Lovely small restaurant in central location serving excellent food. We visited twice within 5 days. Cosy atmosphere with very friendly and helpful host. Excellent mushroom risotto, ricotta ravioli, salmon fettuccine, panna cotta and cannoli. Pleasant local wines. Highly recommended.

A very family friendly restaurant, the wait staff were very attentive and kind. The menu was relatively varied and the food did not take long to arrive while the taste was stupendous! Would definitely love to go again.
