Had the pasta with wild boar, which was amazing! Service was good, and the interior was also very nice. My wife had tortelloni, which was tasty, but some of the pasta was undercooked, so I sadly have to deduct a star.

A lovely Scicilian restaurant, full of atmosphere and history. The food was excellent, the service great, and the price perfest. As for the wines, I had the pick of most of my favourites.

I came here for a rather (12 pm) lunch, before catching a flight. Several people were sitting outside, but for lunch I was asked to sit inside. The waiter was clearly new, as he had to come back 3 times before my order was complete....More

We had a 10% off from the tour of the fantastic Georgian house next door, and would have been so sorry if we had missed this excellent little restaurant. Seafood soup so tasty and our fresh pasta dishes subtle and filling. They also did wine...More
