Having one great evening dinning courtesty of amazing cooking by Mauro at Fattoria Santa Vittoria, he recommended we try Osteria La Lodola. Traveling for a few weeks with our kids ages 9 & 12,...

We ate here several times over a long weekend and each time it was perfect. A wonderful warm welcome and delicious food. Manuela is incredible, we were all in awe of how she managed to look after all the guests pretty much single handed, plus her children too! Huge thanks to the whole team, we loved it.

Yes, the place looks a little odd but the lady who looked after us was fantastic with her adjusting everything for us as we went. We ended up having antipasti, followed by a starter and then some pasta and risotto. This was followed by a good pud and some decent wines. The food was definitely some of the best that... More

I often go to have my dinners at La Lodola... mainly when I am looking for something Tuscan, Special, Intimate and... warm. Carlo adn Manuela alway put their 100% on what they are doing. The food is amazing and the place is just gorgeous. You can really breath an authentic Osteria feeling here! Love it!

We had the best night here. Our waitress was so delightful and helpful she went through the entire menu and explained each item and what local ingredients were used. The food was delicious and the bread sticks even more so, when I told this to our waitress she even packed a few for us to take away with us. They... More

The red wine was also delicious. Overall very satisfied with food, wine and price! Only niggle, we didn't like their wine glasses which weren't really wine glasses. Only thing... More

Dined here whilst on holiday, and the food is simply excellent. I'm not a huge fan of Rabbit, but it was divine! The Bruschetta was to die for, the wine is perfect. Real true Italian food cooked in a warm and loving way, each dish cared for in a really personal style. This was our favourite from our trip, so... More

Recommended by our hotel, Lodola is what we believed to be an extremely well priced, quaint restaurant (and hotel) with good home cooking. Service was attentive and children are very welcome.

Amazing food, superb service and lovely friendly owners. What more could you ask for. Small but interesting menus which change daily. The food was delicious, we had the house wine with our meals and we were given a small carafe to sample it and make sure we were happy with it before committing. The food was so good we returned...

Based on reviews we went here, not too clear from outside its a restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised when we entered. Cosy inside and pleasant to eat outside, we were early but it soon got busy and with Italians more importantly. Very pleasant waitress and helpful with the menu. I must say the food is truly exquisite and real... More
