One of several places to eat in the old town, very prettily situated with an outside terrace. An excellent and original menu, good service. This is not a cheap place ( the pizza place next door looked better value and was teeming with people) but...More

We decided to stop along the way to Genoa to try this Osteria. Despite some waiting for the table we really enjoyed it. We had the charcuterie as starter, very generous board and delicious, and after handmade gnocchi with castelnagno cheese and black truffle and...More

Excellent fresh and well cooked delights. The Tris of Porcini ( Ceps cooked in three ways) is to die for. I am not joking. And because I hadn't had enough of Ceps, I also devoured the Taglionlini Ai Porcini, (pasta with Ceps) cooked to perfection....More
