We had a very nice dinner. The starters very nice(aubergine parmigiana) and veal. Mains: pasta with venison (great), ossocbuco risotto (stodgy and not Italian). Wine was great -as was the service. Clientele- well preserved locals.

Everything was outstanding: food, service, ambiance. It was the best restaurant we visited in town ythis time. Far better than other ones, with reassonable prices and good cost/benefit ratio. I would recommend it strongly.

Going to this place was one of the best decisions of our trip. The service was amazing, the chef consistently roams the floor talking to guests and making sure everything is fine. The place is small and very well decorated. Great for couples night out....More
