Adequate....have found better

We went for dinner last week...two couples. We all loved the charm of the vaulted and the enthusiasm of the environment.

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
