Very bad service. The menu was written in handwriting and Italian, but no help for us tourist. We had the feeling of not being welcome in the restaurant. Food ok, but nothing special

Family atmosphere, like eating at home! We ordered gnocchi with the secret green sauce (creamy pesto?), gnocchetti, and risotto with squash. Quick & efficient service, generous portions, and everything was absolutely delicious. We would definitely return to this restaurant.
