Quite sophisticated location with very good local dishes. In this area I prefer to have dinner in more simple places. The service is fast and well organized.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel concierge, it is quite central in a street with several other restaurants. The place was very busy, we had booked a table inside as it was too hot and humid outside on the terrace. We were given the menus by this very hyperactive hostess, then the fireworks started, she was constantly arguing with... More

We grabbed a table for two without a booking on a Saturday night and it turned out to be quite entertaining. We were seated right near the front register and for the hour or so we were there observed the waitstaff and managers/owners arguing over what seemed like every order/table/customer. It was quite bizarre and seemed to get quite tense... More

We really enjoyed lunch here in this tiny and very busy place. Waitstaff was very friendly. The food was delicious, authentic and well priced. I had a fava bean dish that was crazy delicious.

I was in this restaurant on a Monday night. There were 4 of us and we didn't have a reservation. The host put us in the entrance way next to the toilet so the staff who were coming in and out from outside were constantly bumping in to us. The food was mediocre, nothing to shout about. I wouldn't go... More

Good food and a very friendly place. You should try the dish with a selection of cheese and the pasta! It was quite near our hotel, so we went walking. And the owner is always willing to take you back !!!!

Warm friendly service. We went early after biking over 80 km so we were hungry. The anti pasta was a vegetarian platter and was an excellent variety. We enjoyed a bottle of red wine, 2 bottles of water, great pasta and slices of medium rare steak

우연히 만난 이탈리아 친구들과 동행하여 가게 된 곳입니다. 이탈리아 여행 통틀어 TOP3 안에 들 정도로 맛있는 음식이었습니다. 특히 치즈와 파스타치오로 맛을 낸 파스타, 메인으로 나온 고기메뉴는 정말 환상적이었습니다. 그러고보니 basilicata의 와인도 정말 맛있었습니다. I highly recommend this amazing place. I'm honored that I could get a chance to try dishes here.

Full of locals when we arrived, which is usually a good sign. We had to wait a while for a table, but we were served very attentively by an English-speaking lady, who guided us through various menu options and took account of our dietary restrictions. The food was delicious (all traditional regional dishes) and we enjoyed ourselves enormously.

Thank Simon H
