In an Agriturismo, the spacious dining area had wonderful service (speaking only in Italian), and with a limited but delicious selection of courses.

The antipasti was delicious and accompanied by various condimenti such as agrodolce herbs (marmalade-like), with the flan/custard of peas being my favorite.

The risotto of strawberries was very good, and nicely soupy as preferred (and the usual in this region), but not as redolent of strawberries as desired.

A half liter of local white wine (Pinot Grigio) accompanied and was good.

We were both VERY full with that the antipasti and the risotto.

Good experience, and for two people the total was only €46.
