Came for lunch and was happy to be served quickly but nothing was particularly delicious or well prepared. (Ravioli, truffle sauce, grilled mixed meats, roasted potatoes)

If you want a great meal, watch where the locals eat. This restaurant is always busy and sometimes difficult to find a table. I love the ravioli with ragu and the lemon chicken.

We arrived right at the time when the kitchen was about to close for the mid-day rest. But yet they allowed us to select from a slightly restricted menu (there was still enough to choose from).
The Ribollita was heavenly, and so was the veal steak with roasted potatoes. We were totally into the food.
However, no one really spoke Italian and they were slightly irritated that they are having a hard time making them understood. This was not a good feeling but the food made us forget it.
What you cannot forget is the ugly, dirty toilette which they need to tidy for sure!

We visited the Fortezza at Radicofanj on a Saturday and decided to find somewhere for lunch in the village. We'd seen La Grotta on TA and decided that we might as well give it a try.

There were lots of Italians there - perhaps not surprising for a Saturday, it was busy and vibrant. We were ushered to a table and given menus promptly. We just wanted a light lunch so we both had the Affatati (cold meat selection) a bottle of water and shared 0.5 ltr of house wine which was remarkably drinkable for €3.50. A full bottle arrived on the table much to our surprise, however when I mentioned to the waiter that we'd ordered 0.5ltr he said (essentially) just drink 0.5ltr and leave the rest. This is the only place we've experienced this - very trusting and good fun really, can't imagine that happening in the UK :-)

The cold meats were fine, the service was fairly quick so we were content.
