The food is good, not wonderful, but the place is sooooo charming and antique, it worth a visit. It is an old restaurant, with all the things that come along! The waiters speak English and are very kind.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We went once as it was more expensive than some others but worth the experience. The food is of very high quality. The house red wine is beautiful and only 8 euros . We arrived without reservation but the front house manager was very welcoming and we got a table after only a... More

This restaurant was one of those recommended by the guide-book given to us by Federico of Domus Alberti and is within walking distance of his place. It was started in 1870 and still seems pretty popular going by the constant stream of patrons waiting to eat here. It's a little formal, but the staff is helpful and courteous. The food... More

We were recommended by Federico at Domus Alberti and he did not let us down. The decode is something straight out of what looks like the 40s. Very elegant. A lovely vibe. From the outset the service was superb. Our waiter obviously took great pride in his resturant and he was excellent all night. We started with the ravioli with... More

The service here was abysmal. We were sat in a corner inside after requesting a table outside that they gave to another party that walked in after us. We waited a long time to be served. The food was greasy and the pasta was so hard it was not "al dente" it was"not cooked". Much better options in the area.

We had a conference dinner there earlier this week. When we arrived at what we had be told was the appointed time they were still setting up. Staff was actually rude and stated they didn't know who we were asking for (we had the owners name). They kept waving their hands as you would to wave a fly away from... More
