We had walked by this restaurant on several occasions since it is in the neighborhood where my husband, my sister and myself are staying. We decided last night to give it a try and we're glad we did. It is a small intimate place with a lot of dark wood and wonderful Tuscan yellow gold walls that combine to give it a very warm feeling.
The service was excellent - though it is true that we ate early (7:45) and were the only customers for the beginning of our meal. After we were seated we were delighted to receive a free welcoming glass of prosecco and some cheese spread while we looked at the menu. The table was set out with a proposed Tuscan red that we tried and were quite pleased with the suggestion.
We ordered bruschetta for an antipasto - which was typical in character - but very well done with excellent tomatoes and bread toasted just right and served before it became soggy.
We each ordered a primo and shared tastes- a ghitarini - with fresh homemade pasta with cherry tomatoes and buffalo and basil - the main complaint may have been that the portion was too large; ravioli with spinach and ricotta in a cream sauce - very rich and delicious, and a lasagnetta which was a baked crispy pasta shell with mixed vegetables and a light cream sauce with a creamy cheese topping
All of them were excellent.
We ordered a caprese salad and some mixed grilled vegetables for contorni - which included eggplant, green peppers and some others all well-seasoned.
The presentation of the food was lovely. Also the bread and particularly the flattened breadsticks were fresh and quite good.
At the end of the meal we refused dessert, my husband commenting that he was too full. Our waitress, Cristina, said that she knew just the thing for that and returned with three complimentary limoncelli for us to settle our stomachs.
All in all, I highly recommend the restaurant.
