An impromptu stop for lunch was a pleasant surprise. Although the menu was varied we went with one of the daily specials, pasta ragu. The ragu was flavourful, possibly because there was some ground liver in it, and the pasta was cooked just so. A...More

Excellent food and atmosphere. Small place with simple menu but everything was good. No English but the waitress was very helpful. We were lucky to arrive a little early for lunch as the place filled up. Worth looking for if in the area.
