The outdoor seating isn't great (picturesque street with parked cars), but the food makes up for everything. We had lunch; new chef, credit card machine not working, owner frazzled. But the food is perfect. We shared grilled calamari, went on to spaghetti alla vongole and...More

This is an amazing place, a true culinary gem. The menu is simple and the food is deliciously well balanced. The pastas are hand made from scratch daily and the desserts are divine. Just a perfect balance of sweetness and the taste of the ingredients....More

We were very late for lunch and every restaurant had closed but the very friendly owner of Usteria said he could still serve us som dishes, like tartar, which we ordered. The tartar tasted amazing with basil and Parmesan in it. Apparently he makes it...More
