Having just come home from a 5 week tour of Spain and Italy, visiting Madrid, Florence and Rome I would have never thought that the best meal of the trip would be in a place like Vitebro We went to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. To our surprise and delight the food was superb - especially... More

One of our starters was poorly prepared (seriously raw pasta -- not al dente, but hard -- it would have been good if properly cooked), and one of our mains (osso buco) was simply unpleasant.

I only had a like a snack, gnocchi di patate with a pumpkin sauce. Dumplings were very nice, sauce a little oily. But still good. The price was very good, too, and even an English menu was available. Interiors of the place fine, standard, maybe a little overdone. Staff friendly, trying their best English. I dont think you can do... More
