A great place to stop for lunch. Try the Velluta, a wonderful potato soup with ham and parmigiano cheese. Great in the cold weather we experienced. We also tried the tagliatelli bolognese which was also great. Nice work with the food!

This became our base during our week in town, mostly for drinks, but the food looked great. The aperitif and buffet session was incredibly popular, and lunchtimes are jam packed too. Great for a quick bowl of pasta. We raised the average age by quite...More
