Looking for a place that was frequented by locals was a case of waiting until 12 noon and see the restaurant fill up with both building workers and local business people. Don't wait too long at this restaurant otherwise you will miss out on a...More

With a two course meal for two with wine and water for just 37€ we were very pleased. The meat selection for starter is a must and the rabbit ragu pasta main were highlights!
