We only had a pasta course, Pasta al Norma and is was fine. House red wine was terrible, white slightly better. Service was ok. Not memorable in any way.

It is located on a collonaded piazza and quite a few tables were full so we looked at the menu.Big mistake.
We both ordered a fish pasta,10 euro each which came in a nasty condensed cream sauce and lacked fish, followed by a mixed salad.This consisted of a bit of iceberg lettuce floating in oil.My husband had ordered the meat grill,which proved to be even worse, a burned hamburger,a burned involtino and and a 90%fat with 10% pork cutlet.
As we started to notice locals walking by looking at us in wonder,no chatting or laughing from the other tables who would get off their chairs and leave as quick as they could after paying the bill, leaving most of their order on their plates.The owner with some friends was sitting at the table behind us.It did not feel good,we also left running without looking back.This horrible evening cost us 36 euro and it dawned on me the this indeed was THE WORST RESTAURANT I have been to in 37 years in Italy.
