A friend of mine lives in Vignanello, a city nearby. Whenever I visit him, we always come here at least once. Nice cozy ambient, warm and professional service, perfect music, and the fillet with green pepper and cognac sauce is probably what the ancient greeks meant by "ambrosia".

My husband and I had a lovely night here in July. Driving from Vignanello to Viterbo around dinnertime we checked Trip Advisor for restaurants in Varranelo, chose this one, and never looked back. The food was great and inventive and tasty, as was the wine and beer. The host and hostess were also very warm nice people. Music, also was perfect. A really memorable night. We'll be back!

We stumbled upon this cosy osteria while visiting Vallerano for the day. What a find! Exceptional ingredients combined with the talent of the chef/ owner made for an excellent lunch in a lovely environment. Decorated in a shabby chic style a cross between a French bistrot and a typical high end Italian osteria. Reasonable prices and great service too. The owners, a lovely couple where on hand to provide information about the surrounding area and chat with guests. Highly recommended for those who good food without breaking the bank.

We have lived in Italy in for almost a year and have been out to a bunch of different places to eat and it has been the same type of food over and over again. When we stayed outside Orte, we were recommended this place. This food was absolutely amazing and we were able to sit and talk with the owners of it.
