good for zucca/pumpkin dishes

our local ferrarese friend took us to this restaurant. my only complaint about the ambience was that it was a little bit cold. wine was great. most of us had the capellaci alla zuca and many of the dishes are made with or feature some kind of pumpkin influence. lots of families were there

Really good food, excellent service at a reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere. Staff spoke good English, which is a positive as none of us spoke italian.
