We went here on a lunch because the kids felt like pizza but my wife and I wanted something else. After waiting for like 20 minutes before we were handed a menu, even though the table next to use had been served with food and drinks a couple of times during that 20 minutes, we were told that pizzas were not possible when they brought the drinks we ordered. The kids got their food before us and they could have finished their plate twice before my wife and I got our pasta. Taste wise it was OK, but this restaurant is clearly struggling we staff (we could hear a very heated discussion going on in the kitchen from the terrace table where we sat).

We ate with another couple at Il Frantoio on a Sunday night. Food we pas good and very well priced. It did take a long time to get the food and then had to hunt down the waitress to pay (we saw others doing this as well). Good if you have the time.

Pizza is the star here. Almost too much choice (30 plus toppings), but the pizzas were impeccably thin and perfectly-cooked. They looked huge on the plate but the pizza dough was so light and crispy that they soon disappeared. The atmosphere is lively and cheerful, with no-nonsense plain tables, house wine served in jugs and no pretence of "ambience", but that suited the plain, simple and well-cooked food perfectly. Service was a little slow, but we can't blame the excellent and fast-working waitress who seemed to be the only person serving. Thoroughly recommended for a taste of what Italy does so well - uncomplicated food, well cooked.

This family run restaurant serves pizza, pasta and other local dishes. All are made simply with tasty local produce, full of flavour. Great value: pizzas start at 4€ up to 9€. Great for families. Only Italian spoken.
