We had a very satisfying and flavorful lunch in the square. While the restaurant was busy, the service was prompt and efficient and we were unhurried. We both enjoyed pasta dishes with a local wine. Very pleasant.

The best meal we’ve had in Italy so far! You MUST get the stuffed mussels. They are delicious. We also had the seafood spaghetti which was also great. Service was normal.

I believe, for my wife and I, it was approximately 50-60 euros without any wine. One appetizer, two main courses, two desserts and water. We spent a week in Italy and this restaurant fed us our best food.
