I loved the restaurant the minute I entered, the deco was very rustic but elegant, the aroma was simply mouth watering. The owner is extremely friendly and always recommend the best dishes according to yr taste. We had a complete meal with antipasto (tagliere of course), pasta gramigna and meat . Their wine selection is super, too. A must if... More

Altho a bit cramped inside the service and food were both excellent and they had good, inexpensive vino de casa, both red and white. The garden was only open on weekends but we'd try to sit there if we ever return.

Busy and bustling, the restaurant looks tiny from outside! Inside, it's a warren of lovely rooms and corners. The staff are charming, helpful and make time to chat even though they are rushed off their feet! The food is local, simple and of excellent quality. There is a huge range of salami 'plates' offering different combinations, then home made pasta... More

The taglieri with salumi and pappa al pomodoro are really good, the garden inside is a little jewel but the price for what they offer is a bit expensive.

I dined at the restaurant with a group of 10 friends. We booked a table in the garden as the evening was warm. Once we found the street - it's narrow and likely you would keep walking but do not be put off. The restaurant has a few tables under porticos on the street but the real jewel is the... More

We came here based on the advice of our host and can highly recommend the place to anyone. The atmosphere is fantastic, service is great, you can barely see any other tourists. We had lasagne and tortellini ricotta - both delicious with a bottle of nice red wine and two desserts and paid just 44 €. We are thinking on... More

Very good meals and the adviced wine is excellent. The service is good, waiters explained us every meal. The boss offered us a glass of limoncello at the end and he asked us some questions. We were lucky because we had dinner in the beautiful garden in the back of the restaurant. I recommend this place to everyone going ho... More

Having read the reviews, we were excited about our visit to this restaurant. The service was very pleasant and the food was OK without being outstanding. However, when we arrived we were shown to the back dining room (near the kitchen and toilet) and were the only ones in there for the whole meal (except for people queuing for the... More

I use to come often to this little nice Osteria and I never get disappointed. On the contrary, the more I go back there the more I like it. The place is relatively small, and you need to book in advance to get a table, especially in the week end. The service is very friendly and professional and the atmosphere... More
