By chance we walked into this very small restaurant just steps away from the monument indicating the centre of Italy. Both tourists and locals enjoy the place, just a few tables big. The food was nice, the service friendly but the coffee was not good,...More

Ho mangiato buon-iss-i-mo in questo posto. You must try the lenticche con salsicce as a starter, done to perfection! Followed with a primi pizzicotti, home made bits of pasta in a sugo to die for. Gente gentilisimi, simpatici! Didn't want the meal to finish !

A wonderful local in town for working people to lunch: civil servants, gas company engineers, shop owners and couples. The owner is professional and warm at the same time. We shared a pasta and an ox tail- this was enough for the two of us!...More
