I love markets. I love local food. But I have never seen such a lovely person making such tasty sandwiches worth waiting for! It's a once in a lifetime experience. Simply enjoy the show during the preparation, and taste a piece of heaven afterwards. Enjoy!

Yesterday we had Dinner there and we had a primi and a secondi. My girlfriend ordered pasta a le seppia and then the lamb. Both were really good. I ordered the squit caponata and then the tuna. Very good but small portions!
