The restaurant is just outside the walled City. Totally Italian. Food was awesome. I had the penne, m wife had the ravioli. Excellent. Ambiance was romantic with authentic Italian music. Good was superb. Claudio the owner was charming and his wife is the true gourmet chef. Do not miss this place if you love Italian food.

Went to this restaurant with 17 colleagues. I had high hopes of a good evening as I had dined here before and was well pleased.From the start of the evening it was disappointing. We were seated at 3 tables and one of my colleagues experienced serious rudeness over the quality of the Chardonnay. Very inappropriate behaviour from a Senior employee.... More

Strangely the place was only half full on the night. Food was excellent and prices were reasonable. An enjoyable night.

We came here with our two children (13 & 10), and everyone had a very good meal! The scampi al forno was excellent, and the pasta was very well prepared al-dente. The Turbot and Branzino were excellent, and the lamb chops were good if not spectacular. The deserts were fantastic, don't miss the panacotta.

Excellent authentic Italian food. Owner appreciated my very poor attempt at Italian. A little gem hidden down a side street that could be easily overlooked. There are views over the river depending where you sit too
