This place was recommended by our hotel as a place to get a 'T-bone' steak. So we did, 1.5 kilos of steak! It was well prepared, and once you have eaten the main portions, they take the steak back to the grill and re-cook it, chop up the 't-bone' sections and bring it back for you to gnaw on like...

Locals recommended the place to go as a family: just right. Delicious food and welcoming team who take pride in good service for all, kids included. Special dough for focaccia and pizza made from kamut, oat and other flours make these superbly light and tasty. Aged meat is really good too. Much to enjoy!

This place was recommended to us by a local and it was good advice. The place is nice and specious . The pizzas were delicious (and big). Pay attention to the limited opening hours.

This was outstanding food. The ribs were the best I've ever had, and I like ribs. The pizza is great and so is the house wine. The owners very nice. David a waiter and lead man was tremendous.

We went here for dinner mainly for pizzas from the wood fired oven. The pizza with Porcini mushrooms (in season at the time) was fantastic. At around EUR 9-10 for a pretty big pizza (thin crust style), it's great value. The owner was very proud of his Bistecca (40 days dried aged he claimed) and it really looked great, but... More
