Reviewed 12 June 2014

Not so hard to find as another reviewer claims*, but definitely away from the madding crowds, which I found a virtue. So did lots of local Bolognesi, based on the character of the patrons we found there at at lunch-time midweek. Their menu appears to change on a daily basis. My lunch partner and I each had a main (mine was an excellent gnocchetti with radicchio and mushrooms), a glass of vino della casa, 0.5 l. of acqua naturale, all for 21 euros. Service was cheerful and efficient. Absolutely worth a visit.

* N.B. It is situated in the middle of a little plaza, and not well sign-posted from the street so far as I could see. If you use Google Maps, however, you'll have no problem finding it at all.

We stumbled across the Swan cafe but were glad we did. We enjoyed a lovely lunch (large salad, sandwich and pasta) served with drinks for only 16 euros.
Staff very friendly, the Swan is highky recommended for a lovely lunch.
