Outstanding...known for their pasta

What a pleasant surprise. Used Trip Advisor to find a restaurant close to the hotel and this one came up. Everything from the atmosphere to the service and mostly importantly the meal were just outstanding. Restaurant is known for its fresh pasta.

I booked a table for 12 people at 21:00. The table became available at 22:00. It took 15 minutes to present the available dishes for the day by a waiter that tough it was a theatre play, talking loud and expecting we would enjoy his show. After the long presentation, it was time to presente the wine menu (+10 minutes).... More

Had the prawns and carpaccio for starters, Seafood Pasta and Papardelle for mains. All the dishes were very tasty, high quality and good value for money. The wine we chose was excellent (but I can't remember what it was!) Great service too. Thank you.

Read the reviews and took a chance tonight by just dropping in. No more that 32 seat, small, authentic Italian. If you sit near the door, or in the main aisle you're going to get bumped into....get over it. You're going to have to struggle to fit all the dishes on the table...get over it. Very good carpaccio and antipasto... More

I loved this restaurant, I'd even go as far as saying it was one of the best meals I have ever had. The chocolate fondant was incredible!!

One of the nice little perks of traveling solo is that even the most sought after restaurants can very often fit you in if you just drop by. Tonight I dropped in at Il Vicoletto (thank you Trip Advisor). One of the best meals I've had EVER. Charming ambiance, and clearly a favorite of the locals. To my left, a... More

Great wine, authentic Italian. Best north of Rome? Bread with olive oil was fantastic. Simple but very tasty. Less is more!
