Three couples who had spent a long and fascinating morning at the excavations were hungry and getting cranky. We arrived at Tubba Catubba well after two, yet despite the hour when restaurants are closing, we got a warm and generous welcome, a choice of two excellent primi (spaghetti with shellfish, penne sort of all'Amatriciana in this Lenten season), a green salad, a nice local red with a third the fizz of a Lambrusco, a choice of lemon tart and tiramisu, and limoncello. The place was comfortable. Host and wait staff tolerated our Italian; the host cheerfully explained the name--the sound of a tambourine. The price was right and the other diners were Italian. I'd go back.
