We ate here twice whilst staying in the local agriturismo San ilario sul Farfa (great place). Good bruschetta, lovely ripe melon with prosciutto, pasta with simple sauces, pizza etc. Friendly place. More limited at lunchtime (no pizza, as is common in Italy). Shaded terrace. Good bread shop next door, and can walk around the atmospheric streets of the medieval village.... More

I am sorry to have to write a bad review of a restaurant I really wanted to like. The location is idyllic, the waitress was charming etc... We ordered fettuccine Al Ragu on 2 different evenings - there is virtually no meat in it. As a vegetarian dish it was very nice. The pizzas were burnt and the cheese so... More

This place is just perfect. Very authentic homemade Italian food and great value. Melon with ham, homemade pasta with porcini and truffles or with a perfect tomato sauce, lamb with artichokes, rabbit, tiramisù... Will definitely visit again next year.

Absolutely authentic Roman country cooking! We had the zuppa di fagioli to start accompanied by delicious crusty country bread. We could not fault the soup, it was gorgeous and seasoned to perfection. My son had homemade tagliatelle with sugo di pomodoro which was delightful. Then we had coniglio al forno which was absolutely superb. I've never eaten rabbit before and... More

We ate in this restaurant 4 times over the course of our two week stay in Castelnuovo di Farfa. The pizzas were just delicious. We found it very strange that we were not offered any menus. The lady that served us turned out to be most helpful and friendly to us. Enoyed our evenings there, but only sampled the pizzas... More
