Excellent find, there are few options in the area, but this is one option you can count on. Excellent service and more importantly food. Excellent restaurant for a family. When passing through we will stop in again.

Easy to find on the 'main' square, this trattoria/pizzeria runs for a long time. Bit a kitschy, but both food and service are good. Pizzas are great, and also the lemon pasta. Fairly priced.

I suppose it depends on the time of year/weather. Outside has a lovely view of the piazza and inside is artfully decorated with marble statues and paintings. Personal preference dictates here.
