Liked the look of the place near the cathedral. Great menu and, although the service was a bit slow, the food was freshly prepared and was delicious, especially the taster starters. The waiter was friendly and attentive. A jug of red wine was excellent, described as "organic", and only cost €10. Very good value and well worth a visit -... More

Not a bad Osteria, but not as good as a couple of others close to the Cathedral. Nice outdoor seating on the steps by the cathedral wall. Inside is small but quaint. Wasn't a memorable meal, but perfectly reasonable. Was fine, but wouldn't go again.

The food was top notch in a typical trattoria atmosphere. The restaurant was busy so on occasion service was slow but for the price you should not miss it

Great local food in a tiny family restaurant in one of the small via,s around the piazza duomo. Makes up for a special experience. Menu is small and do reserve in advance.

We had made friends with a couple staying in the same location as us and decided a meal out together would be good. Tried for a table for 4 on Saturday to no avail, so we booked for Tuesday. We had the mixed antipasta for 3 as one of us eating very little. Then John and I had the rabbit,... More

We had a table for two in a very small street in front of the restaurant. The antipasti were elaborate and delicious. Also main course was very nice. The only negative point was the red house wine. It was a biologic wine. It tasted like a low quality porto. It was good for one glass as aperitive, but not for... More

Great authentic food in this family-run osteria. The ingredients were wonderfully fresh. We had to wait a bit for a table as we had no reservation, but the service was friendly and good.
