Stayed at Armena Villa for couple of days. The place is wonderful and staff very helpful and friendly. In our first night we had our dinner the restaurant. The sommelier is great. She's truly a lovely person and the wine she recommended was great. The food in the other hand was a let down. We had the 5 course tasting... More

We stayed at Villa Armena for a couple of nights and had a wonderful dining experience at Il Sorbo Allegro. The young chef just joined the hotel's team this season after training at different 1- and 2-star Michelin restaurants. We had the tasting menu and every course was special and delicious. The cuisine focuses on the use of high-quality local... More

We ate here 3 times whilst staying at Villa Armena. The food is lovely - very high quality and imaginatively prepared. The menu has a small choice (3/4 items per course) so there is not much room for fussy eaters. We tried a number of dishes, haddock, pasta, deer, pork, all of which were very tasty. The waitress/owner is lovely... More

Beautiful place with excellent staff. Started with an amuse bouche of cod fritter which was very good. Artichoke ravioli with bacon was really excellent but the next course of tagliata was inedible. Sent it back and it was replaced with a tasteless pasta with ragu. The problem was well handled by the owner but sadly the food is not up... More

Loved this restaurant!!! The food was incredible - every single ingredient was of the highest quality. Order the Florentine Steak - you will remember it forever. The homemade pasta was exceptional, as was every dish we had. Fantastic service and wine recommendation from Laura, and a really beautiful outdoor seating area. If you are in the area, you should plan... More

Loved the local dishes and home-made everything! The bread, the wine, the pasta, the mains, the dessert! Could go on and on...everything was delicious. Ate here every night we stayed at Villa Armena and was well worth it.

We were lucky enough to eat here for four nights while staying at the Villa, the food is absolutely stunning and the service (from Laura) is incredibly attentive. Still daydreaming about the Pappa al Pomodoro and the Fiorentina Steak :)

We ate here on two nights during our visit to Villa Armena and found the food to be very good (though rarely exceptional) and the ambiance to be perfect. Although there are many tables inside La Sorbo Allegro, most diners chose to eat outside on the patio area. The outside area is very charming and includes a cool look into... More

The 'Sorbo Allegro' restaurant, a leader of the trend for 'zero mile cuisine', serves scintillating Italian and regional dishes prepared exclusively with local seasonal products and accompanied by a thoroughly-researched selection of delicious wines, produced by small, independent Italian wineries whose passion for wine goes hand-in-hand with their love and respect of the region in which it is made.
