Typical Italian place, »accessible to all«. Several rooms in different styles. Nice terrace. The staff is very friendly, courteous and helpful, speak English. Service is good. Wide choice of excellent food (meet, fish, pasta, pizza), great desserts and very good house wine. Free parking on site. Really interesting place and not expensive.

The food is very good here and was very local to our hotel. The staff were very friendly and we enjoyed every night here. We will definitely return when back in the area.

Wasn't the best but wasn't the worst either. Staying in a hotel near the Ducati factory and not much to choose from. Food was ok, service was ok. Overall an average italian restaurant. Had the tortellini, it was small portion for the price.
