Operated independently from the Relais Della Rovere where it is situated, by the waiter and his chef/wife. Outstanding and friendly service accompanied with good ( just not excellent) food.

Very elegant decoration and extremely friendly staff. The food is very nice and creative but mostly with local and regional ingredients. The wine list is very elaborate and with more than acceptable prices. Will definitely return here!
