Excellent steaks and amazing valpolicella and gorgeous views. Very romantic assuming your significant other likes steak as well. The walk from Arqua Petrarca is ok, but remember to use your phone as a flashlight coming back from dinner as the road is quite dark.

The location is truly charming. We walked from the village (about 10 min) to this quiet spot set in the nature. We arrived as their first guests for that Monday evening and were received with genuine hospitality although we hardly speak any Italian. They treat foreign guests as warm as locals. Very soon, the garden was filled up with quite many Italian guests.

We ordered smoked duck--indeed of an exquisite quality--, ravioli and pasta with mushrooms and peas. As I have digestive problems with cream sauce, I asked the friendly hostess for recommendation. She was helpful and the kitchen kindly accommodated my wish. My pasta turned out just perfect and delicious. The dinner ended our week-long trip in the region with authentic rural charm.

Thank you again for the lovely evening!

What a place - the homemade pasta, barbeque from heaven, the beer in a champagne bottle, service impeccapble, all great! We were advised by our local expert to visit the place - and we are so happy we did. It is a short walk (about 1 km)from the main square - be advised of traffic on narrow street, but well worth it. and you need the walk after the meal:-)

Location top, easy for parking. Cozy and warm atmosphere, even who is not a meat lover will love to try it, or else so many beautiful alternatives. Great wine carte and kind and tailored service. You really feel taken care.
