The setting, the table and the waiters was very nice. The menu card contained something for everyone. We didn’t think it was expensive which we expected but the portions were small. Maybe a bit to formal and not for families with kids.

Wonderful setting up in the hills (own car a must!), with the restaurant nestled around a small courtyard at this hotel. Value for money is OK (paying in part for the location) but the meal (and choices) were a little disappointing.

Very good quality food at the hotel where we were staying. The only thing I would do is add gelato to the dessert menu. We ate here three times during our week's stay and were very happy with every meal. Not huge portions but that...More

Lovely restaurant in the ancient stables of the hamlet of Ricavo. In good weather sitting al fresco in the square under large umbrellas. The carefully prepared dishes with fresh ingredients also include home made pasta, bread and grissini. Great selected wines from surrounding estates. Open for Light Lunch and for Full Evening Dinner. Sunday closed. Reservations recommended.
