Good food and helpful staff - even though they did not speak much English. Very reasonable price too. Colle is charming hilltop city - you need to walk into the old city and keep going until almost the end! Wonderful place for lunch.

To be fair, we did call in the afternoon of Good Friday, but thought we might be able to get one of their gelato confections plus a drink as they were open. Sadly, no gelato was available, they could only offer one kind of beer and my wife's water came without a glass.... Their advertising​ makes a big deal of... More

Totally enjoyed our lunch here after our leisurely amble around this beautiful old town . We all enjoyed a light lunch -great bruschetta and pasta as well as a glass of local rose. Lovely service.

Was surprised by bad reviews though we had our lunch only once at this place. All that we've ordered was really good- shtrudel with black cabbage and truffle, typical stuffed rabbit and ravioli with truffle and porcini. The real surprise was apple shtudel - perfect with delicious sauce not too sweet.

Could hardly believe how dire the food was. Carpaccio Di Manza seemed to come straight from a supermarket packet along with the salad that had no dressing on and we had to ask for oil and vinegar etc. The "home-made" spaghetti was stodgy and sauce pretty tasteless. Chicken dish seemed to have been microwaved as well.

We came here for dinner pretty late and there was not a lot of people here, but the place looked nice, so we sat down. My friends ordered two courses, but i was not too hungry, so I decided to only have a Main course. I received my main course when the others got their starters, which I didn't appreciated.... More

We initially popped in for coffee on a brief tourist visit to the upper town, but were impressed by the owner, his staff and the welcome we received and so decided to stay for lunch. The food was excellent and the ambience was very pleasant. The owner has a good sense of humour and was keen to make our stay... More
