Stopped in here for a quick dinner, as it was close to our B&B, and we had just returned from a long day trip to Cinque Terre. They had arancini on the menu which was what drew me in as I love it and have had a hard time finding it. Unfortunately they were already out of it for the... More

This was in the 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. Probably not worthy of that distinction but good enough for a visit. Large menu with plenty to choose from. I had the rabbit special and was surprised when it came out deepfried like chicken. Tasty but not what I was expecting. My wife's gnocchi was overcooked which was surprising.... More

Nice place, a little dark and crowded with objects but the customer experience is good and the staff will go out of their way to please you. Only one type of (mass) Italian beer is served, which is a pity, I would have wished local beers were also served.

I had the Tortelli Luchesse (homemade ravioli with meat sauce) and my two sons had pizze. All was great until we were ready to go. I asked the owner for the check, and he said the server would get it. I asked the server, and she said yes in a hurried response. A big Italian group came in, and we... More

Great place for a quick bite. Came here from Pisa and kids were hungry. Had a quick beer and very tasty food. Can't go wrong with the choices. You can also write a nice note that they will hang for everyone to see

This is a "locals" place. Nothing fancy but solid good food. The owner is a delight, engaging her diners and ensuring they are happy with their choice. We just arrived from a trans-Atlantic flight. We stayed at the Hotel Rex, just a few blocks away. We started with the Salumi/Fromaggi platter, so good! Pizza to finish along with good house... More

Found this place on TA thought we'd take a chance due to the many positive reviews. The Tagliere di salumi e formaggi with the bread was definitely the highlight...delish! We also had a margherita pizza which we thought was very good but Americanized. Much like we get at home. All and all if we were trying to find something good... More
