I had lunch with my wife on a Sunday during truffle season. We had carne cruda con tartufo bianco (raw meat with truffles), which was very good. The ingredients were so fresh and there are no words to describe the truffles' aroma and flavor. Afterwards,...More

I was worried this restaurant would be stuffy and unwelcoming, that we would feel underdressed and like fish out of water. Thay was not the case. We were warmly welcomed and treated with respect and just the right amount of friendliness. No stuffed shirts in...More

This is where the slow food was created- it seems they have forgotten this... Located in the old town, lovely courtyard seating, really charming. The staff was not friendly and they were very slow (slow service instead of slow food...) Food was disappointing. The starter...More

Excellent food and service. The veal tartare is wonderful. The 40 yolk pasta with butter and sage is very special. And the panna cotta is to die for. Not to be missed. Linked to but not part of the slow food institute. Beautiful out door...More
