food was good to be fair. I think if you only wanted water rather than wine at lunch you were marked down for slower service. Surly is the word that springs to mind.

We were staying nearby for a week so thought we should try it out - glad we did early on to get it out of the system. Would not go back for general service/ambience which is better elsewhere.

Excellent geleteria (La Sorbettiera) next door which is totally separate operation. I would suggest either Al Tranvai along the street on Alla Vecchia Bettola on the other corner of Piazza T Tasso as better options. The main point going for the BBQ is the opportunity to sit outside but I think this is overplayed a bit.

If you are looking for grilled meats, grilled veggies and overall great simple food this is the place. This is not a tourist spot. This is where the locals go to for good food. A big bonus, they love dogs. They moved a chair for our toto and gave her a water bowl. It is a bit out of the way but it is the spot!!!

We read the reviews and thought we would give it a try. When we said no to sparkling water to the waiter the cook came out to tell us to have it. A paper bag with slices of badly cooked bread were dropped on our table and charged us 5? for. Whilst we were waiting for and eating our meal the waiter and the chef kept going over to the park to talk to various people. Not a pleasant experience.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while we were looking for a nice place to have dinner. Great, authentic Italian food at very reasonable prices (including wine). You can sit outside and enjoy the warm summer nights and have a great evening.
