Ok the food was fairly standard but we had a lovely night here. Nice setting out in the street and incredibly friendly service made what could have been an ordinary meal into something much more special.

We arrived late on a holiday night, when the rest of the town seemed closed (or on their way to the municipal fiesta). Alesci was a wonderful waiter, recommended we try first the antipasto, which came as amazing dishes (more hot than cold) and then...More
