Extraordinarily beautiful setting. The evening air is perfumed by nearby fig and linden trees and a jasmine hedge. The walled courtyard has interesting sculptures, plants and rural artifacts decoratively positioned, with sweeping sails overhead creating an intimate atmosphere.
The fresh egg pasta with truffle mushrooms was exquisite.
In fact the food menu is varied (tripe, anyone?) and locally sourced. My companions were very happy with their choices but I have a warning for you...
Apparently Tagliata is classically and deliberately salty but there must have been a heaped teaspoon of rock salt liberally scattered over my enormous cut of beef, beautifully cooked, served with greens and tender fresh pepper corns, but sadly the salt wrecked it.

Interesting menu. Very good service. Lovely location in secluded courtyard. Food very enjoyable. All family of four enjoyed their meals. Dessert was particularly delicious - peach tiramisu.

Having just moved to Sutri this restaurant was recommended to us by another non-Italian couple who have lived in Sutri for some 10 years. It is away from the main town square (Piazza Comunale) and has both indoor and outdoor seating. On our first visit we were very impressed and the food was excellent, but perhaps that was because there were few customers in the restaurant that night. Following their annual holiday the menu had been slightly changed and the cinghiale (wild boar) was excellent. They indicate on the menu that they cater for customers with dietary issues including gluten free. However the menu is somewhat limited for those looking for gluten free items. There was no gluten free pasta available and they did not offer gluten free bread.

Our next visit was on Saturday evening when we had invited friends (Italian Danish couple). The restaurant was packed and service somewhat slow and in that respect did not come up to the standard of the first visit. The food however, was excellent, although I was very disappointed with the risotto. Our guests enjoyed their cinghiale (wild boar) and pork on the bone and thought it delicious. The guests also enjoyed their deserts, but there was only one gluten free option and I have sampled this previously (crème brùlée with forest fruits which is delicious).

We just happened on Locanda di Saturne in Sutri, Italy quite by chance. As pilgrims walking the Via Francigena we were accustomed to simply finding a place near the hostel where we were staying and eating, perhaps a pilgrim meal. By the time we got to Sutri we hoped for something different, especially after possibly the worse lunch ever in that town. We found the best dinner ever! What a delightful location, ambiance, and service. And the unusual food was superior in quality and taste. I split three dishes with my sister: the risotto with figs and gorgonzola, the salad of arugula, gorgonzola, almonds, chicory, apples, and honey and a salad of beans, celery and red onion. All were excellent! Then dessert. The four of us split a special cake covered in chocolate. Again excellent. The cake was so moist and the chocolate excellent. As full as we all were, we probably all would have eaten a complete dessert by ourselves, had we ordered it. It was that good! And it was all very reasonably priced!
