This is what Italian dreams are made of

We drove all of 3/4 miles to this restaurant on the basis of TA reviews and have now returned perhaps 5 times, so we've been consistent. This place is good. And good value. And delicious. Housed in the upper floors of an ancient medieval house in the ancient bongo inside the walls of the old city... read more

Always good at fair price. Very well presented dishes and friendly service. Must make a reservation on weekends. the food - fish or meats - are very good. The wine selection is ok. Deserts are superb. Cozy place. A really nice culinary experience.
