The food was excellent! My veal chop was the biggest and simplest I have had on this trip so far but chef let the quality of the food do the talking with great accompaniments from him. The service here was quiet, quick and efficient. Will definitely return!

My husband I had lunch here, and the food was excellent, lasagne frutti di mare and raviolli. The deserts were incredible good. Service was excellent, very friendly and accommodating. We sat outside int the beautiful court yard. Would definitely go there again. Also good value for money.

There were only two tables occupied which is perhaps significant on a Friday evening. Food was ok nothing special. Interior is very high spec/immaculate. The three members of staff/plus the chef spent whole time talking/looking at a laptop - service not the usual friendly and attentive approach you find in italy.

Dinned here with no reservation on a Saturday and it was amazing. The service was impeccable and the food was incredible. I had a pork with spicy honey that was delicious. My sister had the $25 tasting menu which was 4 courses and water/coffee. A great deal! The wines offered are good, we opted for the house red and it... More

We stunbled across this restaurant and felt that the prices were fare (not cheap - but not overly pricey). The service was lovely and the atmosphere charming.

Found this place on the web while searching for another place. But the reviewes here on Tripadvisor were so good that we took a table in the garden by Ammodonostro. We ordered the tasting menu with a bottle of wine and everything was nice and beyond our expectations. Great place, nice food and friendly people.

I stopped in at this restaurant in the center of the old town, because it is open all afternoon and the one I had wanted to try was closed. They have a charming garden out back but I chose to sit inside because I liked the modern decor and perfect temperature. I ordered the onion soup, which was like a... More
