Excellent sensibility for local products in a cozy environment full of history. We were delighted with such good attention to detail. Will definitely come back. Highly recommended!

What a gem. The decor is stunning a great mix of old and new. A wonderful place to eat. My family and I ate there this week and it was extremely good. Would definitely recommend even for a cup of coffee and a 'bun'.

From outside it would be impossible to know that a beautiful restaurant lies inside. The owner is apparently an artist who has personally designed a wonderful garden area. I and some colleagues were working in the area for a few days and ended up eating here each day. Wonderful food - try the tuna capaccio.

From the street you would have any idea of what a delight awaits you as you enter. Wow, this place makes you feel so relaxed and special. We sat in the garden on a perfect spring lunch time and thoroughly enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the local wine and the ambience of this retreat from the tourists inside the wall.... More

I used to love going to this restaurant, but I fear that their success has gone to their heads and they're experimenting with being international. My ravioli were good enough, but were they home made? We waited a very long time to be served, there were six of us, and some had finished their first courses before the rest of... More

A real family experience. The outdoor garden is a beautiful setting. They grow many of their own vegetables and pride themselves in their tomato sauce from their own mix of tomato varieties. Some of the pasta dishes are from their own home made pasta. The pistacchio icecream drizzled with gin was the icing on the cake. The son is a... More
