We ate outside on a hot evening. The menu was good, not over-long, (a good thing for me), and the service was excellent. Not the cheapest, but the food was very good indeed. Neither of us normally eat pudding, but we were tempted by what we saw around us and they were delicious!

We go here often. The food is delicious, although quite simple (the new menu is better). The service is perfect and the place is really calm. Go there if you want a calm, elegant and full of local savors experience

Dined here a few months ago and returned again. Food is very high quality. Service is warm and professional. Setting is charming. Highlights were the baby kid, lemon tart and lasagnette.

My wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner last weekend. The ambiance and welcome are warm, welcoming and professional. The menu aims to bring a level of innovation to regional cuisine.

Though some dishes were well executed (the goat was balanced and flavoursome) most we found rather bland and frankly plain. My wife's turbot was also full of small bones - disappointing at this level.

Madame and her team do a great job, the wine list showcases the region very well.

Our advice would be to choose carefully, and make sure to ask for the chef's bolder dishes. With that proviso we would recommend Vecchio Ristoro.

Really disappointed with our lunch today. I had unremarkable gnocchi on a bed of fish sauce. My main was meant to be roast kid goat. What was served was a 1cm slice of boned kid meat, stuffed with a very strong mix of herbs, especially thyme. This overwhelmed what should have been a delicate bit of meat. The pudding was even worse. A heavy lemon sponge pie, not really tasting of lemon and the thick pastry was undercooked. My husband was equally disappointed with his meal. Seafood pasta was underseasoned with a few scraps of unidentifiable fish. A slice of boned rabbit and unfortunately the same pudding as I had. The red wine from Tuscany was delicious and good value at €20. The bill, with coffees, amounted to over €140. Service was friendly and professional. But the cooking, on our visit, did not reflect it's Michelin star status.
