Local friends invited us to dinner here and we are thankful for the introduction. It's a new favorite! The space is gorgeous. Lit softly but adequately with arches and vaulted ceilings, tastefully decorated, the interior is memorable. The wood tables are large and the space is laid out in a way that makes it equally good for couples or groups. The stemware, table linens and silverware are quality without being overly fussy or pretentious. It is an immediately welcoming space.
The service was professional and friendly. We started with the antipasti, which was a combination of hot and cold seafood dishes prepared in a creative and delicious way. The tapas sized plates kept arriving, each one better than the last. It was enough to make an entire meal!
For secondi our group ordered: the polenta with ciauscolo, which was divine. The ahi tuna, which was perfect and fresh, and octopus, which was plated beautifully in a local wine reduction and was also sublime.
The chef is from Milan so there are a few Milanese hints scattered in the menu and he does amazing things with local ingredients. There is enough tradition to satisfy someone looking for local cuisine, but also enough diversity to tempt someone who is looking for something a little different.
There is an outdoor garden area out back in good weather. The restaurant is tucked away down the street from the main piazza and bell tower. Take a left facing the bell tower and walk down, it will be on your left. I definitely recommend. It was a memorable meal in a gorgeous space.
