The building supposedly stems from the first century BC, and the floors are glass so you can see down into the ruins. You might think this is gimmicky, but it's not, and the food is superb. In particular do not miss the home made gelato and sorbet collection. We had a long conversation after dinner with the chef/owner who completed some of his training in the US.
