Excellent food and a great evening last night, my son particularly enjoyed the gnocchi with fennel and the filet mignon. Very welcoming host and good service, in a restaurant nestled in the mountains. Recommend.

What an experience. Antonio is a truly talented chef who is clearly passionate about his seasonal, slow food. I will never forget the quality of the dishes and the warmth of the surroundings. An unforgettable night- I can’t recommend this place enough.
