I'm not often prompted to post reviews but we lucked on this place during a cycling tour and what a gem! Outwardly unpreposessing and modernist, the food was outstanding: having paid 2 euros each cover charge the previous night at a tourist pizzeria for nothing more than a table cloth, here for E1.50 we had a selection of artisan breads, one topped with grilled tomato, awesome balsamic and olive oil. The local artisan beers are definitely worth a try (we had the pizzica). We just had a pasta and salad but they were everything we could hope for. Just the sort of unexpected gem you hope for on a trip like this.

You have to please them. They do not have to please you. I have lived in Italy for 24 years. There were four people in the restaurant but the hostess insisted that we could not sit by the window. There were men sitting by window.....go figure!

Service here is not on the menu. You are made to feel as if you are a bother to the wait staff, and when asked about daily offerings, told no not today! Go elsewhere and continue to love Italy rather than be put off here.

I have lived in Italy for 20 years in the summers, and traveled alot there. I live in NY in the States, so that is my basis for this review: this place could be in NY and it would be packed! A true breath of fresh air, with its clean modern softly colored interior. Unique dishes, beautifully presented, a fusion of Japanese and Pugliese cuisine. Chef and architect/designer wife run the place and the only complaint is it can be slow.
