Hard to find if you dont know your way, but absolutely worth it.
Excellent food, good and attentive service and a very nice and relaxed atmosphere. I will definitely go back.

The appetizer I am talking about is their hot focaccia with mushroom, eggplant, tomato in olive oil; it is very good and filling. The place is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, good parking, nice service. The place needs a little brightening up, but their private garden room for big groups is quite nice. Pizza and pasta are good, but maybe better.

A little bit hard to find, as it is nested in a quiet and off the beaten track, but it's worth it.
The genuine and authentic food (pizza Margherita and the antipasto plate were yummm!!!) combined with a cosy environment make this place a good choice if you want to relax in front of good food, a nice wine or beer and good company! Yes the owner Paolo is such a character and makes you feel at home. Recommended!!!

To say the experience was amazing is an understatement. I cannot decide what keeps me coming back, if it's the focaccia, the pizza or the pasta (the the main course is absolutely lovely as well.)

So maybe you can't call it the fancy pants of restaurants. But it's nice and cozy and quiet and really authentic as you can get, and really it's just honest to goodness great food minus all the meticulous fancy dinner plating --- but that doesn't mean it doesn't look appetizing, because it does.

The owners are lovely people. I met them the second time I visited this month. Yes, second. It's that good. No Kidding
