Where to start, the food is just wonderful and we were given a selection of starters that just melted in the mouth. I had intended to hold back for the main courses but failed! We shared a primi piatti which was delicious and then the secondi - cooked to perfection.
As if this was not enough we managed to share a delicious strudel.
The evening was perfect and finished off with a visit to the "cellar" which had the most delightful smell from the hanging hams salami and parmigiana reggiano.
The service was superb, the atmosphere like a refugio in the mountains, and the chef brothers really skilled. It just melts in the mouth.
Cannot recommend enough.

This place off the beaten path is well worth the visit. Only 10 minutes from the center of Reggio Emilia you will find this refuge. I sat outside on the covered veranda looking at fields full of grapes for wine or lambrusco, not sure which. A very pleasant atmosphere where you are warmly greeted by the owners and family. Marcello in the kitchen along with his brother cook delicious meals typical of the Trentino area of Italy. They are very proud of their cantine where there were 2 whole sides of smoked pork curing as well as other fantastic delicacies of the Trentino region. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning again in the future. I am so glad I found it. Compliments to the family for having such a nice place. A little piece of the Dolomites in Emilia Romagna!

unbelievably tasty food. One of the best restaurants in Emilia Romagna although it is located outside a small village in a very rural area. Cosy and warm place, authentically designed like a mountain hut, amazing hospitality by a unique family of very talented people who master the art of hosting and cooking. We felt at home and didn't want to leave. everything we ordered, from appetizers to deserts, was nothing less than perfect. Don't miss the hot wine in the end. kids friendly.
