastic, and the family members took the time to answer any... More
