Right from our arrival we were made to feel welcome. All staff were clearly passionate about the food as well as providing an excellent service. The waitresses were wonderful - attentive but without being overbearing and very efficient. We had the antipasti between the three...More

We had lunch here (without reservation, might be hard on busy days!) and had a great experience. The waiter let us know about the primi that were available---all fresh, "fuori menu," and interesting. I had ravioli with porcini and grana while my wife had pasta,...More

Been here several times during the same week. Excellent food and service. Several dishes deserve to be mentioned: antipasti to die for (from pure' with herbs to prosciutto e mozzarella), homemade pasta made based on fresh produce available from local farmers, great quality meat. Antonio...More

The food was perfect, and the service just as well. We were here for lunch, and yes, it was a very good lunch (i recommend ordering the "dish of the day" - piatto del giorno).
