The title above says it all. Do not be deceived by the very modest appearance, They serve excellent variations on classic Italian dishes at very reasonable prices. The service is good, and friendly and the wine list interesting. It includes a number of organic wines....More

We had a very tasty lunch here. Food is a bit out there, taking an interesting spin on Italian classics. It does this by using unusual ingredients and non-classic presentation of dishes. We loved the flavours and the mix of vegetarian plus non-vegetarian meals. Complimentary...More

A good restaurant with good service. Located very close to the main square but in a quiet street. It is not a tourist trap! A welcome drink and a welcome appetizer served as a nice surprise. An eklair cookie beside the espresso as a spoil....More

This place has outstanding food and is also the least expensive of the restaurants we used. The lamb chops (5) and potato was 12 euro (one of the specials of the day) and exquisitely done. The ravioli my friend had was the best I have...More
