This place is tucked away in a quiet location off of the restaurant sprawl around Piazza Magiore and well worth a visit. The woman who seemed to be in charge of the place will proudly discuss how she makes her pasta by hand, and it's...More

I'm sure they have non-meat vegetarian options, but probably not Vegan. It depends on your version of "vegetarian".
I am thinking of making a reservation here for dinner, as this was recommended by several people. Can you tell me what is the approximate cost with and without ordering a secondi, i.e. just an appetizer, primi and possibly dessert? Grazie mille
