Linguine al ragù di triglia: ok dish, nothing to write home about. Same for paccheri alla norma. Insalata di arance (antipasto) served with raw onion and hot pepper. It gets busy so arrive early.

This is an excellent restaurant. The service was quick. The mozzarella / burrata was superb. I had fritto misto and my husband had pork - both good. It was busy with a constant flow of people hoping for a table. Recommended.
