Busy, buzzy Italian in the heart of the old town. We just had simple pizzas and a glass of wine which were all excellent. Well worth a try.

Went to Il Matto the night we arrived; was cold outside and the restaurant was cozy. The pasta with mushrooms and the veal limón were well prepared and delicious. A great find!

Our group dined there and very much enjoyed our meals. I had a great salad and spaghetti. Service was excellent and our hotel right across the street.
