Big place, with lots of tables in couple of rooms - but almost all tables were taken in the middle of the week (so better reserve a table). Very nice food and good service. One strange thing about the place - no music to accompany your food. Strange doesn't mean bad, but surprising ;) Nice meat and good local ravioli-like... More

We visited it last summer and the venue has a huge garden with many tables. The staff is really friendly and fast considering the number of customers going there over the weekend. It is the perfect lunch after a visit of citta' Alta. The food is good and prices are affordable. Strongly recommended if you want to experience a typical... More

If you are lucky and someone plays bocce while you are there you'll get a taste of the good old days. You can get some local wine and good food at a very fair price.

Loved this restaurant, nothing fancy but with a wonderful local feel. It was a busy Saturday night and the place was full. I loved the atmosphere. Food was great and reasonably priced. Nice wine too. A must, if visiting the old city.

Great simple, gebuine Italian food. Great value especially in weekdays, when you can get dwo-course menu with wine, water and coffee for 14 euro. The restaurant is huge but busy, with many locals at different age which is always a good sign. I enjoyed every meal there. Great staff. Good place for families (BTW in a fancy La Tana I... More

Plain because it's not a luxurious place, not even romantic. However, the plates and the nice service (all young guys) left is a very good impression. Good quality for good value.

We were a group of 17 work colleagues who were 1 hour late for our booking. The kitchen was due to close at 22:30.....we called to say we were walking through Bergamot. ...they waited for us. They stayed open past their closing hours. Their service was immediate - menus in English, water and wine served in 5 minutes. Polite and... More

We went with a local couple who knew it was not just a restaurant but contributed to the community.That being said the food and service was good as was the selection of wine.Very relaxed and reasonably priced selection of local foods.The buckwheat polenta with mushrooms was great as was the spaghetti with octopus and olives.
