As we were living nearby we visited this place one evening. Yes little English spoken but we managed with our little Italian and a very helpful waitress. But we did not enjoy the "welcome" seems locals get treated better. Yes, it's small but we were...More

Found this little restaurant by chance during our honeymoon. We were immediately amused by the handwritten daily menu and no English details. The simple decor and no fuss very friendly staff shows confidence and that the guys know what they are doing. We had pecorino...More

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Osteria del Gatto. From the moment you enter, you can feel the difference compared to other more tourist catered restaurants. The menu was written only in Italian, but the waitress spoke enough English to help us know what...More

Limited menu but the real deal. The ragu was authentic bolognese. The gnocchiletta with hazelnuts was delicious (but rich). Great meal!

Italian only menu and limited spoken English should not stop you. The ravioli in a butter sage sauce was one of the best and the sausage in chianti sauce was scrumptious. Gatto's 4.5 stars are well deserved. Friendly wait staff.

I had an amazing lunch here! This place is small so I nearly missed it as I walked past. I initially heard about it on WIkitravel and thought I'd stop by after an afternoon of sightseeing in the summer heat. I ordered the pici, which...More

As I travel, I try to find authentic, earthy flavours that represent the area, way of life and cooking. In Italy, it seems, for me it means "nonna-like" food, how grandma would have made it. I don't mind fancy tableware nor service without hickups, those...More
