If you're a lover of barbecued meat cooked over wood, this place is amazing. Unpretentious, great value and totally delicious. I can't praise this place enough. Probably worth booking, we managed to get a table partly as we were early (8pm!!) and as I speak Italian. If you want the famous 'Fiorentina' (Inch thick T-bone), give them 24 hrs notice.

Thank Ett M

Genuine food. Fantastic service. Interesting setting. High value for money.
Only Italians here except us the night we were there- that tells you what you need to know.

This is some of the best Italian food I've ever had in a no-frills environment. We visited after one too many wines at a nearby vineyard and were there between lunch and dinner, but the service was impeccable and so homey. The grilled meats (especially the pork ribs) were delicious, but the pastas were even better (make sure to try the pumpkin ravioli and the gorgonzola pasta). Highly, highly recommended!!!

Rarely did I have a better steak than here. It is a simple restaurant and the atmosphere is rustic but the staff are friendly and the prices are very moderate.

We came across this place on the recommendation of Silvana and Claudia in Desenzano....took 15 minute taxi out to the place...the taxi driver pulled up outside and checked to see if he was at the right place..we walked through an unassuming door...Gabriel the wonderful Chef was busily cooking away on the biggest grill I've seen to date..the service from Gianluca Berto aka Mario was superb...the presentation of meats has really to be seen...the taste succellent and washed down with locally brewed wine and complimentary after dinner drinks...grazie..
We met some of the charming locals who are very much like locals in GALWAY and Clare and indeed the whole of Ireland...it was great to have the craic with them..grazie

And to top it all off Gabriel,our chef,obliged us with a lift home with doggy bag in hand for the hard working night porter at our hotel whose eyes lit up with joy..with enough food to feed an extended family...thanks again
