I am Italian born and raised but have lived in Australia for 40 years. I therefore strongly detest anything that smacks of tourist attraction in Italy . Let me tell you that this Gem is not! The non English speaking waiter was able to explain the basic but excellent menu to my non Italian speaking daughter. No frills. No kitsch... More

The bar/gelateria looks out over the valley below. Amazing views!! Choice of indoor or outdoor seating. I had the cioccolato fondente and fior di panna. Wow!! Chocolate so dark it was almost black!! Wonderful spot to stop while we were out wandering.

This restaurant offers fantastic food at a fair price. The servers and cooks were friendly and so very welcoming. The view in front of the restaurant is fantastic as well. Highly recommend to anyone lucky enough to visit Frontone.

This is one of the most incredible places of the area. Everything is home made, cooked there in front of your eyes in a huge fireplace. Pasta, meat and sweats are all excellent. But you must try their crescia and their pannacotta! In addition he castle is one of the most scenic of the entire region. A must see.

Went here one evening with fiancée. Shared some pasta, then had the mixed grill. Glad we shared the pasta as the portion was massive. Mixed grill also good. Wine decent and pretty cheap. It was mentally busy the night we went, but service was fine. Nice place to go.

Don't expect to see menu. They have few selection in every course. You can also ask for some mix. Everything is simple and tasty. Surprisingly good house vine. You can have your dinner in 1 hour or you can stay for a whole night, it's up to you

Un suggestivo locale dove le pietre profumano di storia.
