We were lucky to get a table as we hadn't booked. There's a delightful garden which is cool and pretty. The tables are set a good distance apart. It's a super place to spend an evening with friends. The staff work really hard. The restaurant was full and there were only three waiteresses. It's not a problem except if you... More

Went to dinner on a Thursday and were lucky there were tables available. According to Rick Steves you should make a reservation because this establishment is so popular. This is the only other place I have given five stars while vacationing for two weeks in Italy. The waitresses were lovely and cheery. Our meal started with an appetizer on the... More

We eat in the garden, beautiful. Staffs are friendly. We had salume cuts as antipasto, very good! I had a home made ravioli con ragu, good. My friend had scallop, very good! Dessert "semi freddi di gianduia" we didn't like it.

This delightful, but small restaurant is run by a husband and wife team who are a delight to meet. The husband is the very competent chef. They obviously love what they are doing and it shows. They and all the staff always have a smile and the food and wine is also excellent !!!

We had a fabulous meal here. We ordered an appetiser and a pasta dish. I had rabbit roulade which smelt and tasted delicious. The rabbit was de-boned and stuffed then roasted and sliced on the plate. My husband had octopus salad which he loved. The thick octopus legs were cut onto bite-size lengths, cooked perfectly and served with a rocket... More
