Very nice typical local restaurant, fairly simple dishes but very tasty, and all fairly reasonably priced. Well located in the centre and picturesque location underground beneath the arches.

We stopped in for dinner & we're glad we did. As you enter you drop below street level into this incredible space of stone archways filled with small tables. Dinner was simply delicious, from the burra w/ tomatoes to the ricotta ravioli to the lightly breaded baked swordfish. Each dish was delightful. We finished with espresso & almond biscotti to...

Our B&B host recommended that Osteria and we followed the advice. And while we can't complain about the food, we don't have many good words about the service. First we waited 10 minutes until someone cleaned the table we were seated at. Then it took some time for the food to arrive. My ravioli with pear and cheese were very... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel. The restaurant is a cosy underground cave. We were greeted by an unfriendly waitress and given 2 different menu's. Every question we asked was just too much. Another waitress came to take our order. Unfortunately she was even grumpier than the first one and completely uninterested. The food however was absolutely delicious.... More

we were also with a Riviera Group so in fairness it was a large group to cater for and I hadn't picked from the menu. Antipasti was ok, Pasta ok, the fish main course really good and the dessert unmemorable. Service was quick (in a good way) but the waitress was really grumpy throughout!

We were recommended to go to this restuarant by Filippo, our host at Centro Storrico, and enjoyed the experience so much that we returned on another two evenings. The restuarant spreads through 3 rooms, and serves local specialities. The food is delicious. We especially enjoyed the shared antipasto platter, almost a meal in itself, the spaghetti with oil, chilli and... More

Stumbled on this restaurant while walking and came back later and got in no problems. Our experience was excellent. Had a choice of tables and even though there was very large party the service was efficient. Then of course the food was excellent as well. We were very impressed and would recommend to anyone to visit for an enjoyable meal.... More
