Beautiful location, nice staff and excellent food. The focaccia is heavenly and they can make you a fully vegan menu too! I totally recommend. They even have vegan dessert, which is unusual and amazing. Will definitely come back!

Lovely owner, spoke English, staff were very stressed and fast which made experience a bit anxious. Having said that the same meal which was fine dining equivalent back in Australia would have cost $80 per head which only cost $20 per head for 3 courses

The architectural complex on the edge of the Via Aurelia in locations Camponesto, fresh from an impressive makeover, becomes the new frontier of good food low cost. This takes place in the wake of the development of dynamic entrepreneurial reality of Francesco Ricciardi (pictured) that, in small steps, has grown by focusing on ... Flour and oil from the first focacceria of Saint Lucia in the Carrara started in 1997, to that of Caniparola took off 10 years ago up to the new "temple" of homemade flavors, made in the area - with large green frame and numerous parking - detected by the company that there would realize the spa.
