The restaurant is located in the central square of Bazzano, under the three arched porticoes.
From the terrace guests can enjoy a nice view on the medieval castle and its tower. Recently,
the restaurant has been renovated; it gives the idea of a French “bistro” with modern decorations.
Three rooms and a bar assure guests a friendly and warm atmosphere. From April to October dinner is
also served on the outdoodr terrace.
