Great Food-Great Value

Good, simple food at very reasonable prices. Only locals were there when we had dinner. Fresh lettuce and tomatoes in the salad; self-made vinaigrette. Very good bruschetta with fresh arugula on top. No pasta on the menu when we visited.

(Lavanderia -self serve Laundromat across street) The food was wonderful, the restaurant was very clean and the staff were friendly & helpful. There was a bit of a language barrier, as we speak very minimal Italian, but the google translator app helped us interpret the menu... More
