The food was excellent (ravioli, spaghetti, risotto with seafood), the waiters were very friendly (especially Stefano) and brought us several "compliments" that was very enjoyable. Nice homelike place with attractive prices.

Yes it parked at the street in front to let us all out, went away and parked somewhere else, so it won't be any problem for those who can't walk very far
