I asked to a local friend to take me o a Trattoria having a local menu. I was pleasantly surprised. If you are a tourist and decide to go to this place then understand the mentality. Local food, local owners, local clients. To enjoy -try to join to.
The food was good and so the service. I don't know the price since i was invited.
Recommend ?
Absolutely.

Had dinner there with a large group organised by my Italian office, didnt realise it was outside and it was quite chilly as I was only in a tee shirt

The food though was excellent and the lady in charge was very funny with all her comments which though with little Italian I could understand as I speak a bit of Spanish

The food was great we had polenta and risotto ,followed by a sort of tagliatelle, al dente very nice and a mixed girl, dessert was a chocolate concoction

Best thing was the spritz.....besti have ever had. Funny night great food in a very beautiful underrated city.

We had an execellent dinner eating here local food. Italian know very little English so we gambled about the food but turned out great. Polenta+Squid noodles+ grilled Sole fish+stuffing of spinach and artichoke+ still water, ~70e. The atmosphere was very uniqe. Roaling tunderstoms and heavy rain above the closed garden, grilled chicken on an open fire on the back kitchen, till the rain came down under our seats and then every body rushed in...

We went for Dinner and staff was quick to get a table for us.Order placed was a bit out of taste and was changed quickly without any hesitation.Chef was out later and explained what happened,very nice staff all over.It was bit annoying when people stare at you as there are more local customers than tourists in restaurant.It was walking distance from where we were staying.

We visited this place on a recommendation from our hotel and enjoyed it very much (in fact, we visited twice). The waitstaff had limited English and their "English" menu wasn't much better, but we managed to convey what we wanted and they were helpful to us, even bringing us the raw fowl to show us the difference between pollo and gallino! They also brought us a free plate of bresaola and salami to tide us over while waiting for our food. Another night, we were offered free cordials after paying our bills. Definitely not a tourist joint. We enjoyed watching the grillmaster and the huge flaming grill at the end of the open-air dining room where our meals were being prepared. Among foods we enjoyed were the roast chicken, roast pork rib, vitello tonnato and shredded artichoke salads. A bit pricey, but worth it for the quality and relaxed, family atmosphere.
