This was very homely centrally located restaurant, waiters were humorous and friendly and made people feel really comfortable. Variety of Italian food was really gorgeous – hard to prevent eating too much.

There were lots of pasta plates to choose from. Service was quick and friendly. I had the gnocchi and husband had the tagliatelle with traditional ragu. Both very nice, perfectly cooked pasta, lovely flavours.

This unpresuming restaurant is attached to an osteria and run by the family. The pasta is all freshly made, of course, and their lasagna is an experience like no other. The pasta itself is moist and plump, the meat is also moist and tasty. So...More

From start to finish, everything was perfect - pillowy gnocchi (best we have ever tried), subtle gramigna with sausage, and excellent mains, including a sublime veal roast with brandy, orange, and juniper berries. The owner recommended a great local riserva Sangiovese. All in all, fantastic....More

I'm sure they have non-meat vegetarian options, but probably not Vegan. It depends on your version of "vegetarian".
I am thinking of making a reservation here for dinner, as this was recommended by several people. Can you tell me what is the approximate cost with and without ordering a secondi, i.e. just an appetizer, primi and possibly dessert? Grazie mille
