“Best meal in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I hesitate to assign any particular restaurant the title of 'Best Meal'. There is so much variability and another person may have a different experience. However, after careful thought, our assessment was that our meal at this Enoteca was simply exceptional. We had many good meals in our month in Italy and a few very good ones and only one that was really poor. This is a Rick Steeves recommendation and likely we would never have found it if not for the guide book. Their specialty is lasagna and I suggest that you order that. Mine was white asparagus as it was in season and my husband's was mushroom.Both were amazingly good. I do not have a sophisticated wine palate but I have to say that the pairings Anna made for these two dishes were exceptional. A bit of fine chocolate with cherry & espresso was our finish and she poured lemoncello. How did you find us she asked.They had no idea they were in Steeve's guide book. They did not even know who Rick Steeves was. Chef came out to view with Anna their entry in the guide book with surprise and pleasure. They are a delight.

“True Italian style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

My husband and I went to this restaurant because of the reviews on trip advisor, I am gluten free.
It is a very small and intimate place. Helpful service. Had a fabulous gluten free meal complete with senza glutine bread sticks! Great wine list. As all gracious Italians do, at the end of our meal a limoncello was offered. Molto buono!

“simple, but excellent - like Italian food should be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

very small place, very friendly staff, nice simple dishes and wonderful wines. We were there before a concert and had to hurry, but that was no problem.
