Great food, attentive staff and pleasant decor added up to a hugely enjoyable dining experience. While I went carnivore with starters and main (it was just the moo-hungry mood I was in), the wife enjoyed a very pleasant and varied cheese board and - she reckons - the nicest pizza she's ever experienced. With a few exceptions, the wine list... More

We came across this restaurant by chance. It was the end of a long afternoon and we were ready for something really special. We weren't disappointed. The service was genuinely friendly and authentic. We had carbonara and risotto - both absolutely superb. Great flavours and lots of skill on show here. We returned again and sampled their evening menu. Again,... More

I was staying a minutes walk from the restaurant and it always sounded and looked so busy. First stop was the happy hour, drink and tapas for 6 euros, good deal! Stayed for dinner and I chose a pizza as a fellow tourist had come to dine here specifically for the pizza as it had been featured in Conde Nast... More

Really good food in a touristic area next to the Duomo - it is larger than expected and a good place to cool off with a light salad or great pasta dish.

This is a true neighborhood restaurant. We were taken there for lunch, as a group, by our tour director. We had simple meals, a margarita pizza and spaghetti with meat sauce. Both dishes were delicious. Recommended!

Family of 4 visited June 27 2016. We were probably the only ones not speaking Italian there. It is definitely loved by those in the neighborhood and now us as well. The waitress and owner were very attentive and helpful. Wife and I shared seafood spaghetti for 2. Awesome. Kids had 2 unique dishes (unique to Americans) that they loved.... More

It's a bit quantity over quality. My starter of Octopus was excellent but big enough for a main, my wife's bruschetta was better shared. We were nearly replete before our Spaghetti Vongole arrived, so put on the spot I would still say that every other Spaghetti Vongole we have had has been better. ( Ignoring Umberto's in Little Italy NY... More
