My wife and I stumbled by this place and happy we did. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We loved the atmosphere sitting outside. The inside looked very nice. Great wine too!

This is a major find, new and exciting. A young couple, he in the kitchen, she running the front of the restaurant, have lovingly created a wonderful, all around experience in the off-the-beaten-track location near the S Dominica Church. The quality and variety of the food is far superior to any neighborhood restaurant we tried, and we tried many, with... More

This place looks great and staff were friendly but ultimately it was disappointing. When the plates are too large for the food they carry, when there's stripes of balsamic covering your meal you know you have come to a place that's about looks rather than content. The atmosphere is very very quiet, staff whispering to clients, all very middle class.... More

Fish pasta and seafood risotto were particularly nice. Lovely setting with beautiful tile work. Very close to the Oratorios.

While walking the neighborhood (our B& was nearby) we literally stumbled upon this place....and was open on a Monday! Our lucky night. Unusual also because many restaurants close on Monday. Quiet and tucked away behind a church and main avenue one finds this restaurant in a building that is about to finish being restored (beautifully too if I may add).... More

We had learned that osteria was a term used to describe authentic but cheap places to dine and we were headed for another but saw the osteria in the nearby restaurant that appeared to be open so we tried it and came away pleased. I had Fetticini Pistacchi & Gamberi (shrimp), my sister had "owrdfish" which they described as a... More

Since this place was 50m from the B&B with the same name, we found it convenient to have dinner there. Eating outside, friendly personel and good food for the right price. What more do you need?
