Best gnocchi we've ever had. The couple that runs the place were friendly and cute. Still thinking about it months later.

Just outside, just up the mountain Monte Bre, this place is worth getting to. The chef is from Calabria, souther Italy so don't be afraid to get something or ask him to make it spicy.
