Friendly, quick, service. Ravioli with pistachio and pumpkin sauce, and spaghetti and clams, were both above average. We would go back. Total for two with non-alcoholic drinks was 33 euros -- more than fair. If this review is helpful then please indicate so below.

Mi dispiace io lo so. We never made a reservation, we just stopped there while walking the neighborhood. They were very accommodating so I would think it's no problem without reservation
