Because of my love for pesto, I've had plenty in Italy and even though we came here with high expectations after reading the reviews, the food sadly didn't live up to it. The pesto tasted somewhat spinachy. It wasn't unpleasant but just a little odd....More

The Osteria was just round the corner from where we were staying and it was a great find. It had a lively atmosphere and was reasonably priced. The food choices were great too, we loved it.
