This place may be hard to find. If you blink, you might miss the entrance. But your persistence will be worth your while. You’ll be eating in Barbara’s living room (the owner and chef) and she will treat you like family. Food was delicious (check or call in advance for the special menu - some items need to be to order at least 2 days in advance) and service was friendly. I tried the tagliatelle with squid and peas and the moreno for dessert. I will definitely come back.

I really liked the place. The owner was so cute. The organization, desing of the place, the foods, the appetizers was perfect. I really wished for bigger portions of foods. You can bring your own wine which is really nice too. Prices are not so cheap but not so expensive too, worth every penny. The owner can speak a little english, she is soooo helpful and so nice. I strongly suggest this place.

It's a very pleasant restaurant with 4 tables and a marvelous italian cuccina. everthing is made by herself with nature talent and pure ingredients. The olive oils are very good, and also the herb salt. We can bring our own wine! It's necessary to book it! We recommend it! fantastico!
