“Good food, central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

I've got nothing bad to say about this restaurant. Food was good, service was pleasant ( although slow to get the bill - rather typical for the area!) and location was very convenient to the main square. While not a gastronomic experience, I doubt anyone will be too disappointed with this place. The pasta dishes my wife and I had were both of good quality .

“Great food”

Fritti Misti, ask waiters for food advice. The Truffle celery porcini salad is sensationally delicious

“Old school 70's style restaurant with decent food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Nothing offensive here food-wise and nothing that really wowed - we had some pork and vegetables and some vegetarian pasta (why are people vegetarians?) - all of which was pleasant and tasty; but it won't draw me on the 'very good' rating.

Classic interior; walls filled with photos (if your dinner companion is boring you, you can kill time trying to work out who they all are - my suspicion is they are lesser know Italian film stars and underworld figures - but I only got 5 minutes while my girlfriend was in the 'bagno' (get me!)).

Asked a total of three times and waited a total of 30 minutes for the bill - I was doing the 'don't get mad, just accept it's how things roll here', but it tried me.

We were there for lunch on Friday and it was very busy (we booked) - from what I could tell it was about 95% Italians.

“Central location and can be very busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

This restaurant is on a side street just off the main square and can be very busy in the evenings. The food is good and the wine list extensive and the bill is not likely to be too expensive considering the central location.

“Pretty Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Overall, a pretty good experience. The food was good, the menu expansive, the service was professional and very fast. It was conveniently located near our hotel. The restaurant has a large seating area in the basement. It ran like a well oiled machine. I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars because, while the food was good, it wasn't amazing.
