We went to the restaurant but it was closed. Further enquiries led us to believe that this wonderful place has closed due to the retirement of the owners. (November 2016)

We have enjoyed the dinner we had at Osteria del Gesso. The place is nice and the service very friendly. All the dishes were good but the pasta, tortelli d'erbetta e ricotta alla parmigiana, was one of the best pasta dishes we had in Italy.

We went for lunch, overall the meal was ok but the carpaccio d'anatra was not good (onions were very good though) and the chocolate mousse wasn't exactly tasteful. Side notes, as soon as we got in there was smoke smell in the room, the wine...More
