This restaurant was amazing! From the service (which was impeccable) to the amazing food, we were so blown away by the restaurants preparation of traditional Lucian recipes such as the peppers fried in olive oil, pork and lamb! We are so happy we found this gem and can’t wait to make it our first spot when we get back!

We were expecting really delicious based on the rating but unfortunately the food was really bland. I had the veal cheek and because it was so tender I kept hoping it’d improve as I continued to eat it. I finally had to add salt to finish. My husband had the beef but that was underseasoned as well. Our waiter was inexperienced but sweet as he was trying to do everything correctly, but it was the chef that served us. We skipped dessert. I hope they improve but a rating of 9.6 wasnt warranted in our case.

Dear customer, we are sorry that you have given this evaluation, judging a meat dish by the lack of salt is not correct, the braised veal cheek is rich in aromas and flavors (aromatic herbs, vegetables and wine marinated for 24 hours) rigorously cooked without salt because the brown stock of beef with Aglianico wine reduction adds the salty part and the wild chicory adds the bitterness. Judging a dish is not a game but implies knowledge of many factors and experience. We apologize for the young but polite service, unfortunately that evening the chef-sommelier-owner was absent but in any case you didn't complain anything to those present. Best regards
