Stayed for a quick pizza. Food is below average for a supposedly authentic trattoria. Pizza was well made but ingredients did not seem particularly fresh, particularly the mushrooms. Service is also substandard and price is average. Not recommended.

Small but perfectly formed! Just great, traditional Italian food served by friendly people who clearly know how to feed you. A small place and so busy. Not a bad word to say and full of Italians so if they like it how can us foreigners question it?

The restaurant is really small so your best chance is to visit in summer when they have extra seating outdoors. During high season you have to wait to be seated but the quality of the food will reward your patience.
