We luckily found this restaurant just around the corner from our Hotel. After walking around all day and tired we wanted somewhere close by and what a wonderful find. We went every night and had lunch before our flight home. Home cooked food and great pasta dishes. Family run business, very friendly, could not fault it. Thank you .

This unassuming, comfy, family run spot was a highlight of my week in Italy. In fact, the rabbit I had as my entree was the single best dish of the trip! It's away from the center, but well worth a taxi ride. The prices are reasonable, the ambiance is relaxing, and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. I was... More

I accidentally found this restaurant as I stayed in a nearby hotel. And it was such a great experience! The restaurant doesn't have a card but a fixed menu every evening with some choices. We had a three course menu which was simply great! Must try the tortellini in brodo! Also the other pasta was great! Very nice friendly staff!... More

Just around the corner from the Best Western Hotel Maggiore... Don’t miss ZITA. You will have a great, homemade style Bolognese dining experience. Excellent food and courteous and kind service from the owner and her staff, and all at a more than fair price. You do not need to read more… Just go to ZITA. I was worried that having... More

The food was delisious, hospitality perfect. I adked to modify a main dish but the owner deny due to tradition. Finally she was right, Tortellini alla bolognese served as a soup and it was perfect. Nice sweets also. Very nice overall.
