Even the bread and crostini was made by the chef! This is such a fabulous find. A Roman friend living in Milan recommended it. The food was original, well presented, subtle but very tasty. My husband and I invited three friends and we each tasted...More

Wonderful and romantic environment. Delicious food with selected wine coupled with soft music and very nice and friendly hospitality. I suggest the "stracotto d'asino" if available.

The restaurant is very small only 6 tables, but this makes the place special for an intimate dinner or an evening with some dear friends. The menu is quite rich with a great influence of Sicilian cuisine. Good taste but what is not let me...More

Cugluf is a remarkable, gem-like intimate restaurant. Just 5 tables, with personalized service, elegant Italian cuisine, and a feel more like visiting a home than a business. The pasta with sardines was especially memorable. It is well worth finding this tiny, special place.
