I'm just back from a fabulous week in Vico staying with one of my best mate's from school who has the good fortune to live there. On this trip I went with my hubby who is a fantastic cook and in truth could be a chef. He was bowled over by the quality of the pasta. The gnocchi in a yellow pepper sauce is superb, as was the tomato and mozzarella pappardelle. Also had to mention the courgette risotto, wow! Luisa who works there is so friendly, always has a welcoming gorgeous big smile and makes great suggestions. Ah the other thing is that we are recent Vegetarians, again no problem to the experienced team here. Giovanni who runs the restaurant is also very welcoming and creates a lovely family atmosphere. Can't recommend this place more highly. Do yourself a favour and sit on the terrace with a campari. Then have one of the meals ever! We'll be back!

Lovely restaurant in a nice location. The staff/owner so helpful and friendly. The pasta, I repeat the pasta is something, really something! All home made and freshly served, (the best way is to share the various types) I asked the lady, (I think owner) how does she make such amazing pasta, she replied with a lot of careful hard work and most of all with passion, and it certainly comes through with such delicate and well balanced taste. It shows she has perfected the art over years, you won't find a better home made pasta this side of Lucca. If you can manage "secondi" or if you are not a pasta lover the main courses are very good, I have had once guinea fowl and another time rabbit both were excellent and the deserts all home made and excellent. Pasta lovers not to be missed.

We were really impressed. We were staying a week in Vico Pancellorum and we ate at that restaurant every day. Every meal was simply fantastic, home made ingredients were perfectly balanced in a really unforgettable dish. One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten. And of course, very kind and professional staff, reasonable prices, a village which is worth to visit.
We will be back.
