Outstanding traditional simple kitchen. We have to order your meal at the counter at the entrance. You can choose from the displayed dishes or order something from the wall hanging menu. If you don't understand the menu don't worry because the staff is very helpful....More

Many gluten free options. GF bread and pasta. Menu describes each menu option in detail for people with food allergies. I had pork with green apples and pecorino cheese and my husband had pasta with duck ragu. Both meals were delicious. Excellent service from Nicole.

The restaurant was fully booked, we've welcomed you with an aperitif since you didn't have a reservation. We've made you sit down after 15 minutes. I've got your order (3 plates to share) and told the waitress to bring you the wine. You've waited for...More

We found this restaurant on the internet and send a request for a reservation for lunch as there is written that they accept reservations on their web-site. But, we came in the restaurant and there was poor choice of meals as self-service. We took lasagne...More
