Fathers my first hero

Fathers is located on a leafy hilltop, at the top of a long steep slope. It’s a little difficult to find so please see the pictures below to help you find it from Route 9, next to the Catholic church. They specialize in using local produce and serve light lunches, coffee and cake, and Italian-style dinner.

The restaurant has large south-facing windows from which you can enjoy a view of the trees and garden. It’s hard to image you’re in the town when you look outside. There are counter seats and tables. If you sit a counter seat, you can see the chef at work.

This picture is exterior. You need to go up a long, steep slope to reach the restaurant. There is also a parking lot so you can go there by car.


This is the outside of the building.


 They use local ingredients for their foods and they offer original menu.

 This is Father’s meat sauce.


This is tomato sauce paccherri.


There are some of the deserts you can enjoy at Fathers.
