The place is really wonderful as all the old city perched on the mountain. The service is nice and people lovely. Their food offers are particular and if you like these tastes very nice. They are not too economic.

This time I tried the Trombolotto adventure with fresh chunks of red tuna: great! useless to say that pastas with Trombolotto were unique too.
