It's no more than a few tables, often shared between strangers. It has loads of atmosphere and authentic food. Its simple fare, but really good. No menu, just whatever is available.

Best food, value and fun evening yet in Italy. The antipasto was so filling, and modified with scrumptious vegetables for me, I could have stopped there. My husband loved the cold meats. Then came pasta dishes, one with meat, one with asparagus. Cheap but delicious...More
