Great home-made pasta and other dishes. A good selection of wines. All to be found in this quaint restaurant run by a brother and sister team, annexed to a wonderful little hotel a few blocks from Cuenca's city center.

Price was fair for delicious, homemade italian food. Great service, kind staff. Even as one person you get a general basket of garlic bread when you arrive! I had the gnocchi and 4 cheese sauce and found it to be very delicious. Worth the price!
