We had lunch here twice. There was a good selection of food which was simple but tasty and at a reasonable price. Service was fine. It was reasonably busy on both occasions and seemed to be popular with both locals and tourists.

We found this place late one evening and were NOT disappointed. We could tell by the delicious smell and the crowd of locals that is would be good and we were right. The Ribolita is a local dish that everyone should try once and The Penne Stella is an excellent choice too. Everything we had there was good. We visited twice during our trip. The house wine is a good choice or drink a local white called Vernaccia.
