A really crowdy place so book your table in advance. Service could be better during rush times. Food is great, try various appetizers and save place in your stomach for main course and dessert. Very good food quality.

This 'Trattoria' is one of the best in the old town if you're looking for a good meal without spending too much. I Especially suggest you this place if you're a fan of meat dishes.
