We passed this restaurant on one of the Christmas days when it was raining, and ducked in here for lunch. We were lucky and were one of the first guests arriving, and about 15 minutes later the place was filling up. The menu is interesting,...More

Cheap eats and great pizza. Two of us with a bottle of wine is under 50 euro. Lots of choices, pasta and farinata as well. Busy on weekends!

By far, the best pizza I have had in Italy. Fresh, light and delicious. Reasonable prices and good selection of wine and beer. Will absolutely come back when I visit again.
