We had one of the nicest dinner experiences ever in this restaurant in our frequent travels in Italy. The owner and host, Gregorio, was helpful with advice, and the kitchen offered to split dishes we might want to share. The preparation of our meals (mixed antipasti and a variety of primi) was exquisite and the taste delicious. We were not planning on dolci, but went with a suggestion or two - a perfectly done catalan and a yogurt mousse with frutti di bosco. Both were amazing. We mentioned it was our anniversary, so out came a delightful Zibibbo and vino liquoroso - on the house. All in all, this was quite a memorable evening, an uncrowded Thursday, and Gregorio was attentive and engaging, but not intrusive. These people understand the value and joy of eating carefully prepared food in a pleasant atmosphere. If you get near this restaurant, take an evening to enjoy it. It is also very reasonable priced.

This was not just one of the nicest meals, but was also one of the friendliest most welcoming places I have had the pleasure to dine at. They simply couldn't do enough to make sure we all had a great evening.

It's a good place, the staff is kind, food is not bad, nothing special but good and well presented. I'm vegetarian, and there isn't any problem to find something for me into the menu. The resturant is just behind the train station of Coquio Trevisago. During the weekend is better to book. All in all a quite good experience.

Lovely welcoming restaurant, both food & wine very nice, will certainly be back especially for the romantic private dining in the wine cellar.
