We decided to have dinner here on a Tuesday evening. There were only 2 tables taken which was a shame as the food was great, the service very friendly and it was good value for money. We had a bottle of local red wine which was very reasonable. Close to our hotel. Thoroughly recommended.

Difficult to find, and not really tourist friendly (waiter doesn't speak English and no English menus) but friendly and helpful. We had one of the sous chefs translate for us and she did very well and was helpful. The food was good and the prices reasonable.

Everything we had was really good! From simple thing like bread to the paella, everything was delicious. Really good "bang for your buck" restaurant.

Very cozy experience for lunch, owners are friendly and explain all their plates and choices. Food and wine selection is interesting and made with passion, and the cost is acceptable!

Very good and tasty dishes. No English menu which is a good sign for a good restaurant in Italy! We miss that place and talked about their Ravioli the entire trip. Clean toilets!!!

The most recent English review for this restaurant seems to be from 2013, and the restaurant's website indicates that it is under new management, so perhaps it was closed for some period, but definitely not to be missed! Classic Bolognese fare, a notably extensive wine list, and good prices, topped off by really friendly staff. We wished we could have... More
