An informal restaurant with nice atmosphere very good staff. The food was very good and they did not rush us out as we lingered over the copious amounts of food and wine.

We learned of La Laconda di Desideria by chance as you rarely would pass by by coincidence. The surroundings are very nice and the restaurant room it self is incredible beautiful. The food is of high quality and reflects the area. The pastas are some of the best we have had for quite some time in Italy. The service was... More

My wife's sister visits this area frequently so when asked to name any good restaurants this was her favourite. My and 2 other families stayed in Citta della Pieve and this was the best meal during our 8 day holiday. The restaurant is quite informal, has a lovely vaulted ceiling with a great array of good and fine wines stacked... More

We saw a sign to this restaurant whilst out driving; checked on the reviews in TripAdvisor; & decided to eat lunch there. What a pleasant surprise. A cool underground vault of a 500 century castle in a charming little hilltop village just above Fabro. Busy in the evenings (especially weekends when it is best to reserve a table), my husband...

Got taken to this hidden gem recently for birthday celebrations. The dining room is a vast underground vault that manages to be cosy. The proprietor is a really charming gentleman who has a passion for food and a real nose for fantastic wine. During a four day gastronomic tour,this place stood head and shoulders above the rest. Perfect ingredients cooked... More

Some friends took us to this restaurant recently as they have been coming here for many years. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting in the mountains. Julianno, who owns the business is so friendly and welcoming. The proof of the pudding of course...and it didn't fail to deliver. The best Aubergine Parmigiano ever, followed by an excellent pasta dish... More

Spent a week in the area eating out every night and this was the most authentic Italian restaurant of them all. The owner was very helpful and attentive and we will definitely return.
