This restaurant was among those recommended by Giacomo, the owner of the Politian Apartments. We wandered in one night after realizing we had neglected to make reservations anywhere... They were full but the server offered to get us seated within about 45 minutes if we wanted to come back. We went for a walk around town and returned about 45... More

Friendly service. Advertises veggies from their own garden. Delightful food that was scrumptious. Located right next to the main plaza. Outdoor seating right on the plaza.

Asked for a rare steak ... received overcooked shoe leather. True to our Canadian upbringing, in an attempt to make the best of it and not create a scene, we choked back what we could. We did eventually tell the waiter, who told us that we wouldn't be charged for it. Apparently, the waiter got trumped as the bill featured... More

We sat outside on a sunny day and a guitar player was playing in the piazza which set the scene. Food was very tasty and thet have fresh organic veg which was a big attraction as veg are not widely served in restaurant s.

We came upon this restaurant by accident and then noticed it was in Rick Steve's book. Everything comes straight from the farm. Service was gracious. The house wine was exceptional. We are still salivating over the exceptional meal we enjoyed.

The pasta was so salty, and the waitress merely said that is how we prepare our dishes. I requested to cut back the salt by 1/2 for our next 2 dishes but my rabbit came very salty and dry. I told the waitress I was not happy with the meal but she only said sorry and walked away. Two chances... More

This is a lovely little restaurant right on the piazza. We first had lunch there and loved everything from the chicken to the pasta. My husband doesn't usually order chicken in restaurants, however, we landed up going back there for just that reason, it was so good. All the pasta dishes we had were excellent. We had the same waiter,... More
