The restaurant “Only for two” was born in the last century on the vestiges of an ancient Roman villa, with a majestic and suggestive appearance. As reported by Carlo Bartolomeo Piazza, the structure was nothing more than the country house that Mecenate donated to the Latin poet Orazio, information that makes the place even more intriguing and fascinating.
Although centuries have passed since its construction, inside the villa it is still possible to admire the mosaic floors, the cryptoporticus and la Fonte Bandusia, located near the ancient ruins, to which Horace dedicated one of his most famous poems.
Later, due to the end of the Roman Empire, the invasion of the Lombards (and not only) and the dark period of the Middle Ages, the monument fell into disrepair to the point of being completely forgotten. We will have to wait until 1983 to see him rise, in all his majesty.
