From the moment the old tavern door opens, a roar of laughter echos out, spilling across the valley. As you step into the Trattoria, your senses are captivated. Here, owners dine together as family, on meals cooked over fire and served by candlelight.

The Trattoria has become the epicentre, the gathering place where each day ends the way it began, enjoying good food with great company.
