“Bustling and Busting”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

Great little restaurant, great welcome and tasty food. We were a bit early but the place soon filled up and bustled. Warm friendly atmosphere from the smooching couple to the family with 3 small children. all were catered for with a smile. At the end of the meal the waiter/owner?/manager came and sat with us and chatted about our visit, informal and friendly. Our only problem was the huge portion of excellent pasta for the starter, followed by generous and well prepared main courses. Now I know we needn't have eaten all that pasta - our fault not theirs but we were busting at the end - even the complimentary digestif - local Nocino liqueur couldn't ease the discomfort. All in all though an excellent informal lunch.

“Great, Simple, Trattoria.”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

We found the reviews to be promising and we stopped in this lovely small trattoria. close to the center, not too easy to find but not that much of a hassle either.
Great portion sizes, giant salumi and formaggi, hard to finish in two.. and lovely primi, try the culatello and asparagi sauce.
Nice and informal service, and quick to provide food.
Prices absolutely reasonable, with half a bottle of wine, antipasto and two primi, 30 euro in two people..
