Enjoyable dinner in the heart of the city, local antipasti and main dishes. Recommend tortelli and tortellini in brodo. Warm atmosphere, broad choice of wines. The waitress was very kind and attentive.

The jazz festival is the reason we came. A lovely waiter gave us good advice about our food and was very attentive. He explained that the cover charge goes from 2€ (normal in Italy, we have found) up to 5€ if we stay for the...More
