Recommended by Elisabetta, our B&B owner, we couldn't help but keep going back to this place. Loved the atmosphere, the attentive and patient staff and of course, the food and wine. Not only do they do massive pours per glass, but they also have artisanal beers available.

Retro 2 was close to where I was staying and had been recommended by my landlady and other guests. It was excellent. I was travelling alone for a few days and they made me feel very welcome.

She called and got us reservations, which turned out to be a good thing because it was packed. We were probably the only tourists there – it was packed with locals who obviously came... More

Enjoyed this hip modern what i would call trattoria. Our primo, a pasta toscana, was superb. The secondo a good and creative approach to porchetta. The staff really hustles. The decor- hip retro-is fun. There were two very large tables the night we were there...so typical noisy trattoria in that sense. A bit pricey for what it is, but we... More

Wonderfully distinctive restaurant; the food is *excellent*. The dishes are very well prepared and sophisticated without at all being fussy. At the same time has a very relaxed, home-style character. The service is very good too.
