Great ambiance here and the food was delish! Also loved their house red wine. Our older children were welcome and shared a plate between them. The waitress we had was absolutely lovely, very friendly. We thought the price was reasonable for the quality. Would love to go back again!

We visited this restaurant on our second night after reading the good reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The two waitresses were really friendly and the atmosphere was nice and cosy! We had a pasta course followed by a meat (secondi) course and everything tasted amazing! It is quite a small restaurant and it gets busy so I would... More

We had a group business dinner with a set menu and I can only say that it was "spettacolare". The pasta, the rabbit and the dessert were top notch. I cannot comment on the value for money because we were invited but whatever it was, it was worth.

We went there having booked in advance as we were celebrating a friends birthday. The restaurant is really lovely and quirky inside. The food and service was outstanding, the pasta with beef ragout was delicious, then the local steak sliced with baked sliced potatoes was one of the best I have had and finally the apple pie mmmmm! My mouth... More

Very good food, atmosphere and fantastic service. We deeply recommend. Don't miss out. A nice detail was the free table of tapas pre dinner. Good wines and generous prosecco

We visited this restaurant on the day of our engagement so I was hoping for a special evening and that is exactly what we got. The food is gourmet and is amazing, Michelin star amazing. Prices are above average but really come second to the fine taste, the great wine and the perfect service. Recommend to book in advance as... More

We had a lovely dinner at Il Bistrot. On a quiet square, the place is very cozy, which we very much appreciated as it was pouring outside. Plates looked and tasted awesome. I particularly enjoyed the prawns a l'orange. Wine was great too. Nice waitresses and good music to top it up. Definitely recommended!

The bistro of my dreams is the little tiny restaurant; it’s the cute shop where you can go for a coffee or a glass of wine. It’s a place where you can eat the traditional Italian dish, sip a good wine and meet your people. It’s a place where you can chat while eating spaghetti, while learning secrets, sipping a “brunello”, or a grappa while listening to music or reading a book. Where love gets done and undone. And coffee. Where you’re early and it gets late. Here you are in my home. You are my guests and friends among friends. Here is my piano and my guitar, my books, my music; here’s the best recipe my mom gave me, and some biscotti and my grandpa’s Vinsanto wine.
