Our local Airbnb host recommended this place for dinner and we were concerned by the low ratings here and on google, but this restaurant was absolutely delicious! The pici pasta was delectably al dente (which it appears some reviewers are not used to) and the...More

We went there for lunch with 3 kids. Good place with a small terrace. Ingredients were fresh and good quality and they propose a very good local birra "the bat". The water is free which is highly appreciated.
