This is not the first agriturismo I've eaten in but it is certainly one of the best. It is important to know that this really is an option for meat eaters and those with a good appetite. We had three antipasti, pasta, risotto and two...More

If you plan to walk here from Orta San Giulio, make sure you bring a flashlight for the way back! Dodgy looking part of town near the rail station, but probably safe. Excellent value, the prices for bottles of wine are what you would pay...More

Very nice "agriturismo" with no menu but eating what the chef has made. Extended menu, small portions to have tasted a lot of different dishes which have been served by a very friendly staff.

Well worth a visit. Great food, set menu. If you're a fussy eater then maybe not the place for you, but if you like to try new things then this is perfect. Good choice of wine at reasonable prices. First class service with a smile.

Very nice setting and spacious green safe space outside for children to play. Excellent food. It's a set menu of several small sized beautiful courses and the birthday cake was very light and fresh. Definitely would go back again.

La prenotazione non e' obbligatoria ma comunque consiglio di telefonare per prenotare un tavolo perche' il locale non e' molto grande e nei weeh end e' sempre tutto esaurito.
