This one belongs to that rare group of establishments where a gourmet might find common things like a salad dressing or onion fritters taken to a level never experienced before. We were double lucky to pass by and stop at this Ristorante during truffle season (October, 2009) and experienced some of the best food ever.I will not describe or suggest... More
