Good value too The food was great although its difficult to have a bad meal in Italy. What sets it apart is the hospitality. The team there obviously enjoy what they do and you are made very welcome.

buongiorno, ho letto la sua recensione e la trovo giustificata se le cose sono andate come da lei detto. però mi scusi se sottolineo una piccola grande assurdità da lei scritta.....ho 45 anni e bevo da sempre l'acqua del nostro acquedotto, le assicuro che le mie ultime analisi del sangue e delle urine, non presentano tracce di sostanze nocive che potrebbero essere disciolte nelle nostre acque. saluti cordiali.
