Bimbotto is the most perfect traditional Italian trattoria with amazing steak pizzas et cetera. Nicola and his family make you feel really at home. The first place to head for when you arrive.

Description
A "Bimbotto was the nickname of a great grandfather that gave rise to the name of the place. Already in the early '900 was present at the mall activities such as bars, food and tobacco (the old shops) and still today and in full swing. It should be noted that in the 60's 70's the place was famous for snacks or "ciancini" during the summer months, where the sausages, soups, cheeses and cakes "co 'beaks" were the local proposals. By 1998, precisely on June 21 the dining activity came back to life and the proposals in the paper recalls the typical dishes of the area.
