We love Massimo and Lucca who make you feel like family! They serve amazing pastries and quiche in the morning and regional deliciousness at lunch and dinner! Do not ask for scrambled eggs and frites for breakfast nor cut your spaghetti bolognese with a fork...More

It is a small and cramped restaurant, especially inside, very busy. Thank God, we had a table outside. Waht I remember is the dessert, delicious and beautiful panna cotta with fruit.

Stop by earlier in the day if you can to make a reservation. It’s very informal but the food is delicious :)

I did see signs there about rooms as well, but that is all I know about. We booked a room at larosadeiventi right across the street. It was spotless and spacious. Have a great trip!
